Hi

Is it possible to change theme/skins?
I would like to change the size of the page... putting the content of the forum in middle of the page... How can I get this?

thanks

Do a forum search on theme or skins .. there are several threads on theme/skins (and yes it is possible).

Moving the content around will involve editing files to change the content location.

Well, it really depends upon how much "re-arranging" you want to do!

But start off looking at the forum_list.htm file. You may have to edit several of the .htm files for your changes (again, depending upon what you touch).

The theme/skin (color, line size, fonts, etc.) is controlled through the .css files.

Cool! If it's publicly accessible, please post a link!

You must have 2.1.4 then, right? (forum_base.htm)
