When you have the css open click Edit/Find in Firefox and type #FFDD99 in the search box.   It'll search thru the css and highlight each occurance of it.   You can click Next or Previous as you go along.  Its MUCH faster  ;)

I had no idea you were hand scrolling through approx 3500 lines of code LOL

How (what's the code) do I change the color for threads? It's currently set at a gold color, which I like. I just want to make it a little bit lighter so that it's easier to read.


Thanks.

Although the css with 2.0 gives more creative control it is not always possible to change every specific thing without it effecting other areas.   I also do not know 2.0's css inside out and would have to go thru and figure out some things myself first, test them, then tell you how to do it.   Its a huge change from 1.1's css.  THAT I knew inside out. 

What I would do is change the gold color throughout the forum.     Its the first code at the top of the css  (Normal Standard Links)

If you use IE 9 you can use (From Tools)   F12 Developer Tools.   Its handy to figure out what handles what.    That or try the Firebug addon for Firefox.  Ild also consider learning some css or getting an understanding of it, how it works with html, etc.   w3schools is very good for that.    What Im leaning at here is that I dont mind a few little changes but Im not gonna do a total style redo for ya either  ;)   

At any rate.. try doing the change to the Normal Standard Links

From a creative standpoint a piece of advice.   Sine the theme is a dark theme the font colors are normally subdued so they do not stand out in an extreme way.  That can ruin the theme as instead of being a part OF it you wind up seeing this darkness on a page and bright words everywhere.  It can also be difficult on the eyes.
