Like to change the color of the Toolbar buttons... and paging buttons...

Is this controlled via classes in the css file?

Can't seem to find it...

Did you mean DNNForum or ActiveForums? 

DNNForum is an outgoing product and will not be continiued!  Any module have a own css file named module.css you can find in the module Folder.

An older instruction to create designs for ActiveForums you can find on .

Hope this will help you.

I downloaded and installed 5.0.3 - from the ActiveForums site into DNN 7.1 Community version.

I'm pretty sure its the same forum that DNN *used* to use for DNN3 and 4 - maybe 5. I still see a lot of the css that I did for that forum. (I was on the forum development team with Chris Paterra.) At that time, the tool bar was skinned with icons - not its part of the RadAjax system and I'm trying to find out how to change the color/style of buttons controlled by that system.

ActiveForums has some - but very little information on skinning the forum... at least that I could find. I've been trying to get a hold of Crispy... but no luck yet..

Any pointers are appreciated - or contact info fro Chris - who I know will point me in the right direction...

the Active Forums is completly different to the old DNN Forum.  Active Forums was created by the Team from Will Morgenweck.  I know there was some templating and design instruction on page for an older Version.  I didn't know if they changed or the module have some changes that are not documented there.

Pleas for future questions make always clear what Forum Module you mean and use DNNForum or ActiveForums with the Version. ;-)

I've made it clear in my post above.  I downloaded it via Active Forums.

On the other hand, its not entriely clear what you mean.  I've looked at the code on this (DNN) forum and compared it to ActiveForums - they are almost identical... so do you mean DNN Forum as some legacy module that DNN used to distribute - or do you mean this forum on DNN?

Thanks for your time.
