How I make a skin?

In progress How I make a skin?

Post by MCToast on December 5th 2013, 2:07 pm

I know the basic code languages, but I have no idea how to modify or create a skin with custom html, css and js.

I want to have a blank slate, like 0 customization and then a list of divs and styles on the html or more preferably, ability to change the html. I tried different CSS resets, but I got nothing.

So how I make a make a completely new skin, what I need to do so? Can I modify them all on the site or do I need a seperate program or can I just use notepad/dream weaver?

Go in administration panel -> Display -> Pictures & colors -> Colors -> CSS Stylesheet

you have option "Deactivate basic CSS" chose yes.

I'm sorry, but that didn't help at all.

How I can have access to HTML and add custom divs and where I can find a list of CSS elements already in the hmtl?

phpbb2 and punbb give you access to the templates.
Administration Panel > Display > Templates

If you're using phpbb3 or invision you will have to use javascript to manipulate your HTML DOM.

Unless you prefer going pure CSS Cool

You can make HTML pages here:
Administration Panel > Modules > HTML & JAVASCRIPT > HTML pages management > create a new HTML page

If you want to access the templates you need to be the founder of the forum. Template editing is only available for phpbb2 and punbb, if you're not using those versions you cannot modify the templates through the AP.

Ok thanks, can I be made as the founder or do I have to use his account to edit the HTML?

I searched some stuff and it seems like a lot of work, maybe I should just have access to his account all the times.

You will need to discuss that with the founder of the forum.
