Dear Yaf's,

i'm trying to figure out how to change my yaf theme's colors but I don't want to use standard's.

I need to create a personalized color.
Is it possible? How ? How much customizable ? In what ways? :)

Best regards
The easiest way to start modifying a custom theme is to duplicate a theme's folder into a new one, then copy and rename the theme's .XML file in the themes folder - then edit that XML file to reference the new folder name. Then restart YAF and choose the new theme you wish to work with.

After that, it's all about the CSS and images stored in the new theme folder -- grab yourself a copy of firebug and install it into your browser of choice. You can see which CSS rules apply where and make the changes you want in the theme's .CSS file in the folder you duplicated to...

Additionally, you can set YAF to allow your users the ability to choose their own theme, then edit your profile and choose the theme you are working with -- this will make 'your account' use the theme you are editing without disturbing the current theme for your users -- Once you are happy with it, disable the user's theme choice, and assign the theme you want to your forums.
If you can't find it using the forum search, try my signature link -- searches this site using Google: Google is my Friend
