  • Modifying Category Headers

    The current Category Headers are simply not how I would like them to appear therefor I took a minute to modify the css via css_additional.css under the CSS Templates in the Style Manager.

    Before:

    After:

    Add this code to additional.css to make this change:
    Code:
    .category-header {
    height:2px !important;
    background:transparent !important;
    border-top: 1px solid #c4c4c4 !important;
    }
    I'm still on a learning curve like many others so if there is a set of new stylevars I have overlooked please let me know .

    The category headers (in your first image) would look better if there was an actual category name in it

    What you've done in your second image is simply remove the background colour, so when you do add a category name, it'll blend in with the rest of the site.

        Your site has an issue then...

        Level 1 forums which are not categories would have a blank category header above them. This is by design.

        Level 1 forums which are categories would have their name in the category header.

            That's because fresh out of the box it ships with a forum and no categories

            And you haven't removed the category you've just removed the background colour

              Actually no, Beta 12 and 13 both for me had "Forum" and each time it was selected in options as "no" for:

              Act as Channel (Will act as category if no)
              And I know, I chose to change the css not completely hide it .

              Regardless my issue was from:
              Error: invalid_node_id thrown in /home/*removed*/public_html/vB5/core/vb/library/node.php on line 653
