Designing prosilver. Changing colours.css but not working?

Post by gorepitdotnet »

Last thread now, I promise!

I have been trying to edit the colours for the prosilver theme. Im not sure why it isn't working, but I have edited the themes/colours.css and its not showing up. I have refreshed my page etc... but its still showing the default colours. How do I change this?

After editing a CSS file you have to refresh your Theme on the Styles/Themes page and then F5 your webbrowser

Thanks, it still just seems exactly the same as before though. Do I have to edit anything else except the colours.css sheet? Thats all I have changed so far, and the colours are much different - dark.

That depends on what you are trying to change. Some of the colors are background images.

Im trying to change everything lol. I want the prosilver theme as blacks and greys. The colours I have changed to are #cc000 for headings #ffffff for text and #000000 for the backgrounds but nothing has changed. Not even the text area boxes.

What steps are you taking to edit the colours.css file? What editor are you using?

I was editing it using the cPanel file manager. I just found out that it would be reallllly hard to created a dark theme to how I want it so I have just given up on the idea. Oh well, back to subsilver2 I guess.

What I really want to do now for the subsilver2 theme is to resize it to the same width as http://www.zombieforum.net and have that rectangluar curved border around the whole content. Im not sure how to do that though. Does anyone know?
