OK, I was just playing around with the CSS on my test board, and came up with a couple of things. If you want the boarder just around the outside of the whole table, try:

Code:

table.forumlisttable {border:1px solid #000000;}


If you want it around the individual cells, try:

Code:

td.forumlist {border:1px solid #000000;}


That's just through experimenting on the test board, youmight have to make sure you don't have a border specified in the main table or somewhere else.:smile:

thanks, that's sort of it, but what i really want is a single line border - doing it that way makes the border look double width where the cells touch each other (if i can get rid of the padding, that is)

Any way to do it using a nested table with 1 pixel cell spacing?

Ah, I think I've got what you want now. Just put the colour that you want for the borders as the background colour for the .forumlisttable. Like:

Code:

table.forumlisttable {background:#000000;}

for a black border, and make the background for your td.forumlist the colour you want there. Worked like that for me here :smile:

Re: how do i put a border around just my forum list? ( 19:59:46 FriMar 22 2002 )

:ohwell: I'm not understanding. When I do this code:
Code:

 table.forumlisttable {background:#000000;}
I get a double line around everything, but if I do the last code suggested,
Code:

 table.forumlisttable {background:#000000;}
the whole table turns black.

Posting on the .threadlist thread, the board was exactly the way I wanted it, I loved the forumlisttable, the only problem was that there were dark areas on my board and it was pointed out that it was because of the EC. So I deleted all that stuff, and now I'm back to square one and as lost as can be. Although I prefer CSS, I just have a hard time remember what part stands for which on the board.

If you could please help me chris, I would like the table back the way it was, you know when you saw my board today....how do i get that single table all the way through instead of that double thing going on? Thanks. :smile:

K, I've had a play - how's that? That's as thin as the broders are getting using CSS, it looks, if you wanted it even thinner.. :ohwell:


You'll want to put a colour in the news fader background if you don't want it black.. :smile:

Yeah it was thinner before, but I do appreciate your help. So I can't have the fader transparent anymore, huh? :sad:

You should be able to use this to get your backgrouund image in there:

Code:

.newsfader {background:url('http://whatever.com/image.gif');}

Probably..... :smile:

How about putting this in the "background" field on the news fader settings? :wink:

Code:

url('http://whatever.com/image.gif')
