Solved Hello, I need a little help with the forum design. (Body Page)

Post by Sumi Kitamura on May 26th 2017, 11:13 am

I've noticed people are able to change the forum design itself. Not the background image, but the actual body of the page itself. Making the corners round or changing the entire body to look like a tree or shield.
The default format is just square. I want to be able to add an image of my own to change that structure.
I have had forums in the passed and HTML, CCS I'm still fairly new too, I can edit such but still have no clue how to create it. I just can't find a topic or subject regarding this issue.
I appreciate the help and patience with me as well.

Okay thank you.

If I'm understanding correctly all you want to do is change the bacjgrojnd image of the middle part, yes? Not the body behind.

New Design and old design
---

Like that for example ^^

(sorry for the slow reply I had to create that)
But to where you can make an image for the body of the forum.

Edit: like instead of just a square, I can make a whole new design such as a shield, or a plank with cool splits in it. Or a tree trunk with rigidity edges just basically create a whole new body of the layout. Or if I can't change the structure itself, at the most create an PNG image with 100% transparent edges or whatever design suites my website.

Should I change the forum to phpbb3?



It made the background solid black with a while triangle at the bottom of the body.

I'm just creating this forum so, no one on it but me atm. I'm not too entirely worried at the moment.

Not entirely, I used that as an example of what I'm looking for.

I'm trying to find the forum that did it, it's been a while they might have closed it or disabled it.
But basically re-shaping the body of the forum in a way, or a way to upload my own shape. Like... for example lets say I created a picture that looked like.... there so many various things I'd have planned. I just don't know if there is a way I can change the body of the forum.
Lets use a smart phone, JUST for an example (I know it's redundant, but just an example). I wanted my forum to look like it's on the screen of a smart phone. Soooo I'd want my forum to basically look like the phone is on the background image and I created a border of the smart phone with a rounded edges. So there would be basically a border on the body of the forum.

Or for another example of something else I'd like to accomplish.
I want the body of the forum to be layed out on a photo (if it's impossible to alter the dimensions of the body), with transparent edges so I can make it look like... it's a crinkly, partially ripped up pirate map that you're reading off of.



^^^ like that for example. The blue part is just the background image, the map is the body of the forum itself.

I think that could be fairly easily accomplished by just setting background image of the container (in my case, it's <div id="wrap"></div>) to whatever you want, and have fixed width, and height that matches the dimensions of the image.

Although you will have to take care of container having proper dimensions across any PC, or devices used to access the site.

Could you provide URL of your forum, please?

Hi,

We can make the background of the bodyline transparent, add a new div class and id to the bodyline in the index_body template. Creating a background image that will be transformed as a Diamond shape using CSS3. I'll be creating shortly a test forum to help you make this achievable.



Attention!
- Please provide your forum URL at all times.
- When the issue is solved, please mark it as solved.
