  • Forum border (Again)

    i need help with my forum border
    i made a post here afew months ago that seemed to work pretty well
    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=101983

    but i want a new effect

    with my current forum http://www.euro-gamers.net/forums/
    the border is there but its not really visible and doesnt not cleary seperate the forum from the background

    i ran accross this site http://ntsc-uk.domino.org/
    that has a border that clearly seperates them
    it also adds the copyright message at the bottom into the main table

    can anyone tell me how i can make my border look like this

    ive tried to change the border options to 2px but i then get huge borders inside every table when i just want one on the outside

    thanks

    In the header template:

    Code:
    [color=red]<table class="tborder" style="border: 2px solid #0B198C;" width="$stylevar[outertablewidth]" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" align="center">
    <tr>
    <td align="top">[/color]
    
    <!-- logo -->
    <a name="top"></a>
    <table border="0" width="$stylevar[outertablewidth]" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" align="center">
    <tr>
    	<td align="$stylevar[left]"><a href="$vboptions[forumhome].php?$session[sessionurl]"><img src="$stylevar[titleimage]" border="0" alt="$vboptions[bbtitle]" /></a></td>
    	<td align="$stylevar[right]">
    		&nbsp;
    <!--
      NEW HEADER &amp; NAVBAR
      
      Now that the nav buttons are in the
      navbar template, you can stick whatever
      you like into this space.
    
      This makes it much easier for novice
      admins to customize their header
      template without affecting important
      navigation elements.
    -->
    	</td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    <!-- /logo -->
    
    <!-- content table -->
    $spacer_open
    
    $_phpinclude_output
    I added the style attribute, style="border: 2px solid #0B198C;", to set a 2px border for this table only. Change the color code, #0B198C, appropriately to change the color of the border.

    In the footer template:

    Code:
    <br />
    <div class="smallfont" align="center">$vbphrase[all_times_are_gmt_x_time_now_is_y]</div>
    <br />
    
    $spacer_close
    <!-- /content area table -->
    
    <form action="$vboptions[forumhome].php" method="get">
    	
    <table cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="$stylevar[outertablewidth]" class="page" align="center">
    <tr>
    	<if condition="$show['quickchooser']">
    		<td class="tfoot">
    			<select name="styleid" id="ressel" onchange="switch_styleid(this)">
    				<optgroup label="$vbphrase[quick_style_chooser]">
    					$quickchooserbits
    				</optgroup>
    			</select>
    		</td>
    	</if>
    	<td class="tfoot" align="$stylevar[right]">
    		<div class="smallfont">
    			<strong>
    				<if condition="$show['contactus']"><a href="$vboptions[contactuslink]">$vbphrase[contact_us]</a> -</if>
    				<a href="$vboptions[homeurl]">$vboptions[hometitle]</a> -

    				<a href="#top" onclick="self.scrollTo(0, 0); return false;">$vbphrase[top]</a>
    			</strong>
    		</div>
    	</td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    
    <br />

    	$vboptions[copyrighttext]
    	</div>
    </div>
    
    </form>
    
    [color=red]</td>
    </tr>
    </table>[/color]
    
    <if condition="$show['dst_correction']">
    <!-- auto DST correction code -->
    <form action="profile.php" method="post" name="dstform">
    	<input type="hidden" name="s" value="$session[sessionhash]" />
    	<input type="hidden" name="do" value="dst" />
    </form>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    <!--
    	var tzOffset = $bbuserinfo[timezoneoffset] + $bbuserinfo[dstonoff];
    	var utcOffset = new Date().getTimezoneOffset() / 60;
    	if (Math.abs(tzOffset + utcOffset) == 1)
    	{	// Dst offset is 1 so its changed
    		document.forms.dstform.submit();
    	}
    //-->
    </script>
    <!-- / auto DST correction code -->
    
    </if>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    <!--
    	// Main vBulletin Javascript Initialization
    	vBulletin_init();
    
    	// Initialize 'Active' Table Cells
    	//activecells_init();
    //-->
    </script>
    I moved the code farther down the template.

        Either revert the templates first or manually remove the old code additions. Then add the red code from my post.

            That area gets its background color from the table code that was added to the header. Go into your header template and add the red code to the code you already added:

            Code:
            <table class="tborder" style="border: 2px solid #0B198C; [color=red]background: #123456;[/color]" width="$stylevar[outertablewidth]" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" align="center">
            <tr>
            <td align="top">
            Change the color code appropriately. This will change the background color of that area.
