CSS Tutorial for your forums

CSS Tutorial for your forums



Quick CSS tutorial to make your forum look smarter.

Throughout the forum CSS has been referred to, to make text larger, smaller and to
align text and tables however it can also be used to clean and hide
certain parts of the forum. Relatively easy to use, CSS only hides the
forum sections to make it look cleaner rather than deleting sections
just in case you change your mind later.

1. Log into your forum and access the “Administrator Panel
2. Select “Display
3. Select “Colors
4. You should now be able to select the “CSS Style Sheet” tab

! The sheet will be blank if you have not used this before!


5. Once you selected the relevant text from below simply add the text to this section and press “Submit”, this will be reflected on your forum immediately.

When it comes to sprucing up your forum you can alter the look of each
section to make it look a little different. Thanks to Jalokims tutorial
we now know how forumotion make their four section thread.

Topics tagged under dd6900 on The forum of the forums 4j2r85

However what if you don’t want four sections and you want to make the one section look good........?
That can be done with the following procedure.

1. Log into your forum and access the “Administrator Panel
2. Select “General
3. Select  “Categories & Forums
4. You need to first of all create a new “Category” by pressing Topics tagged under dd6900 on The forum of the forums Ajouter and selecting “Category” from the drop down.
5. You don’t need to add any descriptions, just a name. Select to create a “Forum
6. For the name enter the following “Topics tagged under dd6900 on The forum of the forums 29yd77”, this will create a blank space to keep it in keeping with your forum.
7. Select  Topics tagged under dd6900 on The forum of the forums 121110 it should then look white in color like this   Topics tagged under dd6900 on The forum of the forums 12110
8. Now add the Following code
Code:

width="100%">  


[table border="0" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="5"][tr]    [td]
width="31"> <img>
src="http://i37.tinypic.com/v7fwow.png">
[/td]   [td width="284"] Title/Link[url=http://help.forumotion.com/]
href="">[/url][url=http://help.forumotion.com/]
style="font-weight: bold; color: Red;" href="">
style="text-decoration:
underline;">[/url]

size="1"> Forum description Goes
here
[/td]    [td]
width="31"> <img>
src="http://i33.tinypic.com/29yd77.png">
[/td]   [td width="284"] <img>
src="http://i33.tinypic.com/29yd77.png">[url=http://help.forumotion.com/][/url]
size="1">
[/td]  [/tr] [/table]


9. Now press the  Topics tagged under dd6900 on The forum of the forums 12110
again and you will now see the table with a picture and text to the
right, edit the text and title, turn the title into a link. Press on
the picture and press delete replacing with your own picture
10. Once done “Save
11. Press “Display
12. Select “Structure & Hierarchy
13. Select “Split categories On Index: Medium” and “Save" again
This will now give you the following effect, similar to the four
section except it gives you a new style if you only have the one forum.
