Some of the users of my forum have difficulty reading the small font sizes used by default in FUDForum. Does anyone know in which files I should look for the default paraments for display fonts (or the actual parameter names themselves)?

Thank so much in advance for your help!

Use the style editor, it will allow you to alter the CSS used by the forum and increase font size as well as change outher layout related settings.

I accomplished the same thing by editting the header_1.inc file, which was nasty business because, for some reason, when I ran the install for FUDForum, it created all the associated files belonging to user "nobody" (versus my identity on the server). As a result, since I didn't own header_1.inc, I couldn't edit it and save over the original. I got around this by creating a PHP shell in the data directory that blew away the original header_1.inc. I then replaced it with a copy that I own.

Having gone through all that nonsense, I saw your reply and finally figured out how to go into STYLE MANAGER and click on the DEFAULT selection to get the editor to which you refer. FYI - I think that process could be more intuitive.

Great software; I look forward to the 2.0 release.

One last thing, if you need to edit files made by forum, just use the File Manager to chmod the file you need to edit/delete 777 and voila Smile

P.S. New apache 2.0.35 stable has come out, this apache supports individual user groups for each virtual host.

I'm sure I totally goofed something up during the install of FUDForum, but the final product is that on the Apache server hosting my site, I don't "own" any of the FUDForum files. I can see them, but if they were set to, for example, 644, during the install, I couldn't modify them (since they weren't 'mine'). Very wierd. CHMOD wouldn't work *until* I created a file called change_perms.php with the simple code:

<html>
<?php
chmod ("/home/username/public_html/FUDforum/file.name", 0777);
?>
</html>

Why this worked through PHP and not through a Telnet client, nor WS_FTP is a total mystery. However, it did.

I'm totally out of my league here, I know.

The Private Forum hack works pretty well too, though I know it's not supported by ya'll. Just wanted to share that since if *I* could get it to work, then it *must* be pretty simple and idiot proof.

If you want to modify the FUDforum files manually, you need to use the admin control panel to 'unlock files'.
