what an amazing thread! I've been changing colours and stuff on my posilver themes for a while now, as I enjoy making the themes! I'm currently making a new theme, but have got stuck!

I have chnaged the "catrgories" backgrounds on the index page, but wgen I click on a category, and the page comes up,the "topic backgrounds" are still as per original prosilver colours. How do I change the actual category bg (seen on this page >>>>> http://www.civic5.com/phpbb3/viewforum.php?f=2 ) I got the hover to work, but the actual un-hovered bg is still the same???

Also, Ive seen forums where there is an individual bg-gradient gif used, How do I go about this? Ive tired making a smaller (height wise) bg gif, but it didnt work?

Appreciate the help chaps!

Dave

The color is coming from

in colours.css

Code: Select all

.bg1    { background-color: #ECF3F7; }
.bg2    { background-color: #e1ebf2;  }
if you change these colours the post colours my also be affected
if you want to only change the color when viewing a category then you will have to edit the template change the css class values to your own and define them in css.
what do you mean by individual bg-gradient ?

Individual as in each category/topic looks like it has its own image. Looks a bit like individual glass buttons, if that makes sense? :D Looked really neat! I changed the colours you listed, and refreshed/dumped the cache etc but nothing changes?

Since i noticed a lot of topics about how to recolour prosilver , i though a topic like this would be useful.
Before we begin we turn the cache of , so it will prevent that you always must refresh your theme or prune your cache.
It can be done very easily, just go to your Administration Control Panel -> Load settings ( you will find that link on the left bottom side of the begin page of your Administration Control Panel index page ) -> Recompile stale style components: -> and set that option to Yes.

.....

Lets begin :-)
First we go to the stylesheet directory, the will be the ground work 8-)
The directory /styles/prosilver/theme/ are heading for, you will notice the next files:
  • bidi.css
  • buttons.css
  • colours.css
  • common.css
  • content.css
  • cp.css
  • forms.css
  • index.htm
  • large.css
  • links.css
  • medium.css
  • normal.css
  • print.css
  • stylesheet.css
  • theme.cfg
  • tweaks.css
1) change the white background

Let change the withe background :D
Open: styles/prosilver/theme/colours.css
....
Enjoy phpBB :lol:

First of all, I would like to thank you for taking the time to post all of this :D

However, the first question that popped into my mind was ... what program are you using to make these changes?

Are you doing this from the Admin control panel, or are you loading these from the online directories themselves?

Thanks for clarifying!

Jack

Amendment: The actual theme I am using is "Khaki Black," based on the Prosilver core style, so (per Steve's request), I have re-posted my specific problem in the "Khaki-Black" support forum here.

Thanks again for any help!

Thank you for the prompt response, but that did not fix it. I have refreshed my theme in ACP and purged cache after making those changes. It is only showing the hover effect every other row if that helps any. You can see what is going on here:

Any other ideas? Thanks.

Doh. I had changed the wrong common.css the first time. Had my theme and prosilver both open while comparing. Anyways, it is fixed now. Thank you very much for the assistance.

Great thread. Much gratitude for it!

I have a question that I feel you may be able to help me out with.

I changed the colors for the navbar and header links. I have the Thank You mod and Minichat mods installed, but their link colors did not change in the navbar. I changed the others from blue to white and did refresh in the ACP.

I looked in the colours.css file and couldnt find anything related to those links.

Is there somewhere I am not looking?

Thanks in advance.
