Are you saying that Earthbound doesn't display correctly for you? If so, can I have a screenshot please so I can take a guess what is wrong?

Actually there are a lot of spots. I am upgrading my forum tonight when I get home. So I will get you those shots as soon as I can. But that is alot of screen shots. Plus the safari is on my Ipad and I can't do print screens. So I will type that stuff out.

Safari

1. - IPcontent

Recent articles is all light blue and white- everything

Latest gallery text box is blue

Recent topics text box is blue

Navigation bar is two rows

Recent files is blue

Recent entries is blue

Search is below navigation bar

2.chat

Chat has blue area around where you type

2. Every page

Logo bar is off to the left vs centered

I can get print screens of the IE9 stuff later. But I noticed that generally any change in your browser window size from 100% skews everything up.

OK ... Content was re-started on this site after Earthbound was released as was Chat. If you want to open a support ticket in your client area with a username and password that gives access to your ACP> Look&Feel then I can fix most of that blue stuff in Content for you.

The search is intended to be below the navigation bar and you shouldn't be able to see it if you're not logged in. If you mean the top nav being two rows then I believe that is a result of Evanescence installing a third party mod which again was installed after the skin was released.

I can't do anything about the viewing at less than 100% thing.

The logo bar (ignoring that third party mod) should go all the way across your screen(at 100%) so if it's different to that then that's the only thing I'll need a screeny of.

I have Windoze and have never been able to get Safari to work on it. :( There again I can't afford an iPad LOL so am no use there either.

Perhaps I am misunderstanding you? You have to be able to view a skin on different browsers and different sizes. I must be misunderstanding... I do know that the problem with safari and IE skewing the logo bar at over 100% are both related.

125% IE9

Ok I have Safari open on Windows and it is different than on my Ipad. On the normal screen size, but logged out, the logo bar is left, but everything else seems ok. (besides the blue). Maximided, it is fine.

But, you log in, and this is what happens on the IPcontent page. Thus explains why I kept seeing differnt results.

Would you be able to fit three, 4-5 letter words and a cutout of an animal for the logo bar with this? I like the green lettering the way it is. So you would just have to dupluicate that, and cut out the animal and place it on the left next to the lettering.. Can it be done?

Oh and one more thing. Are you saying that this 3.33 skin is 100% compatible with 3.34?

No, I'm not saying that this skin is 100% compatible ... just that this site and my site uses it.

I can't duplicate those problems because I can't get Safari to work. I'll have to leave this one for Evanescence in case she has Safari, sorry :(

This is not the "Limited Edition" skin or an upgrade to "Limited Edition" skin that was designed so many years ago, but "Limited Edition" was an inspiration in designing "Earthbound". This is a completely new skin with a similar header to the old "Limited Edition" skin.

Earthbound needs to be upgraded to work with IP.Content and IP.Chat and IBProArcade as well as IPB 3.3.4, so there are likely to be a few things "off" in some areas of the skin right now. Another thing to consider is that ALL skins designed here at IBSkin are for 1280 x 720 (or larger) resolution, so depending on how you are viewing the skin, it may be a little "off" in some areas, like if you are using the Ipad or another tablet type device, or viewing it from your cell phone. This would be true with most other custom skins designed by anyone unless they left all the original template code in tact or at least designed the skin to have a smaller logo as in the default IPB skin. A larger logo in the header can throw off a skin in how it is viewed on some devices.

While Earthbound is not yet upgraded to IPB 3.3.4, there are no noticeable skin issues either. The upgrade edits required for IPB 3.3.4 are not noticeable on the public side viewing, so this is not the reason for your display issues I'm afraid.

I am viewing this skin in Safari, Internet Explorer, FireFox, Google Chrome and Opera and it displays perfectly for me on all browsers. I am using Windows 7 1920x1080 resolution on one computer, Windows Vista 1600x900 on another computer and Windows XP 1280x720 on another computer to confirm proper display and everything looks great in all browsers. I will need to know more about what device, what operating system and what resolution you are using to view the skin to understand more on how to fix this issue as I can not re-create it on any of my 3 computers at this time, and no one else has reported such issues since the skin was released, so I'm kinda stumped on this one, but I wont give up, don't worry. :thumbsup:

As for the custom edits you request, it sounds like you are needing a custom logo, and this can be purchased in the IBSkin Shop under the "Add-Ons" section. :thumbsup:

Sorry I was away a bit. My IPB upgrade failed miserably. And I decided to try it again this last weekend. Failed miserably a bunch more. Finally, it is all set. :)

I understand it isn't Limited Edition, just similar in a few ways. But this one is soo much better! It is so smooth and crisp. No clunky boxes like old IPB. I just have to have it! Always did love your work. Do you ever do mobile skins also? I would gladly pay extra, I see you fixed Earthbound up a bit already. :)

As for the logo, I was just wondering if all that could fit. If so, I will be getting that also, once the skin is all set

Anyways, I use Windows 7, IE9 32 bit, 1280 X1024. And set my browser window to 125% (setting in lower right corner of IE) My eyes are just getting old and I need to have IE screens zoomed a bit. I think the zoom is what is throwing the skin off. That is definately related to what affects safari. Which in turn affects Ipads also, Some sort of auto size adjustment I think.

