(solved) how to change colors of the "new topic" bars?

Post by JAN8 » Fri Nov 05, 2010 11:13 am


I have changed the color of the gradient.gif image and the background of the main forum bar in css...
It works ok, but when I open a new topic the colors are being replaced with the default ones.

I'd kindly like to know how can I change the color of the heading titles(1), the font color for users (2),
the background for the new topic bar(3) and the color of the gradient and hover, in the new topic bar(4).

Many thanks and have a good day.

In colours.css
  1. li.header dt, li.header dd | /* Links on gradient backgrounds */
  2. ACP -> users and groups -> manage groups -> administrators -> settings -> group colour
  3. .forabg | .forumbg
  4. ul.forums | .bg1|.bg2 | li.row:hover

This is what I have:

li.header dt, li.header dd {
color: #FFFFFF;

And I changed it to this:

li.header dt, li.header dd {
color: #000000;
It never changed it.

it is currently black , however, the hover color is still blue.
right above the line you changed, see this one:
a:hover { color: #D31141; }
change that to black as well and see how it works.

I'm baaaaaccckkkk. still doing work on donation basis. PM your needs.
