Solved Is there an overview of CSS selectors for theme versions like phpbb2/3?

Post by Beckea on July 17th 2017, 7:58 pm

Hello,

I am new to Forumotion and not familiar with the CSS selectors being used here - I know: body, #wrap, and looked at the basic CSS code, but most are not familiar. I know CSS code but wanted to make sure I know what is being used here before changing anything. I only interested in the appearance/or design part of it for coding. I know I could go out and see basic CSS code but many places have their own. But if I could find a good resource that will help me with Phpbb2/3 - I would appreciate the redirect to resources that may help, thank you in advance.

I almost never worked with phpBB2 or BB3 so I don't really know the selectors. If you want to style your forum with CSS, I would advice you to use phpBB3 or punBB because there selectors are much better than the other 2 forum versions. phpBB2 has very few selectors, so it can be tough to select elements that you want to style.
If something has no class or id and you need it to have, you can add one via the templates. Good luck! Wink

Are you sure you are using #phpBB2 ?

I restored back to one skin I have been using - it is punBB so I will still with that for now until I am more familiar with the host here. But also saw that it was recommended above.
