First - Thank you for the VERY easy to use style! I'm loving it. Thank you!

I was wondering though, about the main search bar... I know I'm probably missing it, but how do you change the green glow color around it?

I'm wanting to give it a more blue look to it, to suite the rest of the color changes I've done, but for some reason, I can't find it. :(

Thank you. :D

Uhh, nice blackblue-style. Think about releasing your version to the community.

You could change the color here: colours.css:687

Code: Select all

.search-header {
    box-shadow: 0 0 10px #007F00;
}
The question is: How did i found out?

I marked the search-input-field with the inspektor-tool from the browser and then changed the choosen element from inside to the outside. After every step i searched for the information. See the screenshot to understand what i mean.

THANK YOU! And thank you for telling me how you found it!! I've learned so much about styles thanks to you!!! (Before doing this, everything was just the pre-done styles and I usually hard a hard time just changing my logo.... :oops: And nothing was ever really the way I wanted and personal, ya know?! But thanks to you, I know how to tweak a style more and make it my own!! THANK YOU!!!)

Thanks for complimenting my color choices!! :D As for releasing to the community... Uhm... I really didn't change that much... Is it worth it? When you take the extensions off I added, all it really is, is just a blue version of your theme? (With purple links... Hey, I like purple rofl)

See:

I didn't even change everything... I liked the stuff I left as it was. It really is your style though... If you want to release it you can. You can get it here: https://www.mediafire.com/?n36id2pcdrosy32

If you can't get it via mediafire, lemme know (That site hates me for downloading...) I can put it up for ddl and send you a link via pm.

ps... you know I gotta say, it looks so weird seeing that stripped down version... I have a bg and everything, this is what my forum actually looks like (without my logo :x I moved it to remake the basic version and now I can't find it!!! :evil: )

But that's with the background extension (I was lazy), moonphase, and collapsible forums...Seems odd without the bg as I used the bg to help me decide on the colors lmao. Oh well, off to find where I moved my logo too. Not enough coffee yet... :oops:

I'am happy, that i could help you. I know how hard it is to change the style without the tools because i have done it over years for myself. In the past i read the code of the full html-output to find out which css-element i should change. And i had been as happy as you when someone wrote how to do it fast and easy. :)

Thank you for the download. My style is only a black version of prosilver. You have the same right to release your version as i had to release mine. Not everybody likes to change the colors of the style. If you really dont like to release it by yourself i will think about it, but i could not promise.

Your background-image does a lot to the charm of your style, thats right. I doesn't like my own style without background-image now, just kidding. Sad to hear you lost your logo while preparing for download, i'am sorry about this.

I see a "house elf" in your forum. My Username is "night elf" in german. Greetings from elf to elf. :)

I tried doing that once, and honestly, I gave up. Looked like crap by the time I was even half done with it rofl. So glad you showed us this trick!!! Makes it soooooooo nice!

As for my coloring... Maaaaaaan that's still not done. I should've tweaked a few more things. When posting the colors are... a bit weird. Not bad, but off, so I'm not done with it lmao. As for as releasing it goes, it shouldn't be released as-is, imo... But if you want to tweak it or whatever, I don't care. :) As for me releasing it... Uhm... I doubt it. If someone starts asking me questions, I probably couldn't explain anything. :shock: I'm lucky I got this far!! rofl

Awww I still like your style with no-bg. :P As for my logo, I found it. :) Of course I would make it too easy by doing something simple... like oh say just dropping it on my desktop. And since it was 'too' easy, of course I couldn't find it. :roll:

As for house elf -- I always create 2 accts when working on a forum. In case I somehow get locked out. (It's happened... a lot. -_- ) House Elf is my go to for actual mantience stuff. :) Fitting, don't you think? ;) Love the night elf name!! Elven greetings all around!! :mrgreen:

Glad to read that.

Most of the answers for your style will already be answered in this support-forum. You just need to provide the link or ask me for help if not - no problem.
