Changing colour

I am updating to a Yabb 2.5.2 forum but would some advice on how to change one of the colours on a template. I am using a downloaded 'camo' template but have selected the Yabb 25 template for posts (as seen below). I would like to change the colour of the 'bar' which contains the posters name as at present it isn't very easy to read. Which part of the coding would I need to change to do this, if at all possible.



Thanks
Matt

Hi,

It doesn't look like the 'userinfo' selector was added to that template - try adding this to your CSS file:

Code (CSS)
Select All
.userinfo {
    background-color: your-color-value;
}

Hi Matt i will have to look at it to find that out for you also as you are updating to Yabb 2.5.2 there are some more edits you need to make as well in the 'camo' stylesheet=.css you will need to add
Code (CSS)
Select All
.green {
display:none;
} 


to it also you may need to add
Code (CSS)
Select All
.u, .under {
text-decoration:underline;
} 



at the same time.

also was it the YaBB 2.5.2 from here http://www.yabbforum.com/community/YaBB.pl?num=1360184081 as this one is the most updated version of YaBB 2.5.2  Wink

Edited:
Derek got it but also remember to add the css info above.

Thanks I think I've managed to get it sorted with your help  Wink I downloaded the 2.5.2 directly from the link on the main website. I have added those bits of code so hopefully it should work fine now. I'll let you know if I find anything other issues  Grin

One thing I have just noticed is that the board collapsing doesn't work so all are constantly expanded. Is there a code to add to fix this?

goto admin > Forum Controls > Categories > then click all checkbox next to the Categories you want to edit edit then click go on the mext page check all (Allow Collapse?) then save.

Just checked that and it is set to allow them all to collapse but still the collapse buttons don't work. It seems as though there is a piece of coding missing but I'm no expert
