Solved Unable to change font color for user details (phpbb2)

Post by Cú Chulainn on August 23rd 2015, 1:13 am

Hello everyone!

I have a problem with text color, which I cannot fix, no matter what I try. On the screenshot below you can see that lines naming users details (i.e. age, gender, birthday) are colored black, which ends up in them being invisible on the black backgroud.

First pic shows forum post, the other - user profile. I highlighted a line of black text on each screen to make it clearer.

First thing I have tried was changing literally each and every color into red in:
[Admin Panel -> Display -> Colors]
One by one. Did not help.

Then I was doing my best to input the CSS code. This was my first time using CSS. Based on various tutorials (including some on this very forum) I checked out a number of lines/commands, but nothing helped. In my defensse - I managed to fix a couple of things, like the line separating topic title from the actual message. Razz

Going further, I have tried to randomly install a number of different themes from Hitskin and for all of these that font color was still black, although it shouldn't. I have also checked it on another computer and two different brewsers to rule out my browser/comp as a cause of the problem. Same stuff happens.

Could anyone advise how can I change that color to simple FF0000 red? It would mean the world to me, as this would be the final fix needed to open the forum.

Forum is based on phpbb2, browser used Chrome. Tested on another comp on Chrome and Opera.

Long days and pleasant nights,

Hi @Cú Chulainn,

To change that color you need to modify the color of each profile field. You can do that under Users and Groups > Profiles > Edit profile field > Adjust color with the paint bucket next to the field name.

If you want a method that's a little less tedious, you can also change the color with some CSS. Add the following rule under Display > Colors > CSS stylesheet
Code:
span.label > span, dl > dt > span {
  color:#FFF !important;
}

FFF is shorthand hex for white ( FFFFFF ), you can change it to whatever color you like.

Thank you kind Sir or Madam. Smile

I feel rather ashamed of not looking into the very source of the issue. The CSS command I will surely use, saves quite a bit of time.

Thousans blessings to you,
Cu

//edit:
It works. Smile
