Solved Text color issue

Post by ENDO on August 11th 2009, 12:57 am

Hey there. The text on my page is really hard to read because the background is black, and the text is gray. Im looking to change it to white for obvious reasons. So I looked back a few pages here and found a post similar to mine, and this is what I got. "ACP=>Display Tab=>Pictures and Colors=>Colors=>Colors and text size=>Text Color=>Change html color=>Save" Witch is simple and makes sence, but for some reason when I click the colors tab all it brings up is my CSS stylsheet. I don't see any "colors and text sizes" or "text color". Here is a link to my forums. http://endomotosport.forumotion.com/index.htm

Any help would be great. Thanks folks.

look for something that has


Code:
color:grey;

in it, it should be near the top of your style sheet. should have something like...
Code:

Body
{
background-color:black;
font-type:times-new-roman;
color:grey;
}
change the grey to white

( I believe I typed that out right, i'm fairly new with CSS someone can edit this if it's wrong)

Cool deal. Thanks Steve. All my colors show up in code, and I'm not sure what the code is for white. Any ideas? Thanks

Hello,

You can change color by adding this code in the CSS Stylesheet...

Code:
body {
color : white !important;
}

Just add this code there and submit.

Ok so "white !important;" worked on most of what I was looking to change. After a few changes this came up.

Detected error
We have counted a different number of "{" and of "}". It means your CSS risks to be not valid and will not be posted correctly on your forum.

We advise you to reread your code.

Not sure where I went wrong. ????

Also my topic titles are all goofed up when you go the thread. The title runs in to the border line. Does this have anything to do with the error warning i got? I read all the topic related font sizes, and none of them seem to be out of the ordinary witch is what I figured would cause this.

There must be some problem with starting and ending braces.
Check that all code start with { and ends with }.

Awesome. That worked to get rid of the warning. Thanks ankllien.

Now my only two issues I have are: All the text on the forum home page is white like I want, but when you go to a thread they are still gray. I've changed everything to white that I know how to. Is there a completely different area to change the thread/post text color? The titles are gray too.

Also if you go to the link provided below take a look at the thread topic. As mentioned earlier it runs into the border pretty bad. How can I either shrink the text to fit or expand the width of the bar?

Again thank you very much for your help.

To change post text color...

Code:
.postbody {
color : white;
}

To change link colors...

Code:
a:link {
color : white;
}

To change size of thread title...

Code:
h1.cattitle {
font-size : 12px;
}
