    Yes, it can be done, but the showthread page is laid out differently than most of the others, so it takes some special tweaking, which I haven't yet spent the time to figure out.

    One thing that messes you up is that the header template opens a table/row/cell, and the main templates have to close those.

    We haven't launched yet, but I'll send a URL for my dev site in a private message.

      You mean something like this?

      You need to go through some of the places and remove the table close / reopen that the default vB template has.

        In Showthread Template


        <!-- End content area table (CREATED IN HEADER!!) -->   
        Remove it.

        <!-- restart content table from header -->
        <table cellpadding="10" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="{tablewidth}" bgcolor="{pagebgcolor}" align="center">
        Remove it and save the template.

          OH HELP PLEASE

          I see the example web page above...
          I noticed there is a border around the entire LARGE table.
          Which template is this in?

          I have tried several and also modified the header...
          It does not work. I even tried making a table that eveything fit into but that bombed too.I have looked at the CSS coding. I just can't seem to find it anywhere. Please help.

            Try the header and footer.

            Open a simple table

            AT THE TOP of the header or where ever you want your tables to begin.
            <table width="100%">
            <tr><td width="25%">
            <td width="75%">
            at the top of the footer]
            Its fairly simple .... in about 3 or 4 places you need to remove the table begin / end that vbulletin forces.. other than that its not rocket science.

              Tried that but -

              I tried that but because of some background graphics it would not show up...mmm

              I tried most every table. Then- while trying to do some other tweeking I found the forumhome template. Adding another table before the header variable and closing it after the footer variable made it work just great.

              THANKS for your help!
              I am always appreciative of the help that we get from this site from users and owners alike.
