  • How to custom build a style?

    When people go about massively overhaling VB (for example do they start from scratch and just code within the templates, or do they use programs? or do they build on existing templates?

    I want to dabble in it so any advise would be great

    Yes they use :
    1 - they build on existing templates that make change in these templates:
    2. forumhome_forumbit_level1_nopost
    3. forumhome_forumbit_level2_post
    4. forumhome_forumbit_level1_post
    5. forumhome_lastpostby
    6. forumhome_moderator

    2 - install this plugin:
    Cyb - Sub-Forum Manager.

      In general most designer would sketch out a design in photoshop of the basic elements and colour schemes then move onto coding them.

      If you're new its a go idea to have a firm grasp of HTML and CSS first and looking at other skins is a great way to pick up on some tips and tricks.

      Overall the best advice I can give you is to dive in and experiment.

      Best of luck
