    I'd like to make my forum in Sitefinity look very nice, but I don't know how?  I'm looking at a file called forumsCommonLayout.css and I think that's the right one, but I'm really not sure what to change next.   For instance I'd like to change the colors of the rows so they alternate.  Maybe the first row is light blue and the second is white.  Are there any tutorials on how to edit this?


    I've attached a screenshot of my forum so you can see what it looks like.

    Hi Troy Lawrence,

    Forum Posts are listed in GridViews with CssClass="sf_forumsList" to customize the appearance of the forums list means styling a GridView. You can edit the ~/Sitefinity/ControlTemplates/ForumsList.ascx template to manipulate the appearance of the grids by applying desired styles for the grid:

    <asp:GridView ID="inner" runat="server" CssClass="sf_forumsList" AutoGenerateColumns="false" GridLines="none" RowStyle-BackColor="Red" AlternatingRowStyle-BackColor="LightBlue" >

    All the best,
