Trying to change color of text

Post by CapnHowdy on December 15th 2011, 8:56 pm

Hello!

I have been trying to change the color of my text in my forum. I go to the "Colors" page in the Display page of the Administration section. I change the color, press the save button -- it even changes in the little preview window and after I save my changes, it gives me the "Your change has been made" alert...

...but then I go to the forum and nothing has changed.

I've even tried to tool around with the CSS sheet (I have no idea what I'm doing, but I've copied/pasted things from threads that are supposed to change sizes of fonts, etc.) but nothing seems to change my forum appearance.

Again, I AM pressing the save buttons to save the changes.

I only get two results:

1. Nothing changes on the actual website.
2. It changes my forum's skin so it's all wacky and not how it's supposed to look.

What am I missing?

If it helps, my forum is at http://ms-bcell.forumotion.com/ and it's phpBB2.

Thank you to anyone that can point me in the right direction Smile

What certain color you want to change? Because you need to use CSS Stylesheet to change colors of something... Wink

To begin with, I'd like to change the text color to white (I think the gray text is too hard to read on the black bg).

If I have to change it through CCS, can you point me towards a "dummies guide" of CCS, somewhere that lists ways to make simple changes?

Thanks!

Yes -- within the threads...

But one the front page, the lines underneath the categories are still gray. And I'd like to change the category title colors too.

I'd like the title/subtitle of the forum to be white.

Basically, I want to get rid of all the gray text on the forum Smile

Try to add in your CSS Stylesheet:
Code:
.secondarytitle, .secondarytitle h2{
  color: #FFF !important;
}

table.forumline tbody tr th[nowrap="nowrap"][width="50"] {
  color: #FFF !important;
}

table.forumline tbody tr th[nowrap="nowrap"][width="150"] {
  color: #FFF !important;
}

a{
color: #FFF !important;
}

a:visited{
color: #FFF !important;
}

I added it to my CSS stylesheet, pressed save, and it didn't change anything.

I don't get it.
