in the readme file it says:

Any changes to colours and fonts will have to be done via the external style sheet (fisubgreen.css)

were is this file ??

Also on my site Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! if you click the forums link the top of the page seems to move down a row, how can that be adjusted ?

Finally if it can't be edited is there any websites that just hold templates for phpbb for nuke raven 7.6 ?

it should be style.css in the style folder

Then you should have a forums.css in the forums folder

As for the theme, I believe anytheme capableof working with 7.6 patch 3.2 should work.

The most important thing to remember his is that, for nuke, 'Template' and 'Theme' refer to two seperate entities.
I'm by no means an expert on either but I have certainly 'dabbled' a bit with this area - to the point where I now have a stand alone fisubice forum template to replace the default subSilver one.

As far as nuke is concerned, 'template' is related to forums and 'theme' is related to the general appearance of nuke.

When the author of phpNuke decided to try and include some sort of 'skinning' for the forum 'look' he did so by allowing any 'theme' which contained a 'Forum' folder (i.e. theme/your_theme/Forums ) to overide the default forum template (subSilver) 'look'.

Unfortunately, the theory and practical application leave a bit to be desired and if you look at some of the code in includes/funtions.php you can clearly see that even the original author got confused during the attmpt to provide the 'skinning' effect as he sometimes refers to 'theme' when he meant 'template'.

Any way, thats just by way of an introduction.

It can be done but it's been a while since I looked at this. However, you will notive that the forum config area does provide a means to edit the style but ONLY if its a forum template (and we are dealing with a 'theme' here).

I'l try to find my notes but if I remember the style and forum css have to be renamed and the calls to them in theme/fisubice/forums have to be adjusted accordingly.
There is a thread hear detailing what is required, a search for 'fisubice' may locate it for you.

Your forum styles will not work via the css until you edit the overall_header.tpl and simple_header.tpl files found in the forum template folder. You must remove the style information found in these files and uncomment the css link in order to use an external css file.

This is all just a guess and I'm sure there are those who know this better than I do, but my guess is your page moves because the forums use their own template system which inserts a table into the existing page. So the page must then adjust to accomodate it. Probably as a result of a margin or padding.
I would say, unless you want to search the themes and the templates to find the culprit, it's just one of those things that is going to happen when you have nested tables like this.
Again, this is just a guess.
