PunBB 1.3 styles


To Add a new style:

  • Place it in directory <FORUM_ROOT>/style.

To Change a style:

  • To change only your profile (so that only you can see the new style), go to profile and Settings
  • To change the forum style, go to the admin panel and settings

Please note: Changing the style in the admin panel will not update current user styles unless ALL other styles are removed. If the main style in the admin panel is changed then currently registered users must change theirs manually.

Developer information

When making a style, there are a couple of things you must keep in mind. The most important is to make the style work with PunBB. There are two files that PunBB uses for the styles:

  • *.css. This file contains all the positions and layout for PunBB 1.3
  • *_cs.css. This file contains the look and color for PunBB 1.3
