That is how it is supposed to work.   From the search box when you are at the Main Index it searchs the entire forum.   When inside a Board/Thread etc it searchs only that specific Board/Thread.   It gives more flexibility that way.   Say you know there is a specific Style in the Style Board here.  You can go into that Board and search for the name of the style and it will search only that Board instead of searching the entire forum.   You can also use Advanced Search (via the Search Link on the Menu Bar) and specify which boards/etc you want it to search.

I can tell by a quick look at your site that it is not the updated css.   See the gap underneath the menu tabs?    That gap would not be there if you have the updated css in place.   There are several other places in the css that changed from RC3 to 2.0 so its important to use the updated version of it.   Try creating a new style and grab the css from here and set the forum to that and see how it goes.   Ive a busy day and am off to the airport now.  Will check back in when I can.

As I told you in another thread you are using an older version of the css from before the forum's were upgraded to the current version of the forum software.   You need to go to the thread for that style and get the css that is posted there now as it was updated to be compatible with 2.0

You'll need to change the padding in the body rule too

Code: [Select]
 background: #252525 url( repeat;
 font: 78%/130% verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;
 margin: 0 auto;
 padding: 15px 5%;

Also it appears you are using the old version of the css for that style from before I updated it for smf 2.0
Would be best to go back to the thread and grab the css again and use that as it has many changes to it.

xboi - yes.    That is how it knows what style you have chosen.  Otherwise you will have to keep choosing it when you visit the forum.     Of course if you have your browser remove cookies upon closing it, or use a program that cleans up cookies for you, you'll have to do so each time too.   The code does not access your Look & Layout settings preferences for themes.  It merely gives you an option of which style to use  (styles only change the look of the default theme) and via cookies remembers your choice.

No...   the html bbcode tags can be used only by the Administrator.   
The Mod that is installed for embedding the videos is set up for Youtube videos only.  He would have to install a different Mod that handles other sites codes to do that.

I doubt that'll be possible in the future

not necessarily true. If someone can come up with a style changer code that works with CAF, then it would be possible.
Yes but the chances of someone doing that for CaF is pretty low. This is unless Createaforum himself tries to find a way but I'm pretty sure he's busy
Actually the chances are not low at all.   One of the style changer codes that is used with the SMF for Free forums WILL work with the forums with Createaforum with just a small edit to the code.  I have it working on my CreateaForum test forum.    The thing is though that there are few styles posted here and those that are are not all updated to work properly with smf 2.0 so for right now the codes pretty senseless for me to bother posting.

I'll go ahead and post it if anyone wants to play around with it but as I said there arent many styles to use with it at the moment.

This code is a combination of Agent Moose's dropdown code and some tweaks by me

A.  Set your forum to the Default Style

B.  Find other styles you want to use.   Add each of them in Style Manager. 

C.  For each of those stylesheets edit these lines in the code:
     (add more if you need them, delete those you do not need)

Code: [Select]
Skin[n++] = ["STYLE NAME"," NAME/STYLE.css?fi11"];
1.   Replace "STYLE NAME"  with the name of the style
        (this is how the name will show in the dropdown box)
2.   Replace "FORUM NAME"  with the name of your forum.
3.   Replace "STYLE" with the name of the style.
        (the name you named the style when you created it in manage styles)

Do this for each one you want to use.

D.  When done with the edits the code goes in your Header and will center the dropdown box at the top of your forum.

Code: [Select]

var n = 0;var Skin = new Array();
Skin[n++] = ["STYLE NAME"," NAME/STYLE.css?fi11"];
Skin[n++] = ["STYLE NAME"," NAME/STYLE.css?fi11"];
Skin[n++] = ["STYLE NAME"," NAME/STYLE.css?fi11"];
Skin[n++] = ["STYLE NAME"," NAME/STYLE.css?fi11"];

//Created by Agent Moose (
document.write("<center><select id='SkinChooser'><option value='default'>Choose Style</option>");
document.write("<option value='" + Skin[i][1] + "'>" + Skin[i][0] + "</option>");
document.write("</select> <input type='button' value='Change' onclick='setSkin();' /></center>");
function setCookie(name, value, expires){
var deCookie = name + "=" + escape(value);
expires= expires.toGMTString();
deCookie += "; expires=";
deCookie += expires;
document.cookie = deCookie;
function getCookie(name){
var dc = document.cookie;
var prefix = name + "=";
var begin = dc.indexOf("; " + prefix);
if (begin == -1){
begin = dc.indexOf(prefix);
if (begin != 0) return false;
}else begin += 2;
var end = document.cookie.indexOf(";", begin);
if (end == -1)
end = dc.length;
return unescape(dc.substring(begin + prefix.length, end));
function delCookie(name){
expires = new Date(1807,1,1);
expires = expires.toGMTString();
deCookie = name;
deCookie += "=delete; expires=";
deCookie += expires;
document.cookie = deCookie;
function changeSkin(Agent){
document.write("<link rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' href='" + Agent + "' />");
var Omi = "default";
document.getElementById("SkinChooser").onchange = function(){
Omi = Skin[parseInt(document.getElementById("SkinChooser").selectedIndex)-1][1]
Omi = "default";
function setSkin(){
if(Omi == "default") delCookie("Skin");
if(Omi != "default") setCookie("Skin",Omi,new Date(9999,1,1));

Some embed codes will work (for you as Admin only) by using the html bbcode tags.  You would do it this way:

Code: [Select]
put the code here

You can put a small logo image there..   upload the image to someplace like Photobucket/Imageshack/Tinypic.  Get the direct link to the image.   Go to Admin > Layout Settings > Theme Settings.   Put the url in the box where it says:  "Logo Image URL"

You can't.   But you can hide the post group titles for grouped members by going to Admin > Layout Settings > Theme Settings and putting a checkmark in "Hide post group titles for grouped members:"

In other words - it will no longer say Newbie/etc under your name.

You CAN change only those Child Board names by adding this right underneath that code I had you change
Code: [Select]
.table_list tbody.content td.children a
color: #000;

Change #000 to the color you want

At the top of the css - change the color for the links there.   It'll change them thruout the forum.

Code: [Select]
a:link, a:visited
 color: #82705B;
 text-decoration: none;

Forum url?
Did you refresh/reload your browser after making the change?

Style Support / Re: Just a quick question
« on: August 18, 2011, 05:17:13 pm »
just a slight bump-

So whichever is the default theme, they must use it?
Yes.  Members can not choose styles.   They see the style that you choose for the forum.

Modify the style in Style Manager in Admin
Search for this in the css:

Code: [Select]
.table_list tbody.content td.children
   color: #555;
   font-size: 85%;

Change color: #555; to the color you want
