Solved Preview, Send, and other Buttons Not Listed in the Display Section of the Admin Panel

Post by KaizerMK on October 5th 2012, 12:47 am

Hello All,

Some Explanation: My question involves, as the title indicates, those grey rectangle buttons (that are even at the bottom of this forum when you reply) that include the Preview and Send Buttons... but are not limited to these buttons.

They include the Submit and Cancel buttons when people register... Update, Add a Member, Find a User Name, and Remove Selected buttons located in the Admin Panel for modifying a created group.


The Question: How do you change these buttons because I cannot find them in the Admin > Display section, like I did just about every other button?

I would like to know how to change all of these buttons, because on my computer, they are a light grey with white text and they are VERY difficult to read.

I don't need them to be flashy or anything, the buttons used in this forum for would work as they are grey with black text but I cannot locate this button set anywhere in the Display section to even know how to begin to change them.


Some Important Notes: I am using phpBB2 (subsilver), and the Shadow Roleplay skin by xxbraveshadowxx from Hitskin.com.

I am completely unfamiliar with CSS, so the only way I know how to get to it, is by going to the Admin Panel, then Display, then Colors, then clicking the CSS Stylesheet tab located next to the Colors Tab and that section is completely blank for me.

I don't think a screenshot should be necessary for this as a person would have to hit one of the buttons I am talking about, just to respond to this message.

Thank you in advance,

Kaiz

They have the class name of 'button2'.

So you can design it via the CSS:
Code:
.button2 {
/*CSS HERE*/
}

While I thank you for your attempt to answer my question, as I mentioned in my initial post, I am not all that familiar with CSS and the way I figured out how to access it shows it as blank so I would like specifics on what I would need to do to change all the aforementioned buttons.

Say, I wanted them to be exactly like the buttons that are in this forum... same size, grey, with black letters... how would I go about doing that exactly?

For it to be like on this forum, something like this:

.button2 {
background-color: #FAFAFA;
background-image: url(http://illiweb.com/fa/prosilver/bg_button.gif);
background-repeat: repeat-x;
color: black !important;
}

I tried this and none of the buttons appeared to have changed in anyway. If I wanted to change the "Send" button to the button just like the "Send" button here, how would I do that, and would I need to use the code over and over for every single one of these grey buttons?

If I would have to use the code repeatedly for each button, what name would I need for each of those buttons?

    font-family: Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif !important;
    overflow: visible !important;
    padding: 2px 3px !important;
    width: auto !important;
}

This had no effect on any of my buttons either. By the way, I appreciate the attempts to help me with this.

Am I supposed to change anything with the code or something like that?

Okay, I had to sign up to check some of the buttons. Try this:

input.mainoption, input.liteoption {
color: black !important;
}

That should get you what you want.