I know someone that knows how to fix it. Want me to ask him? Although I would feel kind of odd asking. He does my present skin. I got my present skin when you stopped updating smooth society and limited edition. Then I also idled my site for a couple of years. You know that smooth society was awesome also. I liked the style even better than the limited editions.

I know how to fix it. Use Firefox instead of Internet Exploder. You can zoom text only:

Been using IE ever since Netscape browser became obsolete. Besides, these skins are the only thing on the net that appears off on the Ipad. The Ipad views all sites without mobile skins perfectly.

I guess my question about the logo is, can the text area be made a little bit wider to fit a graphic and 5 more characters. While retaining the same font?

So you are saying it can be done? If so, which one do I pick for this?

Strike that... I likely would want the premium with psd files. Sorry to be a pain, but I want this to be perfect since I want to buy the works. And want to swoop in and cash out all at once. When I haveall the details ironed out.

Does copyright removal apply to all future skin upgrades?

And the stock team icons, what do they look like for this skin. Or do I get to pick the colors?

The logo can be designed to your specification, that is not a problem. Copyright removal applies to the skin as long as you have it, no matter how many upgrades, however, please understand that not all upgrades to our skins are free. It depends on how extensive the skin changes are with IPB's MAJOR upgrades. We've all been lucky these past few upgrades and there were hardly any changes at all, so the upgrades were free, but where a major upgrade is concerned (such as IPB 3.2 to IPB 3.3) there is sometimes a small $5.00 or $10.00 upgrade fee depending on the amount of work involved.

Stock team icons are where we change the team/group names on the team icons already included in the skin pack you downloaded. If you would like new team icons made for you, or color changes, etc, you need to purchase the custom team icons here: http://www.ibtheme.com/forums/index.php/store/product/96-custom-team-icons/

I hope all this helps you make your decision on your purchase. If you need any further assistance, I'm happy to help. I'm following this topic now, so I will answer any questions you may have. :thumbsup:

I look forward to doing business with you. :)

The only thing holding me back is the logo bar being off on both my computer and Ipad. Would switching to a logo bar like on your pure skin fix that? Could that be incorporated with the earthbound skin? And with the green, cream, and touch of gold colors? If so, and if it would take care of the lopsided logo bar, then I will be all set.

The pure skin logo is far bigger than the one on earthbound and it would probably throw things off more. Besides, the pure skin has a centered logo and earthbound logo is aligned left. I wish I had some way to see what you are seeing so I could figure out what the problem is.

Ah yes, the logo aligning left.... I wonder if that is related... You see right now as I type, the logo is alignged left. But the forum is aligned right. The pure on my Ipad is close to perfect alignment.

Now that is odd. The default IPB skin logo is aligned left. As I stated, this is one of the least modified skins I have to date besides Red Pro. Hold on, let me look at something right quick. Stand by....

Ok, do a hard refresh on the earthbound skin on any page. (ctrl +f5 or on apple products it's cmd + f5) and see if it's fixed.

Can't hard refresh on an Ipad since I have no ctrl or f5 etc buttons. But I loaded up a new window. And now there are 3 rows of black under the logo. The search box is on the second row, and the third row has nothing on it.

Oh and the IPB default skin is fine.

Ok, what about now? I made the logo smaller this time instead of bigger.

Well the 2 extra rows created by the first change are gone. But it is still the same. Do you want me to ask the person who does my old skin? He knows how to fix that. I wonder if it is because the top bar sticks out too far right? Then pushes everything else off? Or could it be the extra top row that you use for your site?

The lower black bar and the green logo bar are much shorter than the top two black lines. If that helps any. They both reach the "n" in the word sign.

Ahhhh... that is the "Pro Menu" that is causing this. It's because Earthbound hasn't been designed to work with ProMenu yet, that's all. Let me disable it right quick and then you can see if that fixes it. If not, then if you could, please ask your guy to see if he can help us. Pretty please! But let me try this first...

Okay, see if that fixes it right quick before I re-enable the ProMenu
