  • Template Mod Question For Jake ! (or anybody who knows)

    I want to put a space (so that it appears as two tables, with the background color between) where this red line is...

    How do I do this? Is it even possible?

    All of my templates are default, except I did apply the template mod explained by Steve M. in THIS thread, to put the table head under the category line...

    Here is my modified FORUMHOME template:

    Code:
    $stylevar[htmldoctype]
    <html dir="$stylevar[textdirection]" lang="$stylevar[languagecode]">
    <head>
    <!-- no cache headers -->
    <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" />
    <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="-1" />
    <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache" />
    <!-- end no cache headers -->
    <title><phrase 1="$vboptions[bbtitle]">$vbphrase[x_powered_by_vbulletin]</phrase></title>
    $headinclude
    </head>
    <body>
    $header
    $navbar
    <!-- main -->
    <table class="tborder" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="$stylevar[cellspacing]" border="0" width="100%" align="center">
    <thead>
    <if condition="$show['guest']">
    <!-- guest welcome message -->
    <tr>
    <td class="tcat" colspan="<if condition="$vboptions['showmoderatorcolumn']">6<else />5</if>"><phrase 1="$vboptions[bbtitle]">$vbphrase[welcome_to_the_x]</phrase></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td class="alt1" colspan="<if condition="$vboptions['showmoderatorcolumn']">6<else />5</if>">
    <phrase 1="faq.php?$session[sessionurl]" 2="register.php?$session[sessionurl]">$vbphrase[first_visit_message]</phrase>
    </td>
    </tr>
    <!-- / guest welcome message -->
    </if>
    </thead>
    $forumbits
    <tbody>
    <tr>

      Actually I tried to apply the mod shown in ^ that ^ thread. But it didn't work because of the other mod that I have applied to move the table head down. That is why I was hoping that somebody could maybe help me do it......

        You posted your FORUMHOME template twice instead of posting your forumhome_forumbit_level1_nopost template. In anycase, in order to make it look like individual tables, you will have to actually make it individual tables.

        In FORUMHOME, replace
        Code:
        $forumbits
        with
        Code:
        </table>
        <br />
        $forumbits
        <table class="tborder" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="$stylevar[cellspacing]" border="0" width="100%" align="center">
        , then put
        Code:
        <if condition="THIS_SCRIPT=='index'">
        <table class="tborder" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="$stylevar[cellspacing]" border="0" width="100%" align="center">
        </if>
        at the top of your forumhome_forumbit_level1_post and forumhome_forumbit_level1_nopost templates, and put the following at the bottom:
        Code:
        <if condition="THIS_SCRIPT=='index'">
        </table>
        <br />
        </if>

          Corrected. Thanks for pointing that out.

          I'll give it a try and report back. I think a lot of people would like to set it up like this. I searched the archives and couldn't find anything...

            It worked! Thanks a lot, I figured I would never get this ... and I wouldn't have without your help!

            My only last question is how do I adjust the space between the two independent tables now that make up the forums...

            See the attached image...

              You can add <br />s below the one you added to the bottom of the forumbit templates to add more space.
