How can I change the logo background area to plain black #000000

I have a logo that has a black background and even with removing the header_black.png and header_black_rtl.png there is a slight gradient or lighter color, although it looked black until I added my logo. Now the logo is in an obvious black box.

Are you using Aero black? You will have to match the Aero black color to the logo. You can however change the banner in overwrite.css. I have done this. My banner is is named 1.jpg. The code in overwrite.css looks like this:

Code: Select all

body {
	background: #DFDFDF url("./images/bg_black.gif") repeat-x !important;
}

.headerbg {
	background: #0B0B0E url("./images/1.jpg") repeat-x  !important;
}

.headerbar {
	background-image: url("./images/1.jpg") !important;
}

.rtl .headerbar {
	background-image: url("./images/header_black_rtl.png") !important;

Yes, I am using the Aero black. I appreciate the help, but no matter how I edit that file, it is not the clean look I am striving for. The back has a gradient and a border and I am just looking for a solid black background.

I thought the answer would be to use a transparent .gif and just let it use whatever background is there, but when I did that, somehow I am getting a border of white which is not around my original image.

Installed the Precise Similar Topics extension and it is not working with my board, although it is showing if I switch to ProSilver. The FAQs for this mod say:
4) Do you use non-default board styles?
It might be possible this extension has a compatibility issue with a 3rd party style. Notify us and the style authors of the possible issue.
I have notified the author of the extension and I am posting here as requested.

More than likely it is because this style does not inherit from prosilver. If it did you wouldn't have these issues.

In the download are quite a few template files in the aero directory I am pretty sure, though I haven't checked, that one of them relates to the extension. The extension is looking for specific files in prosilver and subsilver2 not in aero. If aero inherited completely, issues such as these wouldn't occur. The style may not match up from prosilver to aero but the extension would display.

That's one way to solve it, another way is for the extension author to make an "all" template for the extension but that does not guarantee that it will look appropriate for that style ("all" is applicable to any other style that may be installed on the forum other than prosilver and subsilver2).

That's why it shows up in prosilver but not in aero.

I really do not understand how these things work.

It is frustrating as the extension displays everywhere on the backend. I can see it, activate it and make all kinds of edits to it. I have no idea what files to check.

Since the aero black template is based of the parent aero template, I pointed the aero template to prosilver in the configuration file, but that did not work. I did not try pointing the aero black template to prosilver, but I expect there would not be much difference.

I expect that is why the creator of the extension suggests that I contact the creator of the template as well. If the changes can be made, and the author of the extension is willing to make them, then that would work best for anyone using the template and not just me.

Yes, it is a lot of help. Did you have to make any changes whatsoever?

Damnit. I am using Bluehost and they do not support MyISam or InnoDB.

So Precise Similar Topics uses the MyISam or InnoDB? You would think it would use Mysql.

Okay, it looks like InnoDB is the engine to Mysql. I would like to try this Precise Similar Topics. I have several extensions and use this theme without trouble.

I use Geekstorge as my host.
