Hey guys,

I've just uploaded my forum and am trying to customize the colors. One colour I can't find though. I changed all the color HEX's in the Style Management Area, but they don't affect the outcome. Does anyone know how hits background is named or which colour I have to change? Thnx!

Look into the templates folder the hint may be there

I tried to register there many times. It keeps giving errors and after three times I have to wait before I can try again :evil:

After 2 hours I quit and posted my problem here

Check your cookie settings. you have probably blocked cookies from their site and thats causeing the problem

you may also have a corrupt cookie. delete your cookies or search for and delete their specific cookie

as for the colour problem look into the templates folder
locate the template you are using (subsilver) and then the tpl file for the area of interest

the colour may be hard coded into that

good luck

my understanding of the color fields in the admin area don't necessarily change the board. I always edit the css file directly and then my changes take no problem. I would recommend trying that.

Thnx for the help! I'm a programming noob so I won't risk those adjustments. The minor changes will do. But thnx anyway :D

I just recently installed phpBB also!!! What a great software package!

I think that that part of the forum is actually a image. You can scroll through your image files for your template that your using and try to find the color. Then change it. If it doesn't work, reverse the process.

you can view my forum at:

Your forum looks nice so far! Good work.
