there are many phpbb3 styles that look almost identical to that one. why not pick one of those and then tweak whatever you want.

so, find an up to date style that does this ( most of that is forum related and not style related) and use it instead.

man, there are hundreds of up to date phpbb3 styles out there. try google.

phpbb2 styles are completely different from phpbb3 styles so convering is no small process.

There is a mod that does this for phpbb3.
Search and you will find.

Code: Select all

ok, I misread your post.

having announcements/stickies etc. in their own "box" has nothing to do with the style
and the FI black style does not have anything like that so I am unsure what the two have in common.

anyway, find a 3.0.6 compatible style that you like. then install that MOD he linked you to.

installing MODs is very easy. you can either use Automod or do it manually.

manually is better because automod does not seem to work properly some of the time.

you downlod the zip file, you unzip it to your computer. you open the xml install file in your browser.

you read and follow the instructions.

you will need a ftp program to upload/download the phpbb files.

you will need a real text editor like notepad++ or editpad lite to open/edit the phpbb files.

If the MOD requires any database work, you will need to be able to access your database or run the included database update file ( if there is one ).

pretty simple but daunting for the first time.

always work from backups /copies and you can not possibly screw it up beyone a quick repair.


luck
