Post subject: Background - All white areas?

Hello everyone!
First let me say I'm not like a pro or something. Actually
this is the reason I chose for phpbb2. I don't need to know
a lot about CSS to get this stuff. Basic html knowledge and
some recognision is luckily usually enough.
I'm also new on this forum, so I may have overlooked some
information. If I did, I'm sorry and please just tell me so. icon_redface.gif

Now to get on-topic.

I just started a new forum for a new event and I'm customizing
it now. Then I stumbled upon a problem. When I wanted to change
the color of Table Cell Color 2 (all white areas), it literally changed
ALL white areas. So even the boxes you write in and all that. This
is not what I wanted, I just wanted to change the background,
because a white background doesn't fit with the website it goes
with AT ALL.
Now I tried going into the css file itself and make changements there,
with some help of my father and sister (since I don't know a lot about
css), but it didn't show the changes on my forum.
How can I just change the background part and not ALL white areas?

Thank you in advance! icon_biggrin.gif

I know double posting/bumping is probably a bad thing,
but it's been almost 2 weeks now. I'm wondering if there's
really nobody with an answer, because I'm really in a pinch.
I need this forum to be up and going before januari. icon_sad.gif

Hi,

I think some reading on the subject will be a good start for you.

phpBB Template Design Guide is a very good source.

Have a good read of every chapter and than have another look at your problem.

For the default subSilver template, edited through the control panel, your description is true.

IF YOU'RE USING THIS DEFAULT.........

the value entered through the admin panel is substituted in the CSS definitions in templates/subSilver/overall_header.tpl

That's where you would want to change the CSS settings. I believe you're going to want to change {T_TD_COLOR2} to whatever value you want - for example - blazing, eye-rending red #FF0000. Red is actually a good color to test with since it will stand out on subSilver template.

Jakob Persson's template guide that dogs and things linked is also a good reference.

Thank you! icon_biggrin.gif

It's late in the evening today and I'm tired from the week,
but I'll definitely look into it and tell you all how it went.
If it all goes well, the topic can be closed, but please keep it
open for now just in case icon_smile.gif

Thank you again! icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif

With the addon Firbug to browser Firefox you can change the code on the fly and see the results directly on the homepage. To get a permanent change you must change the code of the files though. Might be worth to test.
