How do I change certain Background/text colours?
« on: September 19, 2007, 03:23:14 am »
I have recently started modifications on a theme called 'The Risen - Wow'
The forum backgrounds where white, which didn't suit the rest of the theme (dark), so I decided to invert the colours, with the background black and the text white. I have managed to change certain areas by altering the style.css file. Currently only some of the backgrounds have changed even though i changed every white colour to black (FFFFFF -> 000000) in the style.css file. I cannot seem to find where to change certain areas (look at the screenshots).

I use version 1.1.2 and have the tinyportal mod.

Could you please help me in locating exactly where to change these certain areas, which im guessing is in the style.css file.

Any help is really appreciated.  :) I'll help out with/create any graphics art in return.  ;D

What are you talking about? I don't need any help with logos. I need to know the location in the style.css file of where to change those certain background areas to black/grey or white.

As for your first screenshot, it appears you are wanting to know how to change the text color that appears in a post:

Keep in mind that altering these sections of code will also alter other areas of your forum that are linked to that same code. It is linked to the following areas of text:

a) post text
b) text used on new post/no new post legend
c) date/time post was made that appears at the top of the post while it is being viewed
d) default news fader text
e) 90% of the text in your admin panel

Edit your css code and look for the following:

Code: [Select]
/* By default (td, body..) use verdana in black. */
body, td, th , tr
{
color: #000000;
font-size: small;
font-family: verdana, sans-serif;
}

Change the "color" to the color you are wanting to use, click save, then refresh your entire browser.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Next screenshot:

The box you have indicated is called the windowbg area and when that code is altered will affect the following areas of your forum:

a) The box on the main page that shows # of topics/posts
b) When viewing list of topics, the area that shows "replies" and "Views"
c) a portion of the text on your main Admin CP page.

Edit your css code and look for the following:

Code: [Select]
/* Alternating backgrounds for posts, and several other sections of the forum. */
.windowbg
{
color: #000000;
background-color: #ECEDF3;
}

Change the "color" to the color you are wanting to use. Click Save, then refresh your entire browser.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The last screenshot:


The text on your profile page is black by default. You have changed an area in your css code to white that also alters that area. You need to go back through what you have changed until you find the area that affects the text in that area and either change it back to black or change it to another color other than white so the text will show up.

Thank you very much! :) I've managed to get it all working and have now changed it to the default theme. Check it out at: http://clanpox.isgreat.org
The only thing I haven't found yet is the text colour for the Intro words in the top-right hand corner :P (Screen shot 3).
Is there anything I can do for you in return? Such as a make you a banner or signature of some kind. ;D

Sibyl came up with a way to change that but I dont remember how she did it. You will have to wait until she comes back - which is supposed to be sometime in October.
