It was my last word for today, now it is Khakhan's turn to make it beautiful by changing images and skin_file.asp!

Ok. However, I need the page structure to be altered to something like http://www.nissangtir.co.uk/forum/default.asp

where the header image goes all the way across and the forum has an outer border. How can we steal its files? I think the alteration has to be done through somewhere in the asp code. The skin file offers a very limited amount of material you can change.

Quotes are very hard to read with the dark skin
Other than that it was great.

It doesn't work any more!!

Khakhan, did you replace skin_file.asp with a new file or just edited it?

LOL.

Well I was testing a skin. Something was wrong with the compatibility, so I reverted it, but somehow either the server or my tp glitched and the files appeared to be uploaded, but they weren't, so it was messed up.

Anyways, I've looked around and I think I know how to customize the layout now. It's even harder than doing it in proboards since documentation and examples are few. So I'll work on the skin sometime (for real. lol). The main problem is that the classes for the table layout are not unique enough. That limits the texture possiblities with the forum menu.

do you think we will eventually have the option in the CP to revert our board to that  rustic color that the old board was? It was easy on the eyes when reading.

Agreed, I loved the rustic color of AE #1.  Great on the eyes, and very fitting for our forum theme.

I uploaded the file, so it works again!

But images should be changed to something that can be seen well in both dark and light backgrounds, I think the light shadow of the buttons should be removed.

hmm I think skin switching is difficult in this forum. We'll have to have two sets of images at once. I'll make a unique AE skin soon...
