Shift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page.Good afternoon,

The forum’s layout is controlled by a CSS, so within certain limits you can change the appearance.

At the risk of being accused of self promotion, try

http://forums.iansmithcse.co.uk

I have made an extension to my forum so you can call it with

http://forums.iansmithcse.co.uk/?SkinId=0

http://forums.iansmithcse.co.uk/?SkinId=1

http://forums.iansmithcse.co.uk/?SkinId=2

and get different skins.

However I am not a graphic artist, so the fact that colour schemes may by awful is not relevant to the principle! Shift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page.

There is a Webwiz user Scotty32 that has a web site with some forum extensions as well.

You may also find

of interest.

Bye

Ian

My skills are not to good so please forgive the next question.
Do I assume there is no way to easily edit the defaults skin ?Confused

Regards, Gordon

Good evening,

No, no and no, and just to be sure no, if you just want one skin then it is very easy.

Once you get a forum you will find a folder called … WebWiz\css_styles\default which has three files, one for users on a desktop, (default_style.css), one for mobile users (mobile_default_style.css) and one you will never touch (printer_style.css)

If you are new to style sheets then

http://www.w3schools.com/

will explain style sheets.

If it would help I can send you the style sheets that I use, but I can't attach them to a post.

You can then open them in an editor and see how small changes make the difference. However I am going home now, so it would be tomorrow.

Bye

Ian
