  • Hard code changes

    Hello i've been reviewing how to change the styles of the forums via admincp but I still prefer to style the forums using Dreamweaver and not via admincp


    In phpbb if you want to edit the template you just edit overall_header.html, overall_footer.html etc. How about in vBulletin w/c files do you edit? Again I don't want to do it via admincp as it will take a lot of time reloading and refreshing and getting use to the user interface and all those bling bling process you do to see the changes you make.

    I want to change the overall design and location of elements. I also like to put absolute divs and layered divs as well, the divs are for my flash files like banners and menus. The width of the forums ( w/c I must add is liquid and extends 100% and man it looks crappy when viewed on a 25 inch lcd screen)

    I know this can be achieved by hardcoding the elements and customizing it on the css file.

    Anyone knows the files to edit please let me know you'll be a great help

    You have to do this via the Styles & Templates section of the Admin CP. Here is the online documentation for styles and templates:

    And here are color maps for vB in the online manual:

    And here is a tutorial:

      Ok tnx I have browse all the folders looking for "style template" files and it came to me that everything in vb is quite dynamic so the answer is "No you cannot hard code styles outside admincp..."

      Ill browse on those links
