Post I'd Appreciate Your Help With A Few Things... 
 
First of all, forgive me if I am posting in the wrong forum, I looked but wasn't sure where I should post.

Thank you in advance if you can help me figure these out, if not, thanks anyway for giving me the chance to ask here.

Your style is very cool, thanks for making it!

So, I need to modify the looks of the style so it fits with my site's main page a little more, or blend better.

This is my main site www.healthyconsciouslifestyle.com - these are the forums - www.healthyconsciouslifestyle.com/forums

I want to be able to change the background color, fix the header area and change the color of the forum headers, see my problem is I am very new at this, I can follow instructions but I don't know where things are like most of the people at phpbb forums do.  I've looked around in some of the files but I don't want to mess things up so I'm here to ask you instead.  

This graphic kinda explains what I need.

This should get you started on a background image?

But as a newbie to phpBB3 - It may be better for you to ask your questions at phpbb.com.

I have been for over a month with no luck, that's why I came here since it's where the theme was made.  I worked with vBulletin before, I know how to edit files etc if I have the instructions to follow.

Thank you for the link!

I would probably be able to figure out how to change the background to a graphic if I knew which file to edit and which line to change.  Your link doesn't really tell me those things

Yes it does - It's in the *.css file under the body tag?

So all you need to do is add an image URL to the body tag as depicted in the wc3 example.

There should be plenty of examples in the .css as to how current image paths are added to the current theme.

As for removing the search block in the header (Although I thought that it could be turned off in the ACP?)

Find this code in overall_header.html and remove it.

Code: [Download] [Hide] [Select]
        <!-- IF S_DISPLAY_SEARCH and not S_IN_SEARCH -->
            <div id="search-box">
                <form action="{U_SEARCH}" method="get" id="search">
                <fieldset>
                    <input name="keywords" id="keywords" type="text" maxlength="128" title="{L_SEARCH_KEYWORDS}" class="inputbox search" value="<!-- IF SEARCH_WORDS-->{SEARCH_WORDS}<!-- ELSE -->{L_SEARCH_MINI}<!-- ENDIF -->" onclick="if(this.value=='{LA_SEARCH_MINI}')this.value='';" onblur="if(this.value=='')this.value='{LA_SEARCH_MINI}';" />
                    <input class="button2" value="{L_SEARCH}" type="submit" /><br />
                    <a href="{U_SEARCH}" title="{L_SEARCH_ADV_EXPLAIN}">{L_SEARCH_ADV}</a> {S_SEARCH_HIDDEN_FIELDS}
                </fieldset>
                </form>
            </div>
        <!-- ENDIF -->

I'll leave it up messed  up so you can see what I am getting, here's the link:

www.healthyconsciouslifestyle.com/forums

here is the code:

html, body {
   color: #536482;
   background-color: #000000;
   background-image:url("{T_THEME_PATH}/images/hclbg.jpg");
   background-repeat:repeat-y;

so why is it only changing the left side?

Another problem I am finding is that after I edit the colors.css file, the New Post, New Reply buttons disappear and I only have a text line option, I am not sure why that's  happening

This line tells the image to ONLY repeat in the vertical position.

background-repeat:repeat-y;

Just remove the whole line.

And I'm not about to drip-feed solutions to your problems. You're a Web-master and you are expected to at least learn the basics of html and css yourself. And a good place to start is wc3 schools.

Other than that you would probably need to pay someone to either teach you or do it for you.

and that's the reason it's impossible to ask anywhere for help, cause everyone has a horrible attitude towards helping fellow human beings.  Thanks for your time.

I don't think that anyone has a horrible attitude and are usually quite prepared to help others who first try to help themselves by at least making the effort to learn something in their own time before asking questions about something that they know completely nothing about.

Most, if not all helpers object to spending hours doing someone else's homework for them, and I adopt that same attitude.

Someone else may want to help - That's up to them.

I guess there are some things left to answer...

For "the green from my graphic"
Take a look at this
Code: [Download] [Hide] [Select]
.tbl-h-l
{
  background-color: transparent;
  background-image: url("styles/frozen_phoenix/theme/images/blocks/tbl_h_l.gif");
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  background-attachment: scroll;
  background-position: left bottom;
  background-clip: border-box;
  background-origin: padding-box;
  background-size: auto auto;
  padding-left: 27px;
}


You have to change this button tbl_h_l.gif and also tbl_h_r.gif.

You can do it by your own or you can create the colors you want with this tool.
http://www.icyphoenix.com/styles/co...=frozen_phoenix

Play with it and download it after that. Use the graphics you would like to use.

Thank you Steffen, I appreciate your time and politeness.

As for you mort, enough of your words already, I am not interested in what you have to say or lecture.
