Okay, I got both the Headers and Description colors set the way I want.  :)


Next up, how do I change the default color to white (#fff) when making thread post(s). It's currently set to a default grey which makes it hard to read on black background.

Change the font color here:
Code: [Select]
.inner
{
 padding: 1em 1em 2px 0;
 margin: 0 1em 0 0;
 border-top: solid 1px #6F5C45;
 color: #7F7F7F;
}

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.



A little unclear about this. Are you saying that Category's code is scattered throughout the CSS code and that I will have to go in a change the color more than once?

}


I've been scrolling looking for this. Can't find it. Is the code near the top, middle or end of overall CSS?

You are scrolling through the css to find things????????????      Why aren't you doing a search?     Use your browsers search feature and type  .inner      It'll find it for you fast.

How and where do I use the search function for CSS? I know how to use the search function for the main forum, but never knew about searching within CSS codes.

It looks good but I like the current style you already have in place. Will this affect current look that I have if your changing some of the codes on your end?

Yes.   You will have to search thru the CSS for every occurance of catbg and change the current color to the color you want.   
I would be careful about changing too many of the styles colors to white however as it could wnd up with a lot of white text on black and hard on the eyes.    With darker themes it looks better to have the font for the category headers a different color then the surrounding font colors.   It helps to separate things and make it more readable.

The font color for the catbg's is:
color: #FFDD99;

You could do a search for that color code and then read to make sure its for a catbg class and if it is change it.

Yeah, for the time being I'm going to just leave the Category set at it's default Gold Color. I just wanted to know for future reference in how to go about changing this particular setting. So, it will be listed under the name category (catbg) right?
