    (X)HTML / CSS

    Most of the templates are very specific to their location. With one mild diviation, and thats the forumhome. The forumhome template set is used on the index.php and the forumdisplay page to a certain extent.

    All of the rest of the templates and grouping sets are generally used where there name suggestions.

    The showthread template's and its group are all used on the showthread page. The postbit group, is just for how posts are displayed and used in several places.

    There are no files to edit, all of your templating needs are done though the AdminCP>

        Not exactly, there are some howtos on how to do specific things, but nothing more complex than that. there can enver really be a tutorial on how to edit vB templates because how I would do it and how you might do it are two totally differnt concepts etc.
