Blue Sky 2.0 skin with sidebar and header


Hi,

This is a very basic theme based on Smackdown5's Blue Sky theme (matter of fact most of the coding for the forums is his).
What I did is put into place a sidebar and a header area then changed the html color codes to web friendly ones. The goal was to provide
new board owners with a basic foundation to work with since none of the existing pre-defined themes provide for this style of
layout.

]Blue Sky 2.0


To implement the skin you start by changing your boards theme to the Blue Sky theme. Then you delete the existing CSS and HTML for that theme and replace them with the following:

The CSS Code
body {font-family:verdana;font-size:14px}

/* Pastor Rick's Blue Sky 2.0 Skin */
/* SETS THE PAGES MARGINS AND LEAVES A SMALL MARGIN AT THE TOP AND BOTTOM */

body {margin:5px;margin-top:6px;margin-bottom:6px}

/* HEADER=BANNER AREA */

div#header {height:90px;width:100%;border-style:solid;border-width:1px;border-color:#09f;} /* same as #0099ff */

div#header h1 {margin:0px;margin-top:5px;margin-bottom:5px;}


/* SIDEBAR AND BORDER DEFINITIONS */

.sidebar, .main, .bgfoot { vertical-align: top; border: 1px solid #09f; }
.sidebar { width: 15%; }

/* THE BACKGROUND COLOR SHOWN WHILST IMAGE IS LOADING */

/* SETS THE OUTER TABLES WIDTH TO KEEP NON-TABLE CONTENT WITHIN A MAX WIDTH*/

.ak_msg_master_table {border:none;width:98%;font-family:verdana;font-size:14px}
