I followed some of the links that Old Eagle gave me and found a tutorial on how to install new styles. Several of these templates were pre-loaded into the board software and I have installed them.

You should now be able to choose from several different styles.

Go to your user control panel and select "board preferences". There you will find a drop down menu under "styles". Click on that and you will see a choice of several different board skins. I have selected some green thing and it works for me.

OK, I have made "gateway green" the default style.

The difference should be immediately apparent to everyone, and draw attention to your option of changing templates in your user control panel.

I see avatars and names are on the left side where they belong with the green style. I was wondering how to fix that, now I aint got to worry about it. There's also a new tab for adding attachments in the reply screen and a different format for changing colors and adding codes.

The Green Style is Kewl.

Starting to hang of this place...

In fact... it actually looks quite good.
