  • What Is The Name Of This Part of the Forum?

    On VB4 it is my Body Background. But on VB5 the Body Background is the forum background. What is this area called on VB5? Please forgive me for what i assume is a very trivial question. But i honestly want to learn this stuff so i dont have to pay someone big bucks to help me.

    The area in red boxes.

    You would want to change the wrapper_background style variable.

        Hi i was wondering if i could get help on this part as well. I paid to have one of these guys do this for me but the hours just keep adding up. And at $50 and hour and a few boxes and borders im still very incomplete. Pretty upset in fact. So i have to figure this out on my own. The red lines are the bars i need to change to blue. They are not blue yet. I used apple preview to color them in and show this guy but he never got around to it.

        Id also like to place the black borders that i have colored in there as well. Thanks for the help.

              The ones on the right would be covered with the module_* style variables. The blue background area is the module_header set and the other is the module_content set.

              The blue forum categories on the left are controlled by the primary_module_subheader_* style variables.

              For gridlines and borders in the forum list see this topic: https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/foru...to-your-forums

                  Strange. Its not there. The Blue on the right bars is different than the blue on the left. Im just trying to make the blue on the primary module subheader match the other modules. But its not set as any color of blue. Is it in code somewhere?

                    Then they have overwritten it in CSS instead of using the style variables.

                        If you go to styles -> Search in Templates and search for the blue color code, you should be able to find where they made the change. Most likely in css_additional.css. You can edit or delete the color tag and its attribute after the colon.

                            Could someone point me in the direction of changing out the grey color in the red box? Cheers

                              Maybe the Firefox Developer Browser could be useful for you... there you can click on any area of a website and it shows you all html and css code for it, so its quite easy to find what you need and copy it to your css_additional.css.
