Solved Problems changing administrator font colors

Post by Nephilim2001 on July 6th 2012, 2:19 am

Hi guys

I'm new to the forum and I come here with a little problem.

(I apologize if this question has been answered before, but the search gave me no hits on the issue)

My problem is that I can't seem to be able to change the administrator font color. The theme I've chosen for my forum requires me to change the color because it's a little too dark ontop of the already dark color of my forum theme background. Making it hard to read.

I go to the Admin. Panel, from there I go to the Display tab. Choose 'colors' on the left side menu and find the 'administrator font color'.

Problem is that it's set to a basic white (#ffffff) but on my forum my admin. name is showing as a dark blue. I change the color to a light green but still it's showing as dark blue. Even after I save the settings and the admin panel is updated to the green, the forum displays the same dark blue color.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks
Neph

In the group section did you click on that white box and change the color with the dot and click the green check mark. If so then make sure that the box under that color is checked. It should say "Color Group Usernames"

Be sure to click save at the bottom right when you are done

Hi,

There is 2 ways to change the settings for that but the one i think you will need will be this one.

STEP 1
Go to ACP >>
Users & Groups Tab at the tip of your ACP >>


Groups >> Group Administration >>
Click on Administrators you will see a box come down
Group Members Color : Change the color to what you want
Color Group Members : [X] tick the box
Group status : Closed group
SAVE


STEP 2
Ok for this step if you have only Admin and mods setting then this maybe the one you need to change
ACP >> Display Tab at the top of your forum's ACP>>

Pictures and Colors >> Colors
In Colors and text size part of the settings look for
Administrator Font Color : Change the color there and then SAVE

This is how you should get the change you want.


I Hope this was of some help to you.
