    hi, any idea on where i change this color? And if possible, the little shadow behind it.
    Basically i would like to have it look the same as the category strips.

    And if possible, removing the "SimRacingCentral" text below. Thanks guys,

    There may be a Style Property for this, but this is how I'd change it by editing the CSS.

    If you search templates for EXTRA.css and add the following:

    Code:
    .profilePage .mast .section.infoBlock h3
    {
    color: white;
    }
    That should turn the text white.

    To remove the board title add this to the extra.css template

    Code:
    .forum_list .titleBar {
    display: none;
    }
    To change the text color for the sidebar there is a style property

    Style Properties -> Sidebar -> Block Heading

    You can find the styling for the category title here

    Style Properties -> Forum/Node List -> Category Strip Title

    Since i´m on the roll here i might as well ask where i can locate the little icon for when you bookmark a site.

    The FTP is like a labyrinth still for me ;)

    "favicon.ico" is what your looking for and should be in public_html folder.

    Edit: it can some time to see the new one you upload unless you add a bit of code to force refresh. Add this in the PAGE_CONTAINER template to force refresh.

    Place the code right under <head>

    Code:
    
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://YOURSITE.com/favicon.ico?v=2" />

    Thanks again for the quick answers, i did everything you told me to but right now it won´t show up, perhaps i have to wait a little like you said?

    Shouldn't be a wait if you added that bit of code. Are you sure the favicon.ico is the web root for the site?

    Send me a link if you want and I can check it out. You may try clearing your browser cache/cookies and restart the browser..shouldn't have to though.

    I´ve added the code and written simracingcentral.eu instead of the yoursite.com
    And i´ve saved it in the ftp in the same spot the original one was :S

    Also cleared everything in the browser. I can see it loading a few times but the original xF logo pops up instead.

    Yea it must be something i´ve not done but it´s weird because i removed the xF logo completely when replacing it with my own so i don´t understand how it can still be there :S

    The favicon needs to be in your root install. Not in your style folder.

    www/favicon.ico

    ok sorry i´m still very very green when it comes to websites and all that goes with it.

    the root install, is it the folder called "root" in FTP? If yes, i can´t enter that folder, access denied.

    It is where you uploaded the XF files. You should see folders like , styles, library, ect...
