Thanks all so far for all the tremendous help i got ^^ but got 1 more minor issue i can't seem to find out where to change:

on my forums: www.digital-alliance-forums.net i got the style buziness_board, and it finally works all well, except for 1 minor problem:

http://www.digital-alliance-forums.net/ ... =19&t=2911

The default font color is too grey to contrast with the background, and after searching / letting someone else search neither of us found out where exactly to change the code for the font color, so i can set it to another color, which will result in every text on the forums being changed to that color automatically, as well as future posts getting that color.

Thanks alot in advance for the help ^^ just ask me if u want me to post the code of any files of the style

re-edit: found out i can assign colors to usergroups and users in the admin section so that's dealt with, now it's just still the font color issue

open colours.css

search:

Code: Select all

.content {
	color: #333333;
}
replace with:

Code: Select all

.content {
	color: #000000;
}
search:

Code: Select all

a:link	{ color: #737373; }
a:visited	{ color: #737373; }
a:hover	{ color: #3086C5; }
a:active	{ color: #0096FF; }
replace with:

Code: Select all

a:link	{ color: #ff; }
a:visited	{ color: #ccc; }
a:hover	{ color: #000; }
a:active	{ color: #105289; }
search:

Code: Select all

html, body {
	color: #737373;
	background-color: #373f41;
	background-image: url("{T_THEME_PATH}/images/bg_body.gif");
}
replace with:

Code: Select all

html, body {
	color: #ffffff;
	background-color: #373f41;
	background-image: url("{T_THEME_PATH}/images/bg_body.gif");
}
search:

Code: Select all

#search-box a:active, .navbg a:active, .forumbg .header a:active, .forabg .header a:active, th a:active {
	color: #C8E6FF;
}
after add:

Code: Select all

.navbar a:hover {
  color: #0096FF;
}
after that refresh your theme ( acp -> styles -> themes -> refresh )
And after that you must be able to read all the fonts without any problems :)

dunno, did it all & still looks the same :/ maybe the letters are a bit darker, not sure though

if i'd say wanna change all text to yellow in posts, what part would i need to change again (not going to change it to yellow :p just for future reference)

what i also forgot to ask, under every forum link (or whatever u call it on main page) it says Moderators: XXXX (the group names thus), is thre a way to get rid of that line?

Refresh your theme and you browser.
The links, post text, hover colour etc are different :)

That would be ;

Code: Select all

    .content {
    	color: #000000;
    }

ACP -> Load settings -> Enable display of moderators -> No .
