Need a little help please!
« on: December 04, 2010, 04:13:07 am »
Ok so I have successfully achieved a background for my site. How do i go about changing the color of the stuff the actual forum is on? The current theme doesn't quite go.

You would have to edit the style sheet's CSS. Go to Admin>CP>Manage Styles.

Colors within the theme are in HEX color codes, change those up accordingly.

Yes I know how to do that. I was talking about the second background, where all the boards and things are.

hi moondancer..  as "A" noted you'll edit the css to do that.  You'll also need to edit some images, upload them to something like Photobucket and use the urls from there (replace them in the css)    Mostly the main_block.png image and there are MANY places in the css that you would have to replace that image url.   Im afraid its very confusing to explain and there is not a tutorial for doing that.    If you know css and are good with graphics and can weed thru it to figure out what things cover what it CAN be done.
 
Ive attached the main_block.png file so you can take a look at it.   The images in that one file are used throughout the forum.  You would need to change the colors in that image but would also need to change some color codes throughout the css for areas that use that image.
