ok, i'm almost all set.. i didn't have by old stylesheet backed up, so i had to create a new one. i almost have it looking the way i want it to (editing the default.css manually), but there are 2 stylesheet settings i need to change, but don't know how:
1 - use an image for the page (body) background.
2 - change the border color of the table in the showphoto.php screen, underneath the picture, which lists all the details (poster, views, rating, etc.)...
if you could let me know about those 2 things, i should be on my way..
thanks again for your help.
