I'm also using the clean theme for Geeklog and I'm using the same forum.
But I have noticed that this forum looks beter than the one I'm using. Is there something changed? And who can I have the same looks for my site, because I like this more.

modify the styles for the forum. Depending on what version of the forum plugin your using it will either be located in your Theme style.ss or forumstyle.css.

Ok, you will need to do the following!

in your
forum/themefiles
dir there is a file called additional-forum.css, open it and copy all its content to your theme css style.

In your case this should be located in
geeklog/public_html/layout/clean/ directory.


You will notice the most change by editing the following lines!

Text Formatted Code
.forumclass1           { text-align:left; background-color: #BFBFBF; }
.forumclass2           { text-align:left; background-color: #CCCCCC; }
.forumclass3           { text-align:left; background-color: #EFEFEF; }
.forumclass4           { text-align:left; background-color: #CCCCCC; }


 


Note you can customise the forum to suit your needs completely, if the way Blaine has worked the css into the templates doesn't suit you, just edit the forum templates once you are comfortable with the different classes for the forum styles!

This site and my site are running the 2.3Beta code with modified template files. I will be including these modified templates with the final release.

I posted a story about this a couple weeks ago as an update after I made the changes but there was not much comment as this being better or worse Rolling Eyes

As Dazzy posted, it's just a matter of editing the HTML in the templates to change the layout and or CSS assignments.
