Solved (noob) I can't change the default username color?

Post by takkiemon on May 27th 2012, 1:27 am

Hello everyone,

I'm a relatively new user to Forumotion and would like help on something.
I have chosen a theme with a very dark background and the default username color is also very dark...
This is very inconvenient and i would like to know how to change it. I tried looking at Display>Pictures and colours>colours, but i was able to change most colours exept the username colours.
Please help.

Thanks in advance!
(i get the feeling this is a very noob question, sorry for that, i searched pretty much everywhere :|)

That should be your "Link" colors, as user names are links also. Smile

Thanks for the replies. I have changed the link colour to a bright yellow colour, yet it doesn't change the usernames, as shown on the screenshot.

The language is in Dutch, sorry for the inconvenience.
As you can see, the username of 'Piewkachu' is in dark blue, while the black groud is in black, which is very annoying to read.

That's possibly going to need to be changed in your CSS stylesheet then because it might have an important font color tag forcing the username to be that color otherwise the AP link color change would have changed it. You'll have to wait for one of our CSS experts to post to you about that I'm certainly not qualified.

Let me ask you this, is that member "Piewkachu" have a special rank or in any forum "Groups" that might possibly have a color assigned to it? If so that color can be changed in AP>>User & Groups>>Group Administration.

Thank you very much! this was the problem all along. I knew it was somthing as silly as this...
'Piewkachu' did have a special rank, that's why...
Thanks guys, for helping a noob like me
