Open styles/prosilver/theme/colours.css

search:

Code: Select all

.forabg {
	background-color: #0076b1;
	background-image: url("{T_THEME_PATH}/images/bg_list.gif");
}

.forumbg {
	background-color: #12A3EB;
	background-image: url("{T_THEME_PATH}/images/bg_header.gif");
}
and change the background-color to the colour that you like.

Aha i see.You didn't have changed your bg_list.gif and bg_header.gif image on the : prosilver/theme/images/ directory.
You can do the next thing.
Edit the images with photoshop to get the right colour. :)

Re: Change color (giving up, for now)

Post by spiritofamerica »

Worked for several days and finally had to give up on changing colors. There are just too many ins and outs. However, I suspect there are some techies out there who could figure out or maybe even have, already, how to change colors (not hit or miss). Maybe, when the time is right and any bugs are worked out, the files (with instructions) could be made available to the "mere mortals" in grey (which I prefer) and other popular colors. The program is fine, however. Cheers.

would it be better to change the color of the GIFs in Photoshop or Fireworks? I am using the CS4 versions.

Have you refreshed your theme - ACP => Styles => Themes?

Has anyone figured out how to make this work yet?

I changed the colors in styles/prosilver/theme/colours.css but it still doesn't work. And yes I refreshed the cache. But the colors are still the same.

Also, the bg_list.gif image file is just a colored line and doesn't change the theme colors.

Well I dont have a tute per se, but read my sig for a nifty tip. This allows you to change what you want, but not want to don't need to and keep mistakes at a minimum.

have you looked at the styles available? there is just about any color combination you can imagine already done for prosilver.

also there is colorize it so that you can just move slide bars around until you get what you want.
( I have never been able to figure out how to make it work but others have ).

however, the bottom line is that for prosilver, all of the colors and images are in the colours.css file

you make whatever changes you want to that file and refresh the style components and you are done. if done correctly , it works every time.

spend some time checking out the menu at the top of this page. there is an amazing amount of information about anything you could possibly imagine about phpbb there.
pay particular attention to the knowledge base.

luck,
robert
