Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: Creating Styles for the Forums

  1. #1

    Creating Styles for the Forums

    Hey everyone,
    A few have asked me for information on how to create new styles for the forums. All you need to do is modify the header and footer colors and I will take care of the body colors, etc. I have included the default blue style for you to mess around with:


    Feel free to add background patterns, etc. as long as the file size for either the header or footer doesn't exceed 15k. Feel free to modify the logo, buttons, etc.

    I'll try to include as many styles you all upload with some deliberation among the moderators so that the selection is more fair.

    Please PM me once you have finished your style. I do not check this thread often.


    Great, now even Kirupa is { facebooking | twittering }

    Hehe, no problem I usually have these updates done within a day or so, but as Nali mentioned a few posts above, I've been able to make any major changes to the site or forums.

    hope you like it... it's kinda like the blue style, but a bit darker

    Asphalt, have you considered adding some tiny graphics or something in the colors to make it a little more unique. The past few styles that were simple color changes were rejected because they resembled all the other styles. Use your creativity - you are a design/art/video guy
