Hi There,
On this site here, http://self-practiceself-reflection.com/forum/
You will see I have attempted to change the colors on this site.
The light blue just won't seem to go away to #5b0f18 as I have changed it.  I am obvioulsy trying to change the css tag .forumbg  but it wont' apply.
Also I have tried to change the logo from .gif to png in the imageset.cfg but it won't apply...
what on earth am I missing...this is driving me nuts!

For the light blue background you want to change

.navbar {
      background-color: rgb(34, 92, 139);
}

If this is in syle.php line 2821.   If you can't get to that because it is in the program, then I would first try and find where to make that change.

Otherwise, add your own stylesheet below the other styles and add  code for .navbar but change to your own color.

.navbar {
      background-color: rgb(34, 92, 139);
}

We ended up chosing a method recommended on the phpbb documentation.'
There is a website where you can change colors and essentially set up a theme, but it can be a bit tricky to see the end result..we ended up sticking to their standard colors...it was really user unfriendly
