Maybe i'm too noob in these colors & graphics.... very true... you might be right... it might be a solid color.
so what you say ? Should i include the background of phpbb.com there... :?:

it is not the phpbb.com background, it is only a simple image, so you could include it if you want ;)

PD: I will use this style (under some modifications) in phpbb Argentina (Soon) , so you will be a little famous ;)

I love this style, but liked the profiles on the right like they are in ProSilver. I tried to figure out how to change them, but it didn't work, can you tell me how I could do that?

Thanks in advance,
Mary

a think that a link is better than a search box in order to prevent spam attacks, which could generate lost of search queries ;)

I have both using Swanky's theme..



Question:
How do I reduce the gap between the profile area on left and the main body of text?

&

Vertically align the text on index page for the forums (ie. title, topic, post, last post)
Title seems to be top, topic/post are middle and last post bottom.

Thankyou! GREAT THEME!!

First you have to create the image bg_logo.jpg (900px * 89px) and upload it to root/styles/Swanky/theme/images/bg_logo.jpg

Then Open root/styles/Swanky/theme/colours.css and Find:

Code: Select all

/* Round cornered boxes and backgrounds
---------------------------------------- */
.headerbar {
	background-color: #717F8C;
	background-image: url("{T_THEME_PATH}/images/bg_header.gif");
	color: #FFFFFF;
}
Replace it with:

Code: Select all

/* Round cornered boxes and backgrounds
---------------------------------------- */
.headerbar {
	background-color: #717F8C;
	background-image: url("{T_THEME_PATH}/images/bg_logo.jpg");
	color: #FFFFFF;
}
Find:

Code: Select all

.forumbg {
	background-color: #717F8C;
	background-image: url("{T_THEME_PATH}/images/bg_header.gif");
}
Replace with:

Code: Select all

.forumbg {
	background-color: #717F8C;
	background-image: url("{T_THEME_PATH}/images/bg_logo.jpg");
}
Open styles/Swanky/theme/stylesheet.css and Find:

Code: Select all

/* Round cornered boxes and backgrounds
---------------------------------------- */
.headerbar {
	background-color: #717F8C;
	background-image: url("{T_THEME_PATH}/images/bg_header.gif");
	color: #FFFFFF;
}
Replace with:

Code: Select all

/* Round cornered boxes and backgrounds
---------------------------------------- */
.headerbar {
	background-color: #717F8C;
	background-image: url("{T_THEME_PATH}/images/bg_logo.jpg");
	color: #FFFFFF;
}
Next, go into you Administration Control Panel, click on the "Styles" tab at the top, click on "Themes" under "Style components" on the left, and click on "Refresh" next to the theme/style you have edited.

END :D

thanks alot for the intrustions luchitox! it worked perfectly :D

now if someone can teach me how to change the width to change the same width as this form that would be great!

i'll try using this method: http://www.easytutorials.org/prosilver_fixed_width.html
but nothing happen when i made the changes, also played around with the same # as well and i got nothing.

and also ill tried using the back.png as the background. it did not match with the forum sadly.
it look like this:

can someone please tell me what is the correct #xxxxxx for this?
