 HTML Templates & Skinning Help
#
Hey, guys! I've been trying to skin something new and it's the first time I've used the HTML templates. Right now I'm working on the actual posts and I'm running into some issues. First, I can't seem to actually stylize the posts themselves, I'd like to change the background color and add some padding, where does that go?

Second, I'd like to add some variables both above and below the posts, something in line with this but I can't just add <!-- |field_#| -->, can I?

This is what I have kind of mocked up so far. I'd like to be able to let users put their own two gifs in and then down at the bottom I want their alias. I'd also love for the blue there to change color based on the member group color which I've been able to do with mini profiles and CFS in the past but have no idea how to do in this particular instance.

figured out the styling, it's .postcolor and I wasn't sure why that would be any different. *facepalms* Still working on adding my own fields.

Fields can be added to the mini profiles, but not to the post templates. You could try to work those into there but I agree it's going to be a little tricky. Looking at the template example you linked, that seems to be what they did.
