Change white background?

by ghswen » Thu Nov 28, 2019 9:33 pm

I'm running phpBB 3.7 and many of the styles I use are dark. From what I understand cmBB pulls it's style from the board stylesheet. If this is correct I have a question.

My default board style is "Black" many of my users use the lighter pro-silver color scheme. For most of them everything is great however a couple of the dark styles (Black-Green in particular) is very hard to read. (see screen shot)

Since cmBB pulls the style sheet from phpBB I would think it would pull the default background color also?

Here's a link to my forum if you would like to take a look.

Hmm, no, not exactly. It provides some basic (proSilver inspired) styling for which I need to define some colors as well for readability. If you want to change it, you can create a ./ext/ger/styles/black/ folder, where you can place any file to override the default styling.
