Text Does Not Show Easily On Background....

Post by Alexis1987 on January 13th 2011, 6:40 am

Hello, there. I'm experiencing this ONE problem with my forum and I can't solve it for the life of me.

Skin: Graphic Design
Version: phpbb3

The problem is this:



and on my portal page:



The text is too dark for the background. Some of my members are getting on in age and can't see it at all. Is there anyway to change this? I would preferably like to change the text color...but failing that I don't mind changing the background color. Some help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

To edit the text colour on your portal page go to Admin Panel>Display>Pictures & colors>Colors & text size>Text color>edit colour>Click Save. This is the same page where you can also change the background colour.

Re your first question. I presume it is the field under the members' avatars where you want to edit the text colour. If you do not want to change your background colour you can edit this text in Users & Groups. Use Advanced mode for this if you haven't already. Go to Users>Fields>Modify whichever text you want to change>Click Save.

Thank you for the response. With respect to changing the text color on the portal page, I tried that. It only changes the text color of the posts and such - not the color of those headings.

As to changing the color of the name under the Avatar pic...what I have is Users And Groups>Profile>...but there is nothing to change there that affects it. I heavily suspect this theme might very well need a bit of CSS code to alter.

And yes, I have cleared my cache and cookies etc. and tried again. *Sigh* Once again, thanks for the response and effort.

Now, anyone else? Crying or Very sad

I actually went and started from scratch in case with all the modifications I did I messed something up. Obviously I didn't as even on a clean slate the problem is there. I really like the Graphic Design skin - a lot. It's just that ONE thing about it that seems to have needed a little more thought.

Test Forum

See the dark text where it says: PLEASE ENTER YOUR USERNAME AND PASSWORD TO LOG IN.

REGISTER

etc?

EDIT: Should I post a copy of my CSS in case anyone might know of some kind of code edit to change that heading color?

@joybells: when you modify the color there it only changes the color of the FIELDS. What I need is perhaps a bit of code to change the TITLE color on those pages as that is the black bit. Not the profile's fields.

Ok after browsing through the forum I did find this bit of code...

.postprofile {
color: #ffffff;}

Copy and paste it into your css code.

It helped with the user names, but the administrator names and moderators didnt change, I'm assuming the code has to be edited for them.....if anyone knows what it is, let me know please, otherwise I'll keep looking...

Ok i inspected the page element and located the code to this portion

Style Attribute {
color: #009;
}

But I assume this is html, is there a way to convert this too css?

ok i figured it out, first you post the initial part I mentioned earlier into the css

Then you have to modify the color of moderators seperately.
It's in users and groups>groups>group administration, pick the moderator group then you can change the color.
