The site this was originally designed for no long looks like the sample on Mottie's site. The CSS was posted but not where and how to insert the divider code. Is it just done as an image and then formatted by the CSS? (That goes on your custom CSS.)

Also to format my forums I am told to go to the Control Panel and then Styles & Colors the Forums Styles. I don't see Styles & Colors...  Content Boxes but not the other. And there doesn't seem to be a place to paste code....

Hi Arahila!

The divider CSS goes into one of these places:
  • Add it to any Free Form Text/HTML widget that is on the same page where you want to style the divider
  • Add to your Custom CSS into (make sure you enable before saving):
    • Full Custom CSS, if you are using full custom CSS and already have this section enabled.
    • CSS Additions to Standard, if you are using the control panel to style your site

As for the Forum styling, you are reading older instructions written before the control panel changed. Now go to Control Panel > Style Tools > Forum-Specific.

Here is the page: http://www.guildportal.com/Guild.aspx?GuildID=342141&TabID=3017818

Must be my day to not make sense. On the divider, I have the CSS already input, what I don't know how to do is actually get the divider between the news posts. Do I insert an img url or what?

Got it. Working it now.    But what is the area that is a black bar on my forum page called? I've tried to find it and failed.

That bar is called the "ForumCategoryHeader" in the CSS. In the Control Panel you can find it by going to Control Panel > Style Tools > Forum-Specific > Category Background.

Mottie, I hope you are sitting down - I'm finally starting to understand and get things done! Crack open a cold beverage of your choice, dude!

Many, many thanks!    You've been extremely patient with me trying to get back up to speed. (Will go to Amazon and update my reference books!)
