Changing Colour of Scrolling announcement text

Post by Daisi2 on May 4th 2012, 10:16 am

Hi

I want to change the colour of the scrolling announcement text, I have gathered that I have to do it in the style sheet, however I cannot find the style sheet and have no clue how to change the colour, also I want to make the text bigger and bold.

Instruction on how to do this wuld be appreciated.

Thanks

Hello,

You can add HTML codes to do that:
Code:
<b><font color=colorhere><font size=size here>Announcement Message Here</font></b>

Make sure to change 'colorhere' , 'size here'(in number) and 'Announcement Message here'.

Hello,

Do you mean where to change it?:
Admin Panel > General > Announcements > Scroll to bottom > Modify your announcement list Edit > Add the codes & save

Make sure you add the codes to the correct place, read this guide about scrolling announcements:
http://help.forumotion.com/t38436-scrolling-announcements

Simply put the scrolling message on the 'Announcement message here' part of the code(replace it with the scrolling message on your forum)
Code:
<b><font color=colorhere><font size=size here>Announcement Message Here</font></b>

Can you provide a screenshot of the message body of your scrolling announcement?

See this forum(my test forum):
http://testzone.darkbb.com/

That's how supposed to be look like what you're saying if you added it properly.

Colour Change

Post by Daisi2 on May 4th 2012, 2:25 pm

Hi Jophy

When I follow your instructions I can see the colour changes and font perfectly and how I want it in the display section where it shows how the forum looks in the Admin Panel. However when I go to preview forum at the top and then homepage no scrolling text is shown. It just appears empty.

The code works on my test forum. Make sure HTML is activated on your forum:

Colour change announcements

Post by Daisi2 on May 4th 2012, 3:23 pm

Thank you for your help Jophy, but just wont work for me, enable html as instructions and still the same, the only way I can make the scrolled message appear on he homepage is by just typing it in without a code, I am not able to change the colour etc as it it will not appear whatever I do. I guess I will have to leave it there. Crying or Very sad

Hi,

To make it work with the code you need to disable HTML editor.

Colour change announcement

Post by Daisi2 on May 4th 2012, 3:48 pm

Thanks Nera but it still does not work for me

Ok I disable where you said and got a different box was displayed, I pasted in

<b><font color=#3980CC><font size=10>THE LOTTERY IS NOW CLOSED YOUR CHOSEN NUMBER ARE LOGGED IN THE CHOSEN NUMBER CATEGORY, ALL ENTRIES HAVE RECEIVED A SECOND RANDOMLY GENERATED NUMBER. GO CHECK YOUR NUMBERS NOW!</font></b>

Then save

Went to the homepage and it is still the same black text scrolling along and when I go back to the announcement box there is no code in there anymore just THE LOTTERY IS NOW CLOSED YOUR CHOSEN NUMBER ARE LOGGED IN THE CHOSEN NUMBER CATEGORY, ALL ENTRIES HAVE RECEIVED A SECOND RANDOMLY GENERATED NUMBER. GO CHECK YOUR NUMBERS NOW! that is all.

Sry for the caps but that is how the message is displayed.
