Please remember to use the Editor account before making any template changes, If you have not made an editor account yet please read HERE

Second you must have all ready a template you can edit.

If you have not done this please read HOWTODOIT


The first thing you need to do is view the page source of your index page


Internet Explorer
Right click anywhere on the page and click on view source or goto tools on the toolbar and click view source

Firefox

Right click anywhere on the screen and click view source or  on the toolbar click on View then page source.

You are looking for ALL the text inbetween the

Code:
<style> and </style> or <style type="text/css">
 copy this text but do not copy the
Code:
<style> and </style> or <style type="text/css">


If you can not find the
Code:
<style> and </style> or <style type="text/css">
tags then STOP you do not need to do any more your template is already set up.


So the code MAY look something like this (DO NOT COPY THIS, IT IS AN EXAMPLE)

Spoiler:

Code:
<style type="text/css">

</style>




Ok now goto admin-panel --   3. Styles--Edit Templates/Logos


And open up your template.  

Using the top drop bar find you .css it will look something like this

myff_yourforum1.css

Now delete all the text in that file. Now place the text you saved earlier form viewing page source into this file. So in other words open up the myff_whatever1.css file and replace all the text with the text you saved when viewing page source.

Ok now you must place a / in front of "templates/" so it becomes "/templates/

An example would be

Before

Code:
"templates/myfs_testhtml3/images/icon_mini_login.gif"


After

Code:
"/templates/myfs_testhtml3/images/icon_mini_login.gif"






Ok Now goto your overall_header.tpl  and remove the block of code beginning with
Code:
<style> or <style type="text/css">
and ending in
Code:
</style>


An example would be to remove all of this code, like below.

Code:


<style type="text/css">

Now make sure you have a line that looks like this in your overall_header.tpl


Code:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="templates/myff_yourforum1{T_HEAD_STYLESHEET}" type="text/css" ->


Or


Code:
<!-- link rel="stylesheet" href="templates/myff_yourforum1/{T_HEAD_STYLESHEET}" type="text/css" -->


Note you need to replace "myff_yourforum1" with your own template name.


If you do not then place just after <head> or <HEAD>




Ok Now goto your simple_header.tpl  and remove the block of code beginning with
Code:
<style> or <style type="text/css">
and ending in
Code:
</style>


An example would be to remove all of this code, like below.


Spoiler:

Code:


<style type="text/css">

Now make sure you have a line that looks like this in your simple_header.tpl


Code:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="templates/myff_yourforum1{T_HEAD_STYLESHEET}" type="text/css" ->


Or


Code:
<!-- link rel="stylesheet" href="templates/myff_yourforum1/{T_HEAD_STYLESHEET}" type="text/css" -->


Note you need to replace "myff_yourforum1" with your own template name.


If you do not then place just after <head> or <HEAD>
