How to Change phpBay Pro Background Colors

5 May 2009 7 Comments

Back in March I did a post called "How To Make Money With phpBay Pro".  Some folks have realized it's potential and jumped on it and are making easy money already!

I'm not just saying that either folks... Many of you that visit this blog already have a blog of some sort.  If you ever realize what you can do with the Ebay Partner Entwork and phpBay Pro, you'll probably slap yourself and wished you had gotten it a long time ago!

Anyway, a buddy of mine has purchased it and was wondering how to change the color scheme for the header and footer.  When you install phpBay, the default colors are kind of bland and I like to match the colors with the colors of the blog I'm using it at.  When you watch the video below, you'll see what I'm talking about.

It's a pretty simple process and some of you probably already know how to do this sort of thing, but I realize some of you don't.

In the video I mention a couple of different things that I need to explain.  One thing I talk about is Infohound Color Schemer.  Infohound is a great website to help you find colors for your blogs or websites.  After you figure out what color you want for your phpBay header and/or footer, just grab the color code.  You will see how to do that in the video.

Secondly, you will need to naviagate to the two files that contain the color codes for the phpBay header and footer.  By using your file manager in Cpanel (or whatever ftp program you use to edit with) find the two files below.



Those to files will be in this section:   wp-content/plugins/phpBay/forms

If you have problems and can't figure it out, just Contact Me or comment below and I'll do what I can to get you through it.

And if you haven't purchased phpBay Pro, I hope you realize it's potential and give it shot!  You'll be glad you did!

    @ Luis – Kind of the same… Amazon only has a 24 hour cookie. Ebay is 7 days!!! If I were going to recommend someone to EPN, I would recommend phpBay instead of BANS!
