Customising ProSilver

Postby uk_martin » Thu May 14, 2009 11:08 pm

As everything seems to work in ProSilver, I'd like to see if it can be edited, in not too dissimilar way as the theme on this site has been done. My "minds eye" visualisation is attached. It will need a few modifications with borders with rounded corners, etc, table background images, etc, and hopefully the secret to rotating images in the header and footer.

I'll be happy to do the spanner work myself if a few pointers and steers along the way can be given over which template / config / css file controls which bit of the job. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Martin

The first step would be to add the borders. I can help with that, but you would need to grab some transparent borders as you are having a black background. I am sure they are kicking around on phpbb.com (maybe in prosilver SE thread) It would then just be a case of making prosilver fixed width with borders and changing the colours within colours.css.

Thanks for the reply

prosilver_se stuff downloaded and ready to deploy lol

"contrib/border.psd" looks like fun. Good job everyone has Photoshop eh? I guess that's where I need to make the yellow bit of the outer border is it? OK, I'll get onto that, and look forward to seeing what is is that I need to do with them later.

Cheers

Martin

I would actually say, if you are not copying the mod edits over to it, just use prosilver standard and mod that with the borders and then work on the colours. You can get prosilver looking like SE very easily.

Yeah, that was pretty much my intention, the only thing though is to find out which file does what. And how. I suspect overall header and overall footer files are a good place to start. Are there any other files that need tweaking?

OK, back on track after a million and one distractions.

OK, now to do a bit of sorting out loose ends. The first ones that spring to mind are:

1) The Welcome block in the portal needs sorting out. I want all the blocks in the Portal to resemble the style of the Latest Images Gallery Block and also the Latest Global Announcements Block.

2) The icon for the Gallery (the one that looks like an eye) somehow has disappeared. What is the path to where that icon sits and what is needed to direct the header to it?

3) What is it that controls the column widths in the Portal?

Finally, which one of the lots of CSS files is the one that determines the page background colour?

Thanks

Martin

For 1) Have you got a link or screens for an example?

For 2) My one is based in the style/theme/images/icon_gallery.gif

For 3) I believe there is a setting with the portal ACP though that can also be changed in the file, may have to look into what file it is if you have no luck with the ACP setting.

Lastly, the colours are set in theme/colours.css

OK, making progress..."Welcome Block" issue sorted out... and I've found out how to get all the blocks looking the way that I want them to...now just to go through them all to re-style them lol.

Could do with finding that column width control though...

Yeah, sorry, but "real life" stuff gets in the way...double glazing, decorating, gardens etc etc...not to mention following the team around the country on their away travels...

But anyway, back on track again...'til I get derailed again lol

To change box widths, have a look in portal settings..
