Template Name: Milky Way


Question:

Howdy!

I wanted to change the color of my footer from green to orange. Here is a screenshot of the current footer.


Not sure if this is what's needed or not, but here's the current code of my overall_footer.html.

Spoiler:

</td>
</tr>
</table>

<div style="text-align: center;"><!-- IF U_ACP --><br /><br /><span class="gensmall">[ <a href="{U_ACP}">{L_ACP}</a> ]</span><br /><br /><!-- ENDIF --></div>

<!-- IF not S_IS_BOT -->{RUN_CRON_TASK}<!-- ENDIF -->
</div>

<div id="bottom_logo_ext">
<div id="bottom_logo">
<table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0">
<tr>
<td class="np" nowrap="nowrap" width="250" align="left">
<br /><span class="copyright">&nbsp;Powered by <a href="http://www.phpbb.com/">phpBB</a></span><br /><br />
</td>
<td class="np" nowrap="nowrap" align="center">&nbsp;</td>
<td class="np" nowrap="nowrap" width="250" align="right">

</td>
</tr>
</table>
</div>
</div>
</td>
<td class="rightshadow" width="9" valign="top"><img src="{T_THEME_PATH}/images/spacer.gif" alt="" width="9" height="1" /></td>
</tr>

</div>

<div style="text-align: center;">
<span class="copyright">
<!-- IF TRANSLATION_INFO -->{TRANSLATION_INFO}<br /><!-- ENDIF -->
<!-- IF DEBUG_OUTPUT --><br /><bdo dir="ltr">[ {DEBUG_OUTPUT} ]</bdo><!-- ENDIF -->
</span>
</div>

<a name="bottom"></a>

</body>
</html>



Oh yeah, one more thing. If you look at the screenshot I posted earlier of my footer, at the very bottom, it looks like:

I'm sure you can see the obvious problem there. (If you can't, it's that the first bracket is floating :p)

Any idea how to fix that??

Need any other info? Let me know

Thanks so much to those that offer assistance with everything listed above!

Code:

save, edit and upload using the template edit to replace the original file

EDIT: my post made before seeing Nick's response.

You need to replace the bg_footer.gif image you are using to change the color of the footer. You could simply not use a gif image and specify color for the table you are using in that footer, for example:

Code:

<table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" bgcolor="#FF0000">
<tr>
<td class="np" nowrap="nowrap" width="250" align="left">
<br /><span class="copyright">&nbsp;Powered by <a href="http://www.phpbb.com/">phpBB</a></span><br /><br />
</td>
<td class="np" nowrap="nowrap" align="center">&nbsp;</td>
<td class="np" nowrap="nowrap" width="250" align="right">

</td>
</tr>
</table>


Or just change the color of the gif image and replace the existing one with the exact named file.

The offending right bracket [ is from this bit:

Code:

<!-- IF DEBUG_OUTPUT -->
<br />
<bdo dir="ltr">[ {DEBUG_OUTPUT} ]</bdo>
<!-- ENDIF -->


Don't know why you need the brackets around the DEBUG_OUTPUT item between the text direction override bdo tag.

Hey guys,

Thanks so much for your help!

One question Nick,
Would you mind explaining the

part to me?

I've downloaded the original, edited it how I like, but I'm still not sure exactly sure how to upload it, so I can replace it.

Any other information needed, please let me know, and I'll be glad to provide!

Thanks again for all your help!
