Hy Ries,

I remarked an obscurance that might concern your problem too:

in constant-editor or in mm_manager you can set an own template-set.
This is a copie of the folder ext/mm_forum/res/template and saved in 

I changed the CSS there through mm_manager but didn't suceed because the 
template is searched for in folder ext/mm_forum/res/template too.
So I copied the content of folder to ext/mm_forum/res/template.
Afterwards my CSS was found.
It's buggy to have the same folder two times in different places but it 

Perhaps it works for the pics too.

Best Regards
