How do you edit the style?

Post by Gideon5L2F »

The default style of my new forum is called 'Sub Silver.' As I understand it, I can choose another style from your selection of available styles or else I can create my own.

But I don't want a completely different style. I just want to edit a few changes. How do you do these things:
  • 1/ Change the logo.gif in the top left corner.

    2/ Change the colour scheme. (I can only change the background)

    3/ Add some text above the Forum index.
Can these things be done in the administration panel or do I have to get into the code.

to change logo you need to replace templates/subSilver/images/logo_phpBB.gif with your image

to change colors edit it in admin control panel

to add some text edit overall_header.tpl (that's usual html file)

More editing

Thanks for the help.

Now I would like to edit the link message at the top of each page: "Log in to check your private messages." Could you tell me where that file is found?

you can edit color in control panel, but it will be changed with some other colors too


or you can open overall_header.tpl, find this:

Code: Select all

.maintitle	{
	font-weight: bold; font-size: 22px; font-family: "{T_FONTFACE2}",{T_FONTFACE1};
	text-decoration: none; line-height : 120%; color : {T_BODY_TEXT};
}
and replace {T_BODY_TEXT} with your color (like #FF0000)

That's one ugly style with tiny invisible text (maybe in IE it does look ok, but it doesn't on Opera). You need to edit all colors in css file. To change admin and moderator colors you need to edit font color 2 and font color 3 in admin control panel.

i don't know exactly.

fs2 is a very buggy style and i just noticed its complete incompatibility with all browsers except for internet explorer, so that style was removed from download section. i suggest you switch to some other style until author fixes bugs.

In ie it is okay but in mozilla it really is small and not that easy on the eyes and in mozilla it isn't centered as in ie. Perhaps you should work toward making it compatible with other browserd?
