Several questions regarding a PHPB33 forum

Post by yjosephh on April 6th 2011, 3:51 am


First of all, I have a question regarding the "Latest Posts" widget in the forums. Here's how mine look like right now.

How can you change the titles of the posts so they're bold/italicized or perhaps another font style? Maybe size too. Is there a specific CSS code for this? Is there is, please let me know! Also, how can you bold or change up the usernames too? I don't like them being the same as the date etc.

Second of all, there's something I want to know about the forum itself.

Look at the first circled object. It's the LATEST UPDATES Category header for my forum. How is it possible to perhaps change the font style of that or to bold it/italicize it, whatever? Is there a CSS code for that?

The second circled object is the LAST POSTS section. It's been bothering me lately, but is there a way I could bold or italicize the titles of the posts that appear under the LAST POSTS section? Perhaps maybe even change the font style? It's really hard to spot the difference between the date and the title of the post so I want to change it.

Thirdly, how do you change the times of the forum to: Tuesday, April 5th, 2010 7:10 pm? I tried going on the Administration Panel and I did change it to that format but it never changed itself on the forums. Is there another way I have to do this?

Last but not least, I have a problem with the colored usernames. My username is always purple when I post something because I created the forum and I'm an administrator, but all my other administrators don't have a colored username. Why is that? How can I fix this? But yeah, please, let me know how to change it without having to effect the color of other links around the forum.

That's it for now! Thank you very much, and your help would be very much appreciated!

Hi, for the latest posts widget, if you want to change the font style of the links, which is entirely possible, then please bear in mind that ALL links on the forum will be affected as well. I can make them italic for you by simply adding this code to your CSS code:

a:link {
    font-style: italic;
    text-decoration: none;

For the username, since it's a link, the above code will affect it and make it italic. You can only make it bold if you make a group for colourise the username. This can be done by making an auto-subscribe group with a post requirement of 0:

For the category header, please add this to your CSS code:

.table-title, .table-title h2 {
    display: inline;
    font-size: 1em;
    font-style: italic;

That will also make it italic. For the username colour, make sure that the administration group is either opened or closed and also that "Color Group Members" is checked so that the colour will show up. Smile
