posticon Question about Purple Passions (smackdown5)


Dear reader,

Please check my testforum: http://com5.runboard.com/btestforum6

Question: Is it possible to change the background color. I'm talking about the purple part. I've doing several things to change it but nothing worked.

Any wisdom here would be nice.

Dutch Greetings,
Mike

Re: Question about Purple Passions (smackdown5)


hello,

It is possible to change the background color if you want. Although please note the images (specificially the rounded corner images have some of that purple which from your forum you can already see.

However if you still want to change the background color there are a few things which you will have to change.

Firstly in the css area.
Control Panel > Manage Board > Edit Colors / Layout of your baord > Click 'custom style sheet (CSS)'

You need to change the class BODY
It is the first one

body {background-color: #000000}

You will also need to change some other stuff.

On the Edit Colors / Layout of your baord page Which you get to from Control Panel > Manage Board > Edit Colors / Layout of your baord

You have background image which is white. You dont need that to have a white background.

The background color which on that page you currently have set to #000000. Change that to whatever background color you want.

There are also some parts in the custom html which need to be changed. Althought it appears you have already changed them to white.

Hope that helps. If you require any further help please post or here or pm me.

BTW. Having looked at issues with customizing this skin I may do a new version which is easier for people to customize. Dunno when I'll get time to do it tho.

Smackdown5,

Thanks for ur quick reply! emoticon
As u can see I'm a step further, I changed the background color and changed header, middle and footer imageborder color too.

What I would like to know is how to use a background Image. Cause when I do use one, I get this effect: http://com5.runboard.com/btestforum6. What setting do I need to change to remove the blue background color.

Any pointing in the right direction is welcome emoticon

Greetings,
MikeImage

^ to explain mooses answer a bit further.

To change those you need to go to
Control panel > manage board > edit colors / layout of your board > custom html header/footer

In the header and footer you need to REMOVE
in the header 2x instances and in the footer 1x instance of background-color: #BBBAEC;

Many thanks for ur quick and clear reply, we did it emoticon The 'test' forum is deleted and we've copied the 'Purple Passions' template to our existing runboard forum, check it out: http://com4.runboard.com/bdollardawgs

We're still busy adding and changing some things but we made a start emoticon . We've got a lot more questions to ask but I'll ask them in the right sections emoticon

Again many thanks for helping me out on this matter. Any suggestions or comments are welcome!

Greetings from The Netherlands,
Mike
