Just a quick question. I've been porting this portal to suit the theme I'm working on at a test forum. I need to change the colors in a couple of areas but I haven't found where in the portal.css file. The arrows in this linked screenshot show where I want to change the colors. Could someone please tell me where to make this change?

PS: Where do I edit the content for the links block?

This has been mentioned several times Download firefox and install a addon called firebug also colorzilla.
inspect the page and hover over what you want to find and in the inspect box will be the code to change.

The tests I've done with this portal all went well. Final question I have is .... I'm going to install this on a live site. Backups of everything have already been done. Before I proceed, though ... this live site is very heavily modded. Are there instructions so I can install this portal manually?

You do install it manually...the only automated thing is the install script to run the SQL queries which shouldn't interfere with any other mods.
The box said 'You need Windows XP or better' .... so I installed linux.

Sorry to bug again. Is there a block for a calendar on this portal? If there isn't, can I get one somewhere and create a new block for it?

Thanks, Mitch, I'll check it out :)

I've spent the past 4 hours trying to install this on a live forum. I received this error (among several):

I should have asked this earlier but if I already have a quick reply mod installed, do I need to remove it before installing this portal? I noticed there's a quick reply included with it.
