Hi! I have probably a difficult question. At the Proz.com hosting I have access to a PHPBB version 2.8, which I think is based on a UNIX System and I work with WindowsXP, and wishto customize the colors and look and feel. I shall apprecitate greatly if any of you could give me a useful tip. I work Dreamweaver, but when I load a page into DW - it appears blank, I see no menu and or code etc., Thank you for all advice in advance.May be I should have posted this in localisation forum.
You can't customize phpBB using an HTML editor, but phpBB itself provides the means to change the look and feel of your forum.
Start by logging into the phpBB administrative interface (click "Go to Administration Panel" at the bottom of any phpBB page).
In the administration panel, in the left-hand frame, select Styles Admin->Create. This will allow you to create a new "theme" with your own fonts, colors, etc.
For more information, see the "Styles Admin" section of the phpBB user guide: http://www.phpbb.com/support/guide/#section3_4
I hope this helps.
