Huh? Change it to what? I don't understand your question at all. Examples and images are always welcome if they help describe the question/problem.

Sorry i meant the colour of the category link..

Like on the vbulletin forums http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum.php where it has the category 'vBulletin Announcements' how would i change the colour of that?


Thanks

I strongly suggest you download the document in Don's blog here - vB4: Skinning Your Forum in 10 Easy Steps (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/entry.php?2373-vB4-Skinning-Your-Forum-in-10-Easy-Steps) The stylevars are shown there. You may also want to download the firebug plugin for firefox to help make things a lot easier. (forumbits_aForum)

When you hover over the tab? Or just category colors?
For forum colors theres a mod, or you can add font html to a template.

Did you look in that document? Did you grab that addon I mentioned? Have you tried looking in the source code to find the class of that bar and then looked it up?

How do I put my own image behind forum categories? I've downloaded Don's stuff, but I can't figure out how to get my own image behind the forum categories. See attached. I've added the color purple to the background, but I want an entire image (of my own) there, which is how i have my current vb3 forum set up.

What stylevar did you change to add the color? Isn't there a background url in that same stylevar?
