Is anyone using extremepixel.com skins with their PhotoPost? I just installed cobalt per the directions for vBulletin but therer are obviously some path issues with PhotoPost.

correct image path = http://www.cgsynapse.com/forum/cobalt

current image path = http://www.cgsynapse.com/photopost/cobalt

I suppose if I were lazy I could cheat and place the skin directory under photopost, but there's got to be another way to make this work.

Your images are relative path in that skin there are 3 workarounds.

1. copy the image folder under photopost structure in the same format as the forums directory

2. In the styles admin section of that style replace all relative urls with full urls

3. Edit our header-inc.php file and add colbalt directory to our header and footer replacement variable line

I'm using extremepixels layouts on my site:

http://www.extremefitness.com

I also created directory under the vb3enhanced directory with the styleid and then customized the templates to match my skins.

i.e. vb3enhanced/16

and then modified the ppopen and ppclose to use the same kind of wrapper as the skins.
