    Its not MOD Iam talking bout the problem is the template or I should say the background why is it plain white?? with no box for the codes?? Its the same thing in Distinct...

    Looks bad..

    Finally found the problem

    It is to do with how the page is called it does not handle theme variants so need to find where in SMF the bug is

    It works fine in non variant themes

      Okay have found a fix

      Both packages have been updated but still doesn't like variants

      To just update either theme manually

      Extract the zip file and up load the index.css to the theme/distinct/css directory

        i might be being a little dumb here but that's not unusual LOL
        can you tell me exactly what the difference between Distinct and the More Distinct themes?
        i have installed both but cannot see a difference  ::)
        also if you alter the Forum width in the settings, so that the forum looks right on my monitor.
        how does that affect the looks for other members ?
        and the last question for now  :-[how do i increase the size of the txt in post as it seem a little small

              Hi Sorry for the delay

              This is distinct



              and this is more Distinct



              You will notice that More Distinct on has a single border

              and the search box and over all layout is more compact

              And for the font can you post a screen shot of where the font need increasing

                  Many Thanks Nukegaming

                  The changes are subtle but you get what you down load :D:D

                  Personally I was going to remove the original but as it is on SMF I left it as a download Here

                    no probs Shortie and thanks for coming back to me
                    i see the differences now LOL

                    it is the text in a post that i need increasing
                    some of my members are old and decrepit so cannot see it very well  :D
                    for some reason it looks much smaller than the txt you are using in this theme and themes i have used in the past

                    i read SoLoGHoST post but want to double check its correct before i go playing with things i know nothing about

                        Yeah getting round to it

                        Also looks fine to me :D:D:D

                        Okay to change the text size

                        Just open each of the CSS files

                        And change the body font size from 70% to what ever size you require NOTE this will push some of the padding as well but can be increased to about 90% no problem
