Any chance someone can link me to a site that shows a breakdown of what each item controls in style management - i.e. a breakdown showing which is Table Header 3 etc? Trying to create a custom style using subsilver as a base.

Cheers

Style management is a mess. You're better off removing all the entries from there and editing the CSS itself in my experience.

phpBB knowledge base on styles might be of some help though.

I've nearly got it perfect now but there's one thing I can't get right. Have a look at the jpeg below.

Here's a comparison of what I want (and what Ixyl has):-

What I've got:-

Basically I want the bit where the text from each post appears to be white (area in square), but the main colour of the forums (circled area) to be cream. Any ideas what values to change to get that?

Using 'Table Cell Colour 2' seems to change both the post colour and the background colour (background colour meaning the main colour (circled).

Also, how do I change what logo_phpBB.gif links to?

For the logo, the URL is in /templates/subSilver/overall_header.tpl, as:
<td><a href="{U_INDEX}"><img src="templates/subSilver/images/logo_phpBB.gif" border="0" alt="{L_INDEX}" vspace="1" /></a></td>
Change that to whatever you want. However, it can be just as easy to overwrite logo_phpBB.gif with the logo you want.

While you're in overall_header, you'll see the CSS is copied in there as well - you can delete everything between

<style type="text/css">

and </style> as it's already linked to in the external stylesheet. You might want to cut it out though because this gives you the explanation of how the styles in Style Management apply to the page elements. And you're right - the background colour and second row colour are the same entry, which is ridiculous, as is much of the nonsense which goes on in there.
/* Main table cell colours and backgrounds */
td.row1 { background-color: {T_TR_COLOR1}; }
td.row2 { background-color: {T_TR_COLOR2}; }
td.row3 { background-color: {T_TR_COLOR3}; }
/* This is the border line & background colour round the entire page */
.bodyline { background-color: {T_TD_COLOR2}; border: 1px {T_TH_COLOR1} solid; }
Simple way to do it is to detach the background-color - edit either the header CSS if you're keeping it, or the external subSilver.css file, and just force background-color to whatever values you want - e.g. #fff / white. Then you can still edit the settings within the admin panel to adjust the row colours.

As you become more adept though, it's far easier to abort the panel in Style Management, remove all entries, and make up a completely fresh attempt at the CSS - remove all the {T_} type entries (though leave the real curly braces!) and put in the actual colours/settings you want.

What anonymity levels of HTTP proxy servers exist?
1. Transparent - these proxies are not anonymous. They don't hide IP-address of a client and let a web server know that you are surfing through a proxy server. The task of such proxies, as a rule, is information caching and/or support of Internet access for several computers via single connection. Such proxies are not applicable for security and privacy while surfing on net. You can use them only for network speed improvement.
2. Anonymous - these proxies don't show your real IP but change the request fields so it is very easy to detect that you are using proxy.
3. High Anonymous - these proxy servers do not pass an IP-address of a client and don't send any variables indicating that you are using proxy server to host and look like real browser.
