  • Changing color of a specific forum

    How do I change the color of a specific forum to get it more noticed?

    Example: www.disneyworldpics.com

    I want to change the color of the Free Video Forum to be highlighted.

    Any way to do this?

    Admin CP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> « » -> Forum Home Templates -> forumhome_forumbit_level2_post

    For example, add the red code (the free video forum is forumid 54):

    Code:
    <tr align="center">
    	<td class="alt2"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0" id="forum_statusicon_$forum[forumid]" /></td>
    	<td class="alt1Active" align="$stylevar[left]" id="f$forum[forumid]">
    		<div>
    			<a <if condition="$forum[forumid] == 54">style="color: red;"</if> href="forumdisplay.php?$session[sessionurl]f=$forum[forumid]"><strong>$forum[title]</strong></a>
    			<if condition="$show['browsers']"><span class="smallfont">(<phrase 1="$forum[browsers]">$vbphrase[x_viewing]</phrase>)</span></if>
    		</div>
    		<if condition="$show['forumdescription']"><div class="smallfont">$forum[description]</div></if>
    		<if condition="$show['forumsubscription']"><div class="smallfont"><strong><a href="subscription.php?$session[sessionurl]do=removesubscription&amp;f=$forum[forumid]" rel="nofollow">$vbphrase[unsubscribe_from_this_forum]</a></strong></div></if>
    		<if condition="$show['subforums']"><div class="smallfont" style="margin-top:$stylevar[cellpadding]px"><strong>$vbphrase[subforums]</strong>: $forum[subforums]</div></if>
    	</td>
    	<td class="alt2" nowrap="nowrap">$forum[lastpostinfo]</td>
    	<td class="alt1">$forum[threadcount]</td>
    	<td class="alt2">$forum[replycount]</td>
    	<if condition="$vboptions['showmoderatorcolumn']">
    	<td class="alt1"><div class="smallfont">$forum[moderators]&nbsp;</div></td>
    	</if>
    </tr>
    $childforumbits

      In that example, could you not just use HTML in the FORUM MANAGER

        Yes you can, that was a good catch. I over complicate things and forget about the basics too. I am sure that is what just happen here.

          I don't recommend using HTML markup in the forum title. It can cause problems in some places where the forum name is referenced. HTML markup is best added to the templates.

            You could use HTML in the description, however.

              I tried html code of

              <color="red"> with ending tag

              in the forum manager description and it did not work. What am I doing wrong?

                Code:
                <span style="color: red;">TITLE HERE</span>
