      you'd need to create a new template set and modify that particular forum and select the new template set to override user's options and then in edit the new template set's header template

          I'll give it a shot:

          1. create a new template set with a new name
          (the "add template set" link is located at the very bottom of the admin control panel)

          Control Panel > Templates > Add Template Set

          2. create a new style
          (the "add style" link is only a few links up from the "add template set" link). "User Selectable" means that people registering will be able to choose from your style selection.

          Control Panel > Styles > Add

          3. when making the new Style, choose the new template set for it.

          4. modify the "Header" section of the new Style.

          5. You will probably want to see the new style in action, so modify one of your forums so it uses the new style.

          ControlPanel > Forums and Moderators > Modify

          6. Open the forum and alter to taste.

          or

          If you already have a seperate style made, simply change which template it uses.

          Control Panel > Styles > Modify > Style > Properties

            I want to "test" my new style, but don't want any site visitors to be able to view it (except admins) unitl it's ready to go. So if I go to CP, set default style to my 'new" one, do I set the "overide user custom styles" option is set to NO?

              An easy way to work around the privacy issues of testing things is to make a new forum, and answer yes to the Private Forum option. =)
