It's horrible. Blue for sub text and also text in posts.
Not very pleasant to read.

I notice neither this site nor WUB suffer from this.

How do I change those things please?

You'd be better off adding the slogan colour to the css, that way it won't affect something it shouldn't.

In your index.css file, find

Code Select
/* Float these items to the right */
#siteslogan, img#smflogo {
 padding-right: 2px;
 float: right;
 line-height: 50px;
 font-size: 1.8em;
}

Add your colour, like,

Code Select
/* Float these items to the right */
#siteslogan, img#smflogo {
 padding-right: 2px;
 float: right;
 line-height: 50px;
 font-size: 1.8em;
 color: #0000FF;
}


Example, only mine's green, lol.. https://cctestsite.info/testsite3/index.php

OK so you'll have notuiced in the SMF forum that sycho's reply was

QuoteYou really shouldn't use html, it's just a hack, additionally you didn't close the font tag so your forum's html is full of
Code Select

<font color="#0000FF">
</font>
scattered around


Does that mean that due to an error in formatting of that field, it now has scatered html all thorught my forum code?  How would that even happen?

And more to the point, how could I fix it ?

Bigguy

Just close the tag

Code Select
</font>

Bigguy

Closing the tag will keep that color to where it is supposed to be. (so to speak)

@bigguy
Well that didn't change any of the blue text stuff in the forum.

Would it be best just to upload the themes folder again, overwriting the existing one?

Aside from the text colours etc (and given I've not made any other code changes other than the one for the background you mentioned) would it have any adverse effects?

Bigguy


LandyVlad

Before I do that

1. Will it fix the other issues - eg blue text? etc

2. That's in the theme index.css so I'm thinking that it might be the smart thing to get the theme back to 100% normal, then I can copy the theme and make all changes ion my 'new' theme. Savvy?

2a. And to do 2, presumably I should uninstall mods, then make a copy as a new theme name and then then reinstall mods. Yes?


Bigguy

I would have to say you are right on all counts. 8)

LandyVlad

OK so I have changed the background according to your instructions in that thread.
The forum seems back to normal now font wise etc!

@Bigguy what is the logo text colour hex value you've used on this forum?

Bigguy

I got lazy and just used white.
