It doesn't work. This new theme is different. Need to find another style. Can't even chaneg the white background to another color. The inbox font is even in another language.

Is the vancouver forum using prosilver?

It's defiantly Vancouver, or at least the feel I get with all the photos I see of it. :)
oh agreed - it is very vancouver. i am just too practical when it comes to skins, function comes first then the looks:))

yes gf - van forum is using a prosilver based skin but we have a subsilver2 too.

this one is prosilver based also.

i like subsilver skins better but there are just most prosilver skins out there to choose from.

hey! to change what background color? stick an arrow to it so i know which one you mean. and font - i always have to try out a few before i find it:) - but just open up the theme for the style in your ACP and look for the color that font or background is now (you can quickly check the font color using the digitalcolor meter which is in your mac's utilities) and once you find it - that's the font color you'd want to change to whatever color you had in mind.

those borders are images so you'd need to change those images to change the border colors - i find that changing stuff around can amount to a lot of work and it often ends up looking a bit - bastardized.

i'd go for artodia colorizeit instead of the one you have now - it's very gentle on the eyes and a bit plain jane but not boring so you maybe won't have to change any colors.. http://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/style ... zeit/demo/

Why not go to 2freehosting.com. It is absolutely free with no ads. I have 5 personal webhosting accounts on it. If you need your own domain name then you can buy it through them, or somewhere else, and point to 2freehosting.com. You get 20 GB of space and 100 GB of bandwidth, which is enough for 300-500 visitors per day, and 20 GB space is more then enough for most web sites. Usually you pay $5-10/month for the features they provide with account.

I had an account like that, but with nobody using it it was closed .
good also because it had phpbb already set up at a few clicks, and they did all the updating . I forget the website, but it was nice for a backup.

how many simultaneous connections to a database do they allow - i'd be interested in finding that out about any shared host.

There is no restriction on simultaneous connection to database. I am running Wordpress on all my accounts, which requires multiple connections to SQL database. Here is a link to one of the account. http://webdesign.twomini.com and other one is http://www.bostondesiconnection.com.

The only limit is 1500 GB bandwidth per month, which is enough for 300-500 visitors per day, as long as you are running is a huge file download/upload server, which can consume your bandwidth limit much sooner.
