3.2.4 : Text color now too light to see in some areas

Post by jemiNii » Sat Nov 17, 2018 7:48 pm

Greetings,


I use a modified version of Prosilver - basically it is just ProSilver with the colours.css from an abandoned style and a few graphics files for borders, etc..

My issue is affecting the text(too light) in only a couple of specific areas:

The edit box in mChat:

The text on the ABBC3 bar:

Please if anyone could put me in the right direction on this I would greatly appreciate it ....


Regards,

- jemiNii


ALSO: If there is a better forum for this question - please let me know

Try it into the style forums
viewforum.php?f=471

But most of the time when you right click on the text and go to "inspect element" you see where and what you can edit.
Sorry! My English is bat ;) !!!

I tried that method and got confused at what all the lines meant that are "struckthrough".
I was guessing that maybe that code is superseded elsewhere ....

Reason I chose this forum is it is related to the upgrade and not just affecting the style but some of the extensions.

Thanks for your response ....

It would have been logical to mention that in your first post.
Use the SRT (https://www.phpbb.com/support/srt/) to give the necessary info.
A bug is a feature that hasn't made it to the manual (yet)

also seeing as how all of those are extension issues its most likely that they are not compatible with this version yet, but ultimately the only way we could help you is for you to provide links to your board and screenshot of your dev panel if you do not allow guests.

I believe my problem lies in the colours.css - the text I am referring to must be handled differently now and the old one I am using does not reference it correctly ..... Make sense to anyone else? I was hoping it would be just a slice of styling code missing - but if it is a huge slice I may have to compare the old with the new and merge them carefully .... but hoping it is simpler than that
