    Question Would this be possible to do? If so, how do i do it? CSS Coding... help?

    Hey, i recently installed my new vBulletin forum on my website (http://www.blubbz.com/forum/) and i need some help with styling the "thread bar"...

    Keep reading please!
    Thanks.


    Its hard to describe what i mean so i found another website that has the same thing that i want, and its also a vBulletin forum, just an older version.

    Link to how i want it to look:
    http://suprbay.org/


    My forum:
    http://www.blubbz.com/forum/


    And no, im not trying to copy the forum, even tho it looks alot like it :/.

    As you can see the suprbay.org forum has different colors on eatch thread..

    like on this picture:
    http://img147.imageshack.us/img147/1628/suprbayif7.png

    Do you see what i mean?

    Do you know how to do this?

    On the vBulletin CSS there is two different CSS classes that i can change for the thread look....

    if i use these settings it will look like this:


    Oh god i really hope YOU can help me with this!

    Regards, Nike

    It is harder with CSS, but this should work edit this.
    .thead {
    -x-system-font:none;
    background:#FFFFFF none repeat scroll 0 0;
    color:#A5A5A5;
    font-family:tahoma,verdana,geneva,lucida,'lucida grande',arial,helvetica,sans-serif;
    font-size:11px;
    font-size-adjust:none;
    font-stretch:normal;
    font-style:normal;
    font-variant:normal;
    font-weight:bold;
    line-height:normal;
    }
    the forums that you want gray should have background:#C0C0C0, i hope this is what you wanted

    i have absolutley no idea of what seamonkey is but i just installed it and it looks like a really old version of internet explorer, its pretty cool.

    ''maybe your should download seamonkey, that way you can edit the HTML ''

    how can i do that now?

    and if i edit the site with seamonkey, will i edit it for everyone? Or will only i see the changes?

    Thnx for the awesome tip! the program is great.

    i can't edit the forum with it tho :/ I can edit it, but when i try to publish it it asks for the current webpage i want to save it to... like "index.html" or something... but i cant enter that becouse the forum reads information from several different php files I was connected correctly and so on, this is my only prob.


    Any ideas?
