I want different images for each board I have. The problem is, trying to specify in the CSS by row #'s isn't working. I used #cat-1 to specify the category, but this makes it so that every board in the category has the same image, which is not quite what I'm trying to achieve.

Any thoughts? I've done this before, but it was using a converter from the Custom Forum Structure by Black to Jcink's HTML templates. I'm solely working with the HTML templates now so I'm not sure how to specify by row number.

You've got the idea you just need the right variable to get it done. You're right cat_id won't work for this, but I know what will.

The variable <!-- |forum_id| -->, in the forum row, will get you the forum id.



<div class="brdimg"> </div>


<div class="brdimg-<!-- |forum_id| -->"> </div>

Now you'll be able to use the forum id at the end of the bdrimg class in your css for each forum to add an image ex: bdrimg-1 for forum id #1

Thanks, John! Just one last quick question.

I put this in my css and I didn't get the image to appear. Am I misunderstanding?

.brdimg-1 {

Quick edit: I think I fixed it! Thank you.

I was gonna say -- that should have worked, but glad you got it solved.

One note.

I notice you're using

try to use since is deprecated and https is best going forward. you should also prefix the background image links to be https rather than http, just for future compatability
