StyleVar or Template Issue?
After installing Photopost Classifieds, it appears that some parts don't quite display correctly, probably because of the style we are using for our VB forums (which is actually using the Bold Grey theme downloaded from the official vb.com website).
The relevant parts are as follows:
Is it possible to know which StyleVar or which template is picked up by PP Classifieds from VB so that I can change either the text to white or background to white.
Alternatively, if it is possible to customise this just for PP Classifieds alone, that would be better as it would leave my existing VB styles as they are.
Yeah well when classifieds was coded to use vb4 styles everything is based on the default style.
I am not expect but I would think maybe look under forumbit,forumhead or foruminfo classes. Those are the ones used there.
Would it be possible to pinpoint specifically which StyleVar PPclassifieds pulled to render the text which is giving me the problem?
Specifically it is the words Home >> Nikon Products >> Nikon DSLRs & Slrs.
Since I am not using that style its hard to say. The 3 style classes used are listed above. There is also normal there but thats an old vb3 class.
I've reverted to the original vb4 style to help in troubleshooting this.
I'm trying to change the colours of the words circled:
Am not sure what else to change or try.
Using Firebug to try to get at this, I see a td class=menubarnb, and changing the color value in body under that seems to work, but can't seem to figure out where to go from here to make it permanent in vb.
None of that would work. Your vb4 default style shows how it is suppose to show and it does show in the default style fine

what is needed is maybe a slight redesign of the template try grabbing my cathead and showcat templates and use those
Looking at your reeftalk.com site, I notice that the header row where the category map is (the area I've circled) in your site shows a dark blue words on a white background, whilst mine showed dark blue words on a lighter blue background.
Swapping the two templates for yours (actually it seems cathead.tmpl is the one), now yields the same results as yours.
Can you explain what was changed in your template to make the background white? Did your template draw the colour from another class or stylevar compared to the original?
Since this template obviously looks better even with the vb4 default style (and solved the problem even with my custom sytle), should this amended template be something included in the download package from now on?
I compared the code for the two templates and found the differences to be the following (additional in the revamped one); but being a non-programmer, am not able to understand its significance:
If you like how it looks on my site you must use both templates meantioned as there are changes in both from the downloaded code
I will probally release an update when I have enough file changes to warrant one.
