How do I change the default post font color?

Post by SpecialAgentGibbs on September 21st 2012, 5:14 pm

I would be very appreciative if someone might assist me in changing the default font color in posts.
My members are all older and the default grey font is difficult for some.
How can I change it to black?
I have been in to the CSS section but cannot find what line to edit.
Or, do I need to add some code to the CSS to do this?

Thank you kindly in advance Smile

ACP -> Display -> Colors

Text Color: *add your color code here*

Should help you change the Default Color.

To change the text colour is very simple & Soul Evisceration has given you the correct instructions on how to do it. You do not have to do this in CSS but you can, I suppose, if you want to but it isn't necessary.

The HexCC for black is #000000. Try that & see if it better than the grey. There are also many shades of grey right up to nearly black.

Been there, done that and it did not change the post font color hence, asking where in the CSS to do it.

That is surprising as that was the method, I was always able to use, to change the text colour or any other colour in my forum when I used phpBB3. Same with Invision.

Silly question, but did you click Save??

No need to shout.

We are giving you perfectly sensible, & correct, advice on how to achieve what you wish to do. Why it does not work for you is strange. Of course, you could always change skins or versions.

Perhaps if I rephrase the question.
Does anyone know what part of the CSS changes post font color?

Seriously Bro???
How about just giving a decent answer to the original question?
Sure would be appreciated AND would have prevented all of this rhetoric.
Too much to ask apparently.
