Link to my forum: Test forum only
SMF version: SMF ver 2.1.4
TP version: TP ver 3.0.0
Default Forum Language: English
Theme name and version: Default SMF Curve2
Browser Name and Version: Brave 1.62.156
Mods installed: None. All screens are fresh installs with no settings changed other than described below.
Related Error messages: None.

After a fresh install of TP with no settings changed, the front page looks like this.

All Panel styles are set to this default setting

Then I change all Panel styles to this setting with no other changes.

Now the Front Page looks like this with a continuous blue background in the top row of title bars across the full width of the page.

When in the forum, we see the same continuous blue in the top bar across the page.

Next I want to remove the Center panel and mix in articles with forum topics on the Front Page. So I add an article and set it to display on Front Page. Now we have a different style of title bar displayed for the article.

The article has been left at its default setting of "Use frame and title style from theme". All the category settings are at their defaults.

I can't figure out how to get articles to display on the Front Page using the same "catbg+windowbg" style as all the blocks and in the forum. The goal is to have a uniform look and continuous blue title bars in the top row across the full width of the page. Anyone know how to do this?

Check the settings under Settings & Frontpage > Frontpage

Tried the settings as shown in your snip but it remains the same - the article has a different style bar. Tried changing to a few other settings in the drop downs but couldn't find a combination that changes the article title bar. The changes do affect the forum title bar displayed on the front page, but not the article title bar.

@rjen

Sorry, thought you were looking for the forum topics setting.

I don't think there is a setting that allows you to change it. It will require a code edit...

Yep, may be a nice feature for a new version. I will put it on the backlog...

For now, if you reaaly need it, you can change this part in TPsubs.template.php

Find
// decide the header style, different for forumposts
    $usetitlestyle = in_array($context['TPortal']['article']['frame'], array('theme', 'title'));
    $useframestyle = in_array($context['TPortal']['article']['frame'], array('theme', 'frame'));
$divheader = isset($context['TPortal']['article']['boardnews']) ? $context['TPortal']['boardnews_divheader'] : 'title_bar';
$headerstyle = isset($context['TPortal']['article']['boardnews']) ? $context['TPortal']['boardnews_headerstyle'] : 'titlebg';
$divbody = isset($context['TPortal']['article']['boardnews']) ? $context['TPortal']['boardnews_divbody'] : ($usetitlestyle ? 'windowbg noup' : 'windowbg');
$showtitle = in_array('title', $context['TPortal']['article']['visual_options']);


And change to
// decide the header style, different for forumposts
    $usetitlestyle = in_array($context['TPortal']['article']['frame'], array('theme', 'title'));
    $useframestyle = in_array($context['TPortal']['article']['frame'], array('theme', 'frame'));
$divheader = isset($context['TPortal']['article']['boardnews']) ? $context['TPortal']['boardnews_divheader'] : 'cat_bar';
$headerstyle = isset($context['TPortal']['article']['boardnews']) ? $context['TPortal']['boardnews_headerstyle'] : 'catbg';
$divbody = isset($context['TPortal']['article']['boardnews']) ? $context['TPortal']['boardnews_divbody'] : ($usetitlestyle ? 'windowbg tp_block21' : 'windowbg');
$showtitle = in_array('title', $context['TPortal']['article']['visual_options']);

Beautiful. Now the articles and forum topics on the front page have similar styling. Makes a big difference. Thank you @rjen.
