Hey, I searched the forums and couldn't find anything new dealing with new code to put in style.css to modify the header bar color and other areas for 2.6. Can someone show me an example so I can add it to my style.css? That would be awesome thanks.

The forum is using the plugin related CSS declarations like:

plugin
pluginTitle
pluginHeader
pluginRow1
pluginRow
etc

Best to look at the templates to see the CSS styles.

Thanks, but I couldn't find any CSS example template(s) anywhere... which is why I've been searching the forums. Just a small bit I added to style.css from the instructions I read.

What you can do is download some of the other themes that are already coded to get an example. Look at the demo site and then download the themes that you see the changes in and then look at the CSS file to compare them to your current theme. You can also download a color picker that would help in picking the right hex color to help make that transition.

Thanks Michael... are those themes in the link configured with Forum CSS tags in style.css? I'll try to download one and see if it is.

The themes that have customized forums in them do have the changes within the CSS in the archives

Is there an easy way to tell which ones have customized forums?

It sounds like you want to change the color of a few things in Forum 2.6. All the styles are defined in the styles.css file in your theme directory (/layout/radangel-new/style.css in your case).

Edit that file, you will find about half way down (give or take) definitions for the plugins:

Text Formatted Code

/* Default Plugin CSS Declarations */
/* Recommended CSS to be used by Plugin Authors - allows easier site themeing */

.plugin {
  color:#000000;
  background-color:#EFEFEF;
  font-weight:normal;
  border:1px solid #CCCCCC;
}
.plugin th {
  color:#000000;
  background-color:#B7C1DC;
  padding:5px;
  text-align:left;
}
.plugin tr {
  vertical-align:top;
}
.plugin td {
  padding:2px 5px 2px 5px;
}
.pluginBG {
  color:#FEFEFE;
  background-color:#7398BA;
}
 


These styles are what controls the forum's look and feel (colors). So, if you want to change the blue title bar with topics, posts and Last Post on it, you would change this style:

Text Formatted Code

.pluginCellTitle (line 706)
{
  color: #ffffff;
  font-weight: bold;
  background-color: #7398ba;
  padding-top: 5px;
  padding-right: 5px;
  padding-bottom: 5px;
  padding-left: 5px;
}
 


Notice the background-color: setting, that is what you want to change.

You can look through the template files located in layout/layout/radangel-new/forum/ to see what other styles are used. Blaine referenced the list in an earlier post, so if you'll modify those in your style.css you should be in business.

Good Luck,
Mark

Wow, thanks a lot... that's exactly what I wanted.
