PHPBB Skinning: Issue with colors on sides of phpbb forum

  • # April 27, 2009 at 3:28 pm

    I am in the process of skinning my phpbb forum to look like my wordpress theme. I have part of it working. The middle section looks like the wordpress them. However on each side of the forum there is a white background that appears to be overlaying on top of the wordpress background.

    I have modified the colours.css to get rid of the white background here:

    html, body {
    color: #536482;
    background-color: #;
    }

    If I remove the #FFFFFF in firebug, it works. However, when I make the change to colours.css file and upload it to my site it does not. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

    Edit: I forgot to add a link to the forum. Here it is. Hopefully that will help.

    Hi,

    I don’t think I totally understand what’s wrong. It doesn’t look like you have assigned a background image to HTML, which is what is creating the white space.

    If you want it to look like your blog, try applying this to HTML: (obviously, update the image url)

    background:#656565 url(images/bgbody.jpg) repeat-x scroll left top;

    Good Question, although horribly off topic:

    Search Google for CSS Tutorials and you’ll find lots of sites that can help you learn.

    when I use phpbb I make changes to css throw the admin section (which from waht I understand has all css in it) instead of going to specific css files in the folder and opening with editor.
    Also, after uploading css file did you delete everything in CHACHE folder?

    hope this was of help
