    Don't have to modify a template...

    Put the gradient image in your /images folder. Then go to Modify --> Styles, and open the fonts/colors/etc on the style set. Jump down to Main Colors and in Category Strip Background Color and/or Table Heading Background Color, and put in:

    #bbbbbb" background="images/imagename.gif"

    'imagename' being your gradient image.

    the value #bbbbbb" before 'background' is the trick (doesn't necessarily have to be bbbbbb) but without a value there it won't work.

    Good luck

      Did this little trick and it works great. The problem I have now is with the VBportal as the front end. It seems it can't read this code to pull it over to the main page modules. Is there a way to do this and still keep the message board graphics intact?

        Don't know... You would have to ask on the vBPortal support site. Sounds like a bug in their software.

          you can edit the forumhome templates directly, adding the background="{imagesfolder}/something" to each cat td. That's what I did.

            this trick don't work with opera 6.0, in this opera you must remove the backgroundcolor - tag, otherwise you have in opera only a colored title...

              Hey,

              I used this trick and it works. But it makes my linkcolour black, and I cannot change it. Also the link hover colour is black. Nomather what colour I enter in the cp. It's always black. What can I do about that?

                you can also try and put in an absolute path to the gradiant image. This way your front-end (which is probably in a different folder) can find the image.

                eg: www.mysite.com/forum/images/gradiant.jpg
