In progress Is This Possible Without Changing Theme?

Post by kvance on October 14th 2014, 1:48 am

Is it possible to change the color of the tables and widgets on a forum via something under the display or does that have to be done via another completely different theme?

An example of what I mean would be this I have a contact staff box on my forum. The part that has contact staff has a reg "highlight" behind it. Would it be possible to turn things like that another color?

In short can I take something like this



Then make the red another color. Or is that only done via another template? I'm asking as my forum wants to do something for breast cancer awareness and I was curious if it was possible to make that parts of the forum another color. Or if I have to make a whole new theme and such?

Hello kvance,

You can modify the image in pics management :
Administration Panel > Display > Pics management > Advanced

or change it by CSS :
Display > Colors > CSS stylesheet

Example rule :
Code:
td.cat, td.catBottom, td.catHead, td.catLeft, td.catRight, td.catSides {
  background:#F06;
  box-shadow:0 8px 6px rgba(255,255,255, 0.2) inset, 0 -8px 6px rgba(0,0,0, 0.2) inset;
}

Hmm I'll try having a look as ideally what I wanna do is turn the whole forum pink but I wasn't sure how I'd go about changing the color of things like this



Or any area with that and if it was how to do so. If it's possible via css editing I'll have to look into that. I assume I'd have to change it for every area I'd want it changed for. Or would there be a way to have the parts linked in the image changed for the whole site easily?

Changing it by CSS should be simple. Go to Administration Panel > Display > Colors > CSS stylesheet

All you need to do is paste this somewhere in the sheet :
Code:
td.cat, td.catBottom, td.catHead, td.catLeft, td.catRight, td.catSides, th {
  background:#F06;
  box-shadow:0 8px 6px rgba(255,255,255, 0.2) inset, 0 -8px 6px rgba(0,0,0, 0.2) inset;
}
( To make it simple, add it to the very top )

#F06 is the color of the header. ( pink ) You can use this to choose colors : http://colorpicker.com/

Okay so I tried it out and it only worked for certain parts of the forum.

All the widgets, the who's online one and the chatbox, it didn't color this part



Nor did it color any other headers like that when I would go to another part of my forum.

Is there a way to color that part too where every part, no matter what part of the forum I go on, would be pink?

Better yet is there a way to just change the whole forum colors of everything. The buttons at the top, the part I linked, the part you showed to pink? Like is there a code I could use to change the whole forum for just that set time. Or would I have to do several individual codes for like the buttons at the the top "hoome, search, etc etc" and then everything else

Giving this a small bump to reask something

Is there a way to just change the whole forum colors of everything. The buttons at the top, the part I linked, the part you showed to pink? Like is there a code I could use to change the whole forum for just that set time. Or would I have to do several individual codes for like the buttons at the the top "home, search, etc etc" and then everything else?

You can manage your colors here :
Administration Panel > Display > Colors

For your navbar, you can change those images here :
Administration Panel > Display > Pics management > Advanced > General / Explore

So there's no way to change the colors of these headers and such? As I've looked in my colors management and all I've seen is text color. Not how to change the color of things like this. Dunno if these are tables or something



Or this.



If it is possible is it a simple code to understand. If it's too much work to do then I can just close this topic and not worry about it.

This is the CSS code that you have:
Code:
th {
    background-image: url('http://hitsk.in/t/16/74/89/i_back_title.png');
}

It should be one or more of these :
