Is this possible? (advanced templating)

  • Well thisd is what I want. I have 1 forum and it has 2 forum cats. Lets call them forum 1 and forum 2.

    Now I have the kakumei them running (green). Now I want forum 1 to be green, but if they go to forum 2, I want it to be blue (kakumei blue).

    So is it possible to have different colors/themes for each category? Or some dirty hack to do this? This is also need for subforums to give them a different style, but fornow I just need it per category.

  • Yeah, assuming the themes have consistent HTML, in the header, put something like this:

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php if ($forum_id == 1) bb_stylesheet_uri(); elseif ($forum_id == 2) echo '/my-templates/kakumei-blue/style.css'; ?>" type="text/css" />

    I didn’t test this, but I think that code should work.

    Can this be done with entire templates too? Perhaps in topic.php or something (cant try this at the moment)

    If you want varying HTML depending on what the forum id is, you should probably just use a conditional if/inside of one template file like so:

    <?php if ($forum_id == 1) {

    echo 'html1';

    } elseif ($forum_id == 2) {

    echo 'html2';


    Any other approach will probably lead to madness. :-)
