Greetings. I'm new to the community and a relative novice with site design. It is really the 3rd hat I wear in our small organization... and it may show. We are contemplating using Vanilla because of it's design and feel. We don't want a typical forum in function or personality and it looks as if Vanilla avoids what we don't want and offers what we desire. Thanks for your hard work! All going well, we will put it to good use. One of the things that is important to us is how transparant we can make Vanilla (through the use of themes/styles) with the rest of our site. Could we carry over the style/feel of our website into Vanilla. So I've read the wiki on Themes and am ready to give it a try. However, our install, which was very easy for this newbie, did not create a themes folder - at least not that I can tell. It does contain a "styles" folder which contains image files and CSS. Can you tell me if I did something wrong... and what I need to do to proceed with our themes experiment. Thanks. Kent

    The documentation relates to Vanilla 1 which has not been released yet. We've been working towards it's release for quite some time, and the documentation was part of that effort. There is a pre-release version of Vanilla 1 available here if you wanted to give it a go - it *does* have the theming capabilities you are looking for, while the version available at does not.

    The web developer addons for Firefox help a lot too.

    web developer toolbar - extremely helpful. the live css editing is an invaluable tool.
    firebug - also great. this has helped me find some really obscure javascript/css bugs.
