Thanks for making such a great skin.

Could you please take a quick look at this site and see if everything looks normal?


We noticed the header file was from a previous skin we installed. Do you why this happened (while installing your skin, it does not update the header file)?

Also, the "Like this" button is in green color. Does your theme include a complete set of new icons?

Our Status update link does not work, do you know why?

How do I make changes to the various colors? such as border color, background colors?

Thank you very much for your help.

Hi @Seanspeng,

I think I know what the problem is, to keep maximum compatibility for future version I only exported the customization and not the entire skin. To fix the problem simply make the default root IPB skin as your parent.

Steps : This should work. Let me know. About Icons Currently my focus was more towards usability & simplicity. I have paid less attention to icons and believed for time being one can use some nice icon set from Market :smile: However I am planning to include an updated file with new icon set which will be available for all. This might take time so no promises here :tongue:

[*]Go to looks and Feel [*]Go to Skin Settings for vCool skin [*]Set the parent skin as " None - Root Skin Set "

Well that CMS is on SilverStripe, found it more customization and faster. Plus the framework gives us lots of opportunity to build modules & scale. :)

We recently migrated from WordPress to SIlverStripe. Its admin is not very optimized but customization power for a developer is awesome:)
