Hi there, I just found this place looking for help to make my forums look different than the out of the box version.

I have Version: 6.2.1 or that's what it says anyway.

Installing it was easy, I wanted to make it look better, but golly gee this place is overwhelming!

Is there just someplace for DUMMIES where you can just start with reading a basic description of what is going on and how all this stuff is approached? I thought perhaps I could find some templates and somehow get them into my forum options to use, but I just don't have a clue here.
Man you people are SERIOUS about this stuff now!!!!!
It is quite intimidating to say the least.

I am as lost as a goose in a snowstorm....
Thanks In Advance!
Ben

Dalantech has posted his "facelift" templates here - which are fairly simple to install. However the latest post requires 6.3. So you'd need to upgrade.

Table wrappers generally will help you get the site looking different than "out of the box as well".

Another good place to start may be down in the "How to/Site Help Library" for some customization tips.

But if you get lost - just ask.

Thank you Josh, I just saw that this is a "thread" forum?

You scared him away PJ! You're supposed to sway him to the dark side! *waits to hear the clip*....

And gee.... 6.2.1. They're up to 6.5 now. Oy. For me, that would be like dangling a $20 bill in front of a crackhead or something. I'd just have to snatch it!
