Solved phpBB3 questions

Post by yjosephh on March 29th 2011, 6:35 am

I recently switched the phpBB3 from phpBB2, and although I like the phpBB3's portal better, I gotta admit the phpBB2 forum looks a better than the phpBB3 one.

One of the problems is that for some reason in the phpBB3 forum, there are no categories; all the forums are just listed out without organization. I would like it to be like the phpBB2 forum, where all the categories are clearly shown along with the forums under it.

Another problem is the font of the title of the forums. They're in Times New Roman and it looks awful; I cannot find a way to change the title of the forums in the Forums section. Here's an example:

The titles look extremely odd and if there was a way to change that, I would appreciate it. The first problem can be visible in that picture as well; the General Discussions and Updates/Announcements parts should be separate but no separation can be seen.

That's pretty much it. If you guys could supply some answers to these questions it would be great! Thank you very much!

Here is the CSS code to change the forum titles' font:

Code:
a.forumtitle {
    font-family: Arial;
}
a.forumtitle:active {
    font-family: Arial;
}

Of course, you can have different fonts to Arial but you can only choose from a list of fonts. These are:

Arial
Comic Sans MS
Georgia
Tahoma
Verdana
Times New Roman (I believe that's your current font)
Trebuchet MS
Lucida Grande
Helvetica

Smile

Since this thread appears to be solved, I will lock this thread and mark it as solved.
