    Hey guys,

    Trying to redesign my forum header to match my wordpress theme.

    Basically trying to find an element's css properties in the style system so I can change it. I used crome to get the id of the element, but I just can't track it down, even with the search function inside the style admin sections.


    Then I go here...


    It finds nothing.

    I noticed xenforo has an absolute positioned header. Why do you guys use absolute positioning may I ask.

    Also how do I track down this element.

    Kind Regards

    Search just for 'headerProxy'.

    It works completely fine for me. Make sure that the "Template Status" checkboxes are all checked.

    Hey guys thanks for the quick responses

    Still nothing

    They are all checked.

    Any other suggestions?

    Thank you

    If there are no results for headerProxy then it is not present in your style templates.

    But it exists in the page when it is rendered, how do I go about editing it?

    This id is located in the "public.css" template.

    Might seem like a small oversight but make sure there's nothing filled in your little filter box on the top right :).
