Background color wont change.

Post by briztian »

I have read many posts and followed many guides but am still unable to change the background color. I have changed the background color in both the colours.css and common.css and even deleted the background color entry in common. I have refreshed the forum theme and my browser countless times. Any suggestions.

The forum http://briztian.com/forum, If you are seeing a white background, I don't want white. If you see gray than tell me why I can't see gray.

Where are you changing it, in the ACP or the actual file?

If it is in the ACP, then when you refresh the themes you are erasing your edit, as those are stored in the database and refreshing the themes clears the cache in the database.

What line of code are you editing ?
What white part do you want to change?
There is the outer page that is white and the inner by the forum that is white.

The page CSS says the outer is still white

Code: Select all

body {
background-color:#FFFFFF;
border-left:0 solid #333333;
border-right:0 solid #333333;
color:#8C8D91;
margin:0;
padding:0;
}

I was changing it in the css files. This is what the edited files look like.

In colours.css

Code: Select all

html, body {
	color: #536482;
	background-color: #333333;
In common.css I removed the "background-color" tag but it didn't help.

Code: Select all

body {
	/* Text-Sizing with ems: http://www.clagnut.com/blog/348/ */
	font-family: Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
	color: #828282;

That was one of two files I tried modifying. No matter what I changed it didn't actually fix the background color problem. Thanks though.
