Re: What do you guys think? ....how do I change the font col

Wow, Ive done some more work and the site is looking great...!!!!

http://www.astronomertalk.com


I'm also wondering if anyone knows how I can change to default light blue background to all the categories, and the background of the header. Was hoping to make it a dark violet/blue color.

Thanks,
JB

have you looked at all the available styles you can choose from?

there is also the colorize it tool for changing the colors of prosilver etc.

check out the styles section here.

hi, so I tried to change the "category color" to dark blue and kinda got it.

http://www.astronomertalk.com

Whatever I do I cant get the top part to be dark blue, just the button park. Does anyone know what code I should edit for the top part.

If you can see with the arrows, the top is light blue, while the bottom is dark blue. I have the code for the dark blue, but do not know where to put it...

Thanks,
JB

what is also weird is when I "refresh" the page, the whole thing appears dark blue, but then goes back to the top half light blue and the bottom half dark blue.

you are dealing with images and colors both.

you should remove the background images for those areas in the colours.css file then what is left will be the background color you have chosen.

Hi Robert,

Sorry you got a newbie here. any chance you could go a little more "step by step." i.e. where is the color.css and how do i remove the background images.... Also, would this be the same way I could do it for the header background?


best,
JB

using your ftp only,
download the prosilver/theme/colours.css file to your computer.

using a good text editor ONLY, open that file.

find this:

Code: Select all

.forabg {
	background-color: #0076b1;
	background-image: url("{T_THEME_PATH}/images/bg_list.gif");
}
remove this:

Code: Select all

.forabg {
	background-image: url("{T_THEME_PATH}/images/bg_list.gif");
}
save the file, and upload back and refresh your theme from the admin panel styles section.

that should be the same place that you changed the bottom background color to the dark blue. if not then exactly how did you change the color of the bottom section.

therein lies your problem.

making edits there in the admin panel are only temporary.

as I said , the proper way( and the only way to make sure they will stick) is to download the relevant file to your computer. edit it using your text editor. upload back.

then you MUST refresh your style components from the admin panel styles tab.


if you do it any other way, it does not work correctly and you will keep having problems.

you need to make the change for the background to the actual file just like you did to the temporary copy in the admin panel.

then, go back and change what I showed you above for the forabg section.

change the background color to whatever your dark blue color is and remove the part about the background image.

save the file, upload it back,

refresh the theme for prosilver.

refresh your browser.

if it does not work then do not change it back before you tell us so we can see what you have done.

according your file here:
http://www.astronomertalk.com/styles/pr ... olours.css

you have made no changes to the anything or you changed them back.

Im still confused how to make changes to the actual file. ive been reading some how to edit the file for "dummies," but it does not seem to work. Im using a mac, how exactly would I do it. Im particularly interested in adding a background image

what is hard about this? you use a ftp program to connect to your server where your board files are.

filezilla is good, google for it.

then you find the files I showed you above and download them to your computer.

there are several MAC text editors that will work, google for them.

use your text editor to open and edit the file.

save it,
use ftp to upload back where you got it from.

follow the instructins above about refreshing things.

you are done.
