You might well laugh, at least your reply made me Laugh too. :lol:

I don't like giving up, but I don't know what else to try?

I tell you what, I'd like the border around the board to be the same colour as you made the background to the banner.
How? with any luck I'll do one thing right.

Ok...go edit the theme in ACP for prosilver and find this:

Code: Select all

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

Code: Select all

.forabg {
	background-color: #32CD32;
}
Have you tried to view the site on a different computer? If your changes aren't even saving then something is up with your PC.

Morning David,

Well it worked, the bottom half is now green but the top bit is still blue, I guess there's another code that needs changing somwhere, but which one and where?

While I was there I noticed this, background-position: center center;

Why two center's? I would have thought background-position: center; would have done? (like I'm an expert!) :lol:

How come nobody thought to put in any comments into the style sheets, so that it would be possible to edit the syles yourself instead of filling up forums with questions, how do I change this, how do I change that etc, etc?

Maybe one day someone will draw up a complete list of what does what in the styles then we can all play to our hearts content.

You left this part there:

Code: Select all

background-image: url("{T_THEME_PATH}/images/bg_list.gif");
That needs to be removed.

I assume the styles team at phpBB just assumed that if anyone wanted to change styles they would either know how to trace classes or would ask at the forum. Adding a bunch of notes would also make the stylesheets a bit cluttered to tell you the truth. But a guide would be nice. One might exist somewhere...I know one exists for all of the functions in phpBB.

Thanks David,

That's done it :)

I guess your right about the too many comments part but a nice guide/article on the basic changes that can be made would be useful.

I have another question but I will start a new topic, as I think this one was answered about three replys ago!
