    Hi guys,

    I'm trying to sort out a website using a Joomla! installation on a Ubuntu server. I have everything up and running now, and I've installed a nice template. However, I wish to tweak this template and remove the bottom section of it. How on earth do I go about doing such a thing?

    The site itself is here:

    http://solihull.servehttp.com/~ray/

    As you can see, I've tweaked a few things such as colours and images from my basic knowledge of html, but that's as far as I can get!

    Reps for any help ;)

    are you referring to the "rockettheme" listed below? this will depend on if that image is part of the main template. i am still learing the coding of PHP. and the looks of it its attached to it. if you right click on the area you are looking to remove, and go to properties, it would say a certain path with a file.png as an example. since i am a newbie as well, i dont know if you can or not..

    Just the area underneath that, it's the dark blue and then the reflected blue bit that I want to get rid of. What can I do?

    Replace the CSS file on your server with the one I've attached. Remember to remove the ".txt" part I added to the filename because of attachment restrictions.

    If you go to line 231 in the CSS file there's a bit of code:

    Code:
    div#footer .rk-2 {
        background: url(../images/footer-l.png) 0 0 no-repeat;
        height: 105px;
        overflow: hidden;
    }
    
    Code:
    div#footer .rk-2 {
        background: url(../images/footer-l.png) 0 0 no-repeat;
        height: 105px;
        overflow: hidden;
        [B]display: none;[/B]
    }
    
    I just added one line at the end. So in the future if you want to go back to the default template, just remove that last bolded line. :)

    Wow man, that is EXACTLY what I wanted. If I could give you a super-cookie I would. I'll have to spread some rep around before I can give any more out to you!

    Thank you!!
