    Angry PHPBB3 is clearly on drugs

    Has anyone experienced wacky behaviour from PHPBB3 particularly relating to the styles?

    Yes, I understand it has a cache and for a template change to show you have to clear the cache. But I am getting the absolute runaround with css. The theme I use is a modified copy of the prosilver theme. I have been able to fiddle with the templates just fine, but whenever I try and change the styles it seems to take half a week to fix anything.

    For example I am trying to remove a border from an image in my header. The div does not even exist in the entire forums folder let alone an instruction to add a bottom border. I did previously want the border there so thats fine but now I want to get rid of it, and I can't.

    Anyone know how on earth to work with css in PHPBB3? Surely i'm not the only one...

    if anyone ever comes across this post, I have worked it out.

    When you purge the cache, it clears the template cache but not the CSS cache. I am unaware what will clear the CSS cache, except for going to server configuration > load settings > Recompile stale style components (set to yes)

    that wasn't an obscure thing to do to make a simple style sheet effect work, was it?

    I seem to remember that i worked out how to do this properly when I converted my forum a few months back but at the moment I can't remember what it was I did to solve it.
