How can i add round upper corners to the top bar?

This modification to add border radius will make original bordering in this mod, looks ugly and we'll need a new bordering model.

Put this code into your css_additional.css
style manager> style name> edit templates> CSS templates> css_additional.css

.forum-list-container .category-header td{
-webkit-border-top-left-radius: 10px;
-webkit-border-top-right-radius: 10px;
-moz-border-radius-topleft: 10px;
-moz-border-radius-topright: 10px;
border-top-left-radius: 10px;
border-top-right-radius: 10px;
.forum-list-container .forum-item td {
border-top: 1px solid #ddd;
.forum-list-container .forum-item .lastpost{
border-right: 1px solid #ddd;
.forum-list-container .forum-item .cell-forum{
border-left: 1px solid #ddd;
.list-footer,.forum-list-container .subforum-list > td{
border-left: 1px solid #ddd;
border-right: 1px solid #ddd;
.forum-list-container .forum-item:last-child td{
border-bottom: 1px solid #c4c4c4!important;
/*-- forums bordering overwrites existing css --*/
.forum-list-container {
border: 0px solid #c4c4c4!important;
border-top: 0px solid #c4c4c4!important;
box-shadow: 0px 0px 0px transparent!important;

If anybody is interested in a version of this which works with the latest version (5.4.5), Glenn from vBMods.rocks made a nice one: https://vbmods.rocks/forum/vbulletin-5-modifications/vbulletin-5-template-only-modifications/2194-forum-category-spacing-on-homepage-no-template-editing-required-and-vbcloud-compatible
