Title: Change your layout (board colours)
Post by VoodooChildInWland on Apr 14th, 2008 at 6:03pm
Between the features we have is that we can make templates and the user can use the one who likes it. We have two templates, currently in the board are 5 templates but some of them are almost identical

To change the layout go to your profile and find this



I set (my fault, not Gazza's LOL) the template I made to look like the old board as the default template, it looks like this



I already changed the default template as the original YaBB default template



So if you want a different layout select it from the list available at your "profile"

Apparently the layout I made trying to appear like the old board is not nice for some of you, remember you can reset the layout in your profile, all who registered today during work hours are seeing the black background template, remember you can change it

Just testing out my first post here. I went with the "Rocks Off Final" but not too sure if I like the green. I guess I can personalize that later.

O.K. Let's see how everything comes up once this is posted... Thanks.

Oh, I guess that we can't hide from Who's Online anymore?  ;)

Change is Good... I believe this is a positive omen for me to make my Western escape!  :)

Hey Voo - is there a less "puke" green you can set up for the header and footer or are you pretty limited in choice of color palates?

The name green I like, the header/footer green I don't . . .

If you could make the black background with yellow lettering an option (like the old board) that would be great. I can't read the text against the black backgrounds on this board, so I'm just using the default blue and white - it's kind of bland though. A happy medium would be nice.  :)

Okay how do you type in colors in this white space? I got some of the rest down (I think) but would like to type in different
colors. Do I have to change anything to do this?  Also I hope the Unholy Trinity will add more emoticons in the near future.
That Shut Up one cracks me up!!

Okay I clicked the "reply" word and all it does is give me this screen. When I put  my curser in one of the color boxes and click it
and try to typy in that particular color it just gives a bunch of words and etc with the word "color" in it. I was hoping to see
the color I selected show  in my text.  I am sorry, guess I am still a little confused.  8-) :-[ :) ;) :charliesgoodtonite

Okay, G it looks like that only a lot shorter. What do I do next? I have a Mac OS X Tiger system. Wonder if that  makes any
difference? :) 8-)

The OS doesn't make any difference, as the transition of the code is done by this website.

to type in colour, choose one,  then there will be 2 pairs of brackets and code, just type inbetween them.
voila


Code (][color=#993300):
your text goes here[/color]

I chose red, and did what you said, type in the color (red) in between them and it does no do anything. Help :willya

Title: Re: Change your layout (board colours)
Post by Sioux on Apr 25th, 2008 at 6:25pm
Ok.....put in what words you want, then click on a color . There are two brackets that have the word "color" in them. Put the cursor between those brackets so that you have "color" on either side of what you are going to type. Then, just type your words inbetween the brackets.

Like this....Now I am green.  :)

You must NOT type in the word of the color, you know? For example (red)...just go on the field with the colors and click with a left click on the red field and just type in

try it again!!! [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

Ok, you see the two brackets with the word "color" in each one? You just put your cursor between the brackets and start to type....

Then you will be typing in color... :)

Hi I am not typing in color. I am typing in the usual colors of deep black and snow white.
Now what?

Title: Re: Change your layout (board colours)
Post by GhostofBrianJones on Apr 25th, 2008 at 11:20pm
Well I be  shot I am typing in Red!! How come it does not show what color you are typing after you put your cursors in between
the brackets after selecting the color you want? It only shows up after you have finished typing, right? :booze :charliesgoodtonite

Title: Re: Change your layout (board colours)
Post by Sioux on Apr 26th, 2008 at 12:21am
Yes! I should have said that.... ::) The color only shows up when you actually post your reply. 8-)

if you click the + button on Live Preview at the top left you can actually see the colour you're typing.
