A couple questions

Hello Ian!

I recently installed this style on my board, and people say they're liking it. So do I; thanks a bunch!
However, there are some things that I'd like to fix to further improve the experience.

First of all, if I wanted to alter the colors, how should I go about that? Some users complained that the new style was a bit sharp on the eyes, being so white. Now, I'm not a web design guru at all, and previously I used just Prosilver that I altered slightly using ColorizeIt. That said, I know how to edit css or html files. I would like to know what values and where I should change to recolor some of the largest forum elements. I tried messing with the colours.css file a bit, but it didn't seem to have any visible effect so far, as I likely edited the values which were not what I thought them to be.

Secondly, I like that the header stays on screen when scrolling down, but it seems to be slightly bugged for me: every time I want to jump to a certain post, it gets loaded at the very top of the page, so it's partly obscured by the header. Ditto when changing a topic page: the first post loads behing the header. What can I do to fix this?

1. All colours are defined in colours.css and prolight.css - After making any edits to the style please clear your board cache in the ACP which can be found under the 'General' tab.

2. I'll have to have a deeper look at this and look at releasing an update.
