So you want to edit your forums look but you cant find the right template. No problem as long as you know some HTML. vBulletin comes with a option that will add the template name at the beginning and end of every template rendered. To trun this on go to the vBulletin options part of your CP. Under Templates trun on Add template name in comments. Now when you view the source of any page the name of the template will be displayed before and after the block of HTML code it contains.

Note: trun this option off after you are done to save bandwidth.

It would be a VERY popular tutorial im sure!!!!....would it be a huge ask for someone to write?? Would it take a long time???

Adding on to that, you can also use the template search engine: in the admin CP, go to Templates > Search, and type in a small unique bit of the string (not a dynamic part like a username, but a static part like "Last Post by:".
