All suggestions and help are welcome

First of all, hello to the ocportal community, and a pat on the back to the people working hard to make a great cms.

A few things I'd like to change here, thought I'd ask some advice on my theme because I run a guild site and have recently invited my gaming guild to test this cms with me to make a change over. They've asked me to look into graphical side of this package.

First, I'd like to change the background color. I'm guessing this is located in the global css file?
Second , Id like to make sure my font is readable after the background change, this is also a global change yes?
Third, I have never really been a fan of multi piece headers and it appears that space is occupied by two solid images and one small gradient set to repeat tieing into the menu. How can I change this code to give me an overall header height of 450 and retain the width so that I may create a new header.

Some basic help here would be awesome, and again thanks for this great cms.

quik edit: I forgot to ask, right now we are using phpbb3 forums on our other site, I'd like to use that instead of the ocportal default forums. How would I go about transferring all of that to my existing ocportal installation?

Marcos, Just go to Admin > Style > Theme Wizard. You can change the overall colors there.

By doing the above you should have no problems with the font colors. You may have to select the check mark to indicate weather the theme is Dark or not.

Sorry but I can't help you with this one. I am sure someone else can chime in on this.
