Changing Text Color
« on: June 26, 2011, 04:50:44 pm »
How can I change the Board Text to a different color? The default I have now is white, but what if I wanted to change it to say..blue, how would I do this? I guess the same question also goes to changing the Username displayed above the avatar to the same color as well, or any other color for that matter.

Please post your forum url when asking for support.   It helps us a lot in helping you out.

It'll take a couple of simple css edits (if you are using a custom stylesheet)

By Board text do you mean the Board's title?

For the Users Name at the top of posts in the poster profile area:

find:

Code: [Select]
.poster h4, .poster h4 a
{
color: #c06002;
}

Change the color code to what you want.

To change the color of the Board Title:
Find this in the css and change the color code:
Code: [Select]
/* the board title! */
.table_list tbody.content td.info
a.subject
{
 font-weight: bold;
 font-size:
110%;
 color: #d97b33;
}

Your Board Titles look grey on my end.   If you meant to say the Category Header titles do a search thruout the css for catbg then change the color code to the color you want.  It'll need to be done in several places in the css.

Before doing any of these changes I would first check your PM box as I replied to yours and gave you some information about the style you are using.

Comic Books Text currently set at White. I'd like to change it to Blue
And underneath Comic Book Title where it says Talk about DC, which is a grey color, I'd like to change that to White.


For Board Title, I'm guessing that's the one that these topics fall under?

The Lobby, Home Entertainment Center, etc -   those are Categorys.
To change that font color you need to change the font color for catbg thruout the css.
Off-Topic, Introduce Yourself, etc -  those are the Board Titles.
To change their font color do as I stated in the post above.
 
The "Talk about DC" text you are referring to is the Subject.
I need to go check the css again to refresh my memory on where to change that.

You can change that font color but it will change it to white in several other places.   You can try it and set it back if you dont like it.

find this in the css - change the font color to #fff; for white
Code: [Select]
/* use dark grey for the text, leaving black for headers etc */
body, td, th, tr
{
 color: #7f7f7f;
}

Okay, I see the CSS now. But what to do now that I'm here? Do I just drop the code from the previous post in there or am I suppose to swap put a code?

Okay, I swapped out the colors to see what it looked like. It did what I wanted...kinda. As you mentioned it did change more than I wanted. I liked the white color for the description. But I would like to be able to keep the white for the description while also being able change the rest of the text to a different color: Baby Blue or some color close to that.


I switched back to the original color for the time being till I get your input.

Okay.   Follow the directions that I gave you for changing the color of the Board Title to change it to the color you want. 
To change the color of the Description of the Board to white (under the Board title) add this directly under the code for the Board Title
Code: [Select]

.table_list tbody.content td.info p
{
color: #fff;
}

Can you double check on those codes you gave me? I'm trying to change the Description Text to white using the code you told me to swap in. But when I'm done doing so, the entire board itself, along with the Description Text turns white.


FYI, I'm using the Prince Of Darkness Theme if that helps.

You sure you used the correct edit since I posted several for different things?

I'll repost what you need to do to change the Board Title to white.   That is the only thing it will change.

To change the color of the Board Title:
Find this in the css and change the color code:
Code: [Select]
/* the board title! */
.table_list tbody.content td.info
a.subject
{
 font-weight: bold;
 font-size:
110%;
 color: #d97b33;
}
