Editing the CSS screwed up my forum?

edited July 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hi everyone

I tried editing some of my css, and it screwed up my forum. All I did was add a width tag to the #Body div, uploaded, and you can see the results here: Forum. Then I removed the tag and it didn't go back to normal. I just read the FAQ about creating custom styles, and it says to copy everything into a new theme folder. That was my mistake (didn't do it), but how do I get my forum back to normal?

    Just download the original CSS file and overwrite it.

    I tried that.

    just reupload the files again.

    aye, delete the whole thing, and database....and then do a clean install

    you don't need to reinstall the db. just re-upload the files.

    All the files?

    What confuses me is why the change would totally restructure the forum.

    check all the template files are there. As if you are mission sidebar ones and all it might not go down too well

    You must have done something else. Maybe accidentally...

    Changing the CSS and then changing it back wouldn't cause the problem you are having.

    If you want to know what happened, download the files from the server to a new directory and analyze what are the differences (see structure directory with 'tree' and you'd better use 'diff' first on tree files than on each files recursively). It's just a bit long for what you'll learn from this analysis ^^
