  • [vB4] sidebar_background - help changing block colour

    I tried changing the style var sidebar_background when doing so it alters the colour of both the background of my forum titles, my CMS blocks and my member profile blocks. I noticed here on vbulletin.com (I'm usuing Blue and White style) the background of the CMS blocks are blue, the forum titles are blue but the member's profile blocks are white. How do I go about replicating this on my forum? I would like the member's profile blocks background a different colour than then CMS blocks and forum title backgrounds.

    Warm Regards,

    Marc

    When I change that stylevar on my default 4.1.10 site, it only changes the background of the outer border of the side blocks (the part where the items are listed stays white), the background of the outer part of the CMS widgets and the the profile blocks and tabs on the members page.

    It seems to do the exact same thing here on vb.com - all of those items are a kinda light gray.

    If you want to leave the members page alone, you could write some custom css like:
    HTML Code:
    #sidebar_container.member_summary {background-color: white;}
    dd.userprof_moduleinactive {background-color: white;}

      This is what vB looks like to me, the main page cms block background is blue and the member profile background is a light grey:

      On my vB site, they both have a carbon fibre look:

      When I change style var 'sidebar_background' it changes the home page CMS as well as the member profile page:

      I would like the member profile page to look like vbulletin.com and my CMS colours to stay the same.
      How do I got about changing just the member profile side block (circled in red below) to a lighter colour and not affect the rest of the site?

        You are not looking at the default style on vbulletin.com. You are looking at a modified style. The default style is called "vB 4.0 Default Style"

          Yes, I'm using the Blue and White style. How would I go about modifying the colour of just the member profile side block and not affecting other area's of the site? Changing the sidebar_background style var changes too many areas.

            I posted the CSS for that in my first reply - https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/show...=1#post2265822

              I'm not sure where to put that. Could you explain in more detail? I appreciate your advice.

                As I say in my signature, thow it into additional.css if you don't know where else to put it. And if that doesn't work, you will need to post a link to a profile on your site that we may view to see the problem.

                  this was helpful for me...Full "fix" is here: http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBIV-9325

                  But this....in 4.1.11 was MORE helpful.....and after weeks of searching...i stumbled upon it by accident.
