Solved Header bars on portal page too dark.

Post by Castellana on October 18th 2012, 1:47 am

Hello.

I need some help with my portal and index pages.

Here is the portal:
http://cvas.forumotion.com/portal

The problem is that the header bars are too dark. These are the charcoal gray bars that say things like "Search" "Links we like" and "Latest topics". They are impossible to read in this dark color but I can't figure out how to change it. The same thing on the Index page.

I'd like to learn how to change this color to a lighter color and/or change the words to a brighter color. Like the user "Deb" shown in a bright green.

Thank you.

Admin pannel>Display>Pictures and colors>Manage pictures>extended mode> If you scroll down you see under your background picture
Background picture (Row title)
Background picture (Row category left)
Background picture (Row category right)
That do you have to change.


I hope that this is what you need c:

Yes, that was it!

I changed the background from almost black to one of the examples, which is a light blue. Is there a way for me to access other colors besides the examples?

Thank you, Lizlee! Hello

Which color you want to change, please post a screenshot. Maybe, its possible via css.

Thank you. If the examples are the colors that come with the overall color scheme of the forum "skin" that we are using, then those are fine. There are three, and they all seem to be a light gray, which is fine.

I just thought I'd have access to an infinite range of colors (like we do for posting) and wanted to try different ones.

Is there a quick tutorial of how to get a screen shot?
Do you want a shot of the Portal page or something else?
Sorry, I'm new to this but can usually figure things out once they are explained! Very Happy
Thanks!

Just put a arrow on the image, of where you want to change the color.

The problem in my original post is solved. The light gray color is fine and I think now that questions about other colors do not make sense. When I learn more about how all this works, I might revisit the subject via a new topic.
Very Happy Thank you for all your help!
