Chatbox default font color

In progress Chatbox default font color

Post by JAN2XONLINE on March 13th 2013, 6:13 am

In my chatbox, the default color is white because the forum's text color is white but is it possible to change the default color just in the chatbox to other colors? Coz my chatbox background color is a light color and it is hard to read the messages. I don't want to change the background color of my chatbox though. Please help.

Well, the default font color that is selected is white for your forum. Thats why it comes as white. If i give you a code, it will change the color for all the messages in the display area, irrespective of the colors they choose.

So there is no other way to change the default color just in the chatbox?

After taking a look at the phpBB2 CSS for the chatbox, it doesn't seem there's a way to change the default user font colour, but it MAY be different in phpBB3 (I'm doubtful though). This means that a basic CSS edit to change the default colour MAY not be possible. But I hope someone more experienced wil prove me wrong.. heh. It would suck if that were the case.

HOWEVER, I have found the colour options to change the standard text (time stamps, semicolon between name and text, and "Online/Away" in the side bar)

I will post them anyway just incase you need them.


This is for the "Online/Away" tag on the side.
Code:
#chatbox_members .member-title {
   text-align: center;
   padding: 0.5em 0.25em;
   background-image: none;
   font-size: 12px;
   background-color: #SIDE BAR FONT COLOUR;
   color : #FONT COLOUR HEX;
   font-family: Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
   }

And this is for the timestamps and semicolon between messages:
Code:
div#chatbox {
   color: #007799;
   }

When I left just those in the CSS, my ipod seemed to become a bit slower at reaching the chatbox to join/post. BUT, my ipod is pretty glitchy anyway. I could still join from my laptop just fine.

Your members could change the color with the color changer.
