Post Background Color Help....

Post Background Color Help:

Hi All;

Been pecking away at my forum ever so gradually getting it where I want, yet I've hit a wall as to one problem. That being, I'd like to make my post "only" background color like a style I have run across yet sadly cannot get the creator to respond to my emails.

My site is here (this a particular thread so you'll see what I mean)... http://78sentai.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=72 ........What I'm trying to do is use a "semi-transparent" png file (a small color chip) as the background color resulting in a similar effect that you see here .... http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/axeattack?phpbb=3.0.0 ...that page showing topics not posts. Unfortunately however the maker of the example forum really altered the files to the point they're noting similar to prosilver any longer....So I can't see how I could make this change based on his examples.

Thanks for any help on how to use a png for a post background (and yes will have 2 shades).

The following in stylesheet.css is incorrect:

Code: Select all

.bg1	background-image: url('styles/prosilver/theme/images/bg1.png');
.bg2	background-image: url('styles/prosilver/theme/images/bg2.png');
.bg3	background-image: url('styles/prosilver/theme/images/bg3.png');
Should be:

Code: Select all

.bg1	{ background-image: url('{T_THEME_PATH}/images/bg1.png');}
.bg2	{ background-image: url('{T_THEME_PATH}/images/bg2.png');}
.bg3	{ background-image: url('{T_THEME_PATH}/images/bg3.png');}

Thank you very much!

However, if you would please look here...... http://78sentai.org/forum/viewtopic.php ... 1&f=1&t=72 , though it works on the forum/yopic list page, it is not for the actual posts.....You can see however where there is not an "online" banner, a square of the color chip......Yet it does not fill the rest of the post. Any idea's?

Thanks again,

K2
