Style Help
« on: September 23, 2013, 11:24:24 pm »
I want my forum to look awesome like this one: http://theheartofimagination.createaforum.com/index.php, but I can't figure out how.  There is no way I can create my own style and try to understand all of those codes.  Is there a shortcut or a specific section of all the codes?

The forum you posted looks good but doesn't seem difficult to replicate, maybe just time consuming. If you break everything down however, what makes it look good is the combination of A) background image(s), B) background colors, and C) text colors. All 3 of those can be easily learned:
background images:
Code: [Select]
background-image: url('URL');
background colors:
Code: [Select]
background-color: #????;
colors:
Code: [Select]
color: #????;
That's the bare minimum for those code, there's some more advanced stuff available but I hope you get the point. You can't expect to magically have a good looking forum unless it's already done for you, except it isn't(well maybe some of the styles in the Style Manager are kinda good).
All codes I make are tested on the latest version of Google Chrome and upon request of other browsers.

Where do I put it?  Doesn't work in my headers and footers.
