theme design help

Postby dung0beetle » Sat Nov 06, 2010 3:11 am

I'm designing a theme based on prosilver, but I'm not exactly sure about where some of the images are located in the theme when it is displayed on the actual forum page. (did that make sense?)
The images in particular that I don't know where they are displayed are:
bg_menu, bg_menu_rtl, bg_tabs1, bg_tabs2, and gradient.

I am clueless about coding, but I know how to change font colors, background colors, and change image info in a css file. I am just confused about some of these images because the theme images are just simple gradients.

Here's a pic of the type of thing that I'm trying to figure out.

If you feel that you need to explain it to me like you would a little kid, please do, I won't take offense. :lol:

Here is a .psd file of my template so far if you want to see what I'm trying to do. dbHORNET_template.psd
It's a black and yellow theme with chrome and glass. I'm not sure that I like the chrome buttons though.

your looking for prosilver/theme/images/bg_header.gif and bg_list.gif
The bottom part of the "General Forums" section will be a css color located in prosilver/theme/colours.css
it is #0076B1

Thank you for clearing that up for me.

Edit:
I tried to purge the cache after uploading the changes, and got this error:

Code: Select all
General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]

Out of memory (Needed 2095128 bytes) [5]

SQL

SELECT a.user_id, a.forum_id, r.auth_option_id, r.auth_setting, r.auth_option_id, ao.auth_option FROM phpbb_acl_users a, phpbb_acl_roles_data r, phpbb_acl_options ao WHERE a.auth_role_id = r.role_id AND r.auth_option_id = ao.auth_option_id AND ao.auth_option LIKE 'm\\_%' ORDER BY a.forum_id, ao.auth_option

Is this a host issue since it is a sql error?

that is possible, but more likely just a cache glitch. If the error continues, manually empty your forum root/cache folder of all files but index.html and .htaccess
