    If you'll take a look HERE you will see a WordPress installation with the 'Dirty Blue' theme active. If you click on the 'Forums' link up top, you'll see how the forums affect the visibility of the container by default.

    Any suggestions?

    I think you've probably removed it now because I can't view the forum and there aren't any links to register/login however I think you mean that when you're using this on a dark theme using the dark theme setting the font colour is incorrect? You'll just have to alter/remove the code around lines 10 in wp-bulletin-board/css/wpbb-dark-style.css:

    p, div, a {
    	color:white;
    }

    You may just want to remove the colour from paragraphs in which case remove "p," or link colours ", a" or the whole thing.

    Let me know if you need any help with this.

    Thanks.

    It wasn't a color issue. I'll take a screenshot a little later to indicate exactly what I was talking about. Basically, though, that theme has a styled layer with a border for the content. When I visit the forums page with wpBB installed, it removes the border on the left, right, and bottom, but keeps the top border intact. On all other pages using that theme the translucent background and borders of that layer are all intact.

    Gotcha. Haven't tested this as the dirty blue theme I searched for is a lot different from yours but remove line 78 in wp-bulletin-board/css/wpbb-dark-style.css:

    border-top: 1px solid #ddd;

    Okay Sorry. I need to be more specific in clarifying my issue here. It's removing the borders from the wordpress theme, not the borders from the forum. In other words, the forum is expanding from left to right and to the bottom enough to where it is actually covering that styled layer. I'll go ahead and enable the theme on the current site you are looking at for my other issue.

    Ah, sorry about that.

    In that case you'll just have to add this to themes/dirty-blue/wpbb-template.php

    before get_footer() add:

    get_sidebar();

    :)

    That works well. Is there a way you can detect if a theme requires more elements to finish the layout?

    Anyways, for this theme, that resolves the issue. Thanks.

    Not that I know of I'm afraid. I have heard of similar things being done though, would no doubt require php, javascript and css but this is something that's beyond the scope of this support forum. I'm sure you could find out more on the web from other more knowledgable programmers/designers.

    Thanks.
