Search bar + Homepage background

Post by RustedKnight on December 16th 2010, 5:32 pm

Really sorry, I keep bugging you guys Sad I'm getting there though.

Question 1. Search Bar. I already have a fully functional search button in my toolbar, but I have a seperate search on a new bar, how can I remove this.
Picture below shows functional search button, and red circle shows search tool I want to remove.



-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Question 2. Background Colour.

My forum background is bright white, i'd like to change it to be a little easier on the eyes. Problem area marked in red.
I presume this is in the CSS? Forum is running PHbb3.





Many thanks, and i'm sorry for taking up your time again.

2. Add this code to your css.

Code:
#wrap{
background-color: #ff0000;
}

Edit: add this for search-box at nav bar

Code:
#page-header #search-box {
display: none;
}

Thank you, that worked great!

But it has turned up an unexpected problem, only minor.



The corners of my homepage are now in the wrong colour. The colour code I need is #CCDEE3. please help me one last time?

Yes I know that but all you can do is to color those corners in Photoshop the same color as your background.

As far as I can tell, they are added via CSS not in the image itself

The images have square edges.

They are images so go here A-CP => Display => Pictures and Colors => Pics management => Advanced Mode >> General / explore scroll all the way down and see them there.


EDIT:
Also one more thing you need to do just go to A-CP => Display => Pictures and Colors >> Colors scroll down to Table header Forum line color: and apply the color #CCDEE3 there so you not goon see that white background.

checked that, they have square edges. the rounded white edges are definately added by some form of html or css.

This is frustrating :/

There is a code to hide those corners but idk the code.

Also one more thing you need to do just go to A-CP => Display => Pictures and Colors >> Colors scroll down to Table header Forum line color: and apply the color #CCDEE3 there so you not goon see that white background.

Thanks, your advice helped me change a lot.

I still have the white corners but they are barely visable now. The forum looks much better. Thank you very much!
