"blue sky" skin for the new version of avant

Post by UFO UFO » Wed Jun 20, 2007 6:14 am

hello everyone,

since i really like this skin for the browser, and since many forum users said that they like it, i've created the skin again for the new version of avant.
i wanted to put the skin in the getskinned website, but from some reason it doesn't work.
here's the skin screenshot:

from some reason, i can't find any way to upload files here in the forum, so for now, you can download the skin here:

GetSkinned is Kaput. We have our own slightly buggy site here: http://forum.avantbrowser.com/dload.php After you upload your info you'll get a message that the user doesn't exist. Ignore it. One of the mods will then approve it so it won't appear immediately--no need for multiple uploads--even though it looks that way. If you look at the top of the Forum page you'll also see the link next to "usergroups".

Sara :D

If you had read my post it would have lead you to the site--all you had to do was click on the link. The only problm with the Doc's link is that it skips over chosing whether this is a Complete or Background skin.

I'm not seeing it yet, but the server may have to update. I'll keep checking.

When you have made the changes you want to, then log in to
your skin and find the "edit" button.

Then upload your new skin. Name it F.ex. "yourskinname".skn version 2 or something
so other will know its an update.
Dont forget to duck....
