  • How do I: Change background color

    Hello. I would like to change the background color in the forum description box for the entire site. Where do I need to go to edit the color?

    Thnx, Kevin

    That is defined in your CSS as alt1. You can change the color of alt1, but it will change all the alt1s to that color. You can also edit the navbar template and change the class for the forumdesc section. That change can be in-line styling or you can create a new class that defines a different background color - maybe call that class alt3 (there are predefined alt1 and alt2 classes already). You create new CSS in one of the Additional CSS Definitions boxes near the bottom of All Style Options for your style. Then change the class in the template to the new class. The newly created CSS might look something like this:
    Code:
    .alt3 {background:#nnnnnn;color:#nnnnnn;}
    Change the first set of nnnnnn to the color you want your background in hex code and the second set of nnnnnn to the color you want your text. Then edit the navbar template and change the class declaration for that section from class="alt1" to class="alt3". If you have other areas you want the new class to be in effect, you can edit the appropriate template and change the class to the new one.

    R'gards,

      Good stuff! Thank you. I was able to make the changes. Your description was very accurate. I appreciate your response. I changed the background color for the forum description and the notices box.

      I added ".alt3 {background:#F8F5A4;color:#222222;}" to the "Additional CSS Definitions".... and in the 'navbar' template I made these changes...

      $vbphrase[notices]
      </td>
      <td><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/_thead-top_rht.gif" alt="" /></td>
      </tr></table>
      <table class="tborder" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="$stylevar[cellspacing]" border="0" width="100%" align="center">
      <tr>
      <td class="alt3">
      $notices
      </td>
      </tr>
      </table>
      <br />
      </form>
      </if>

      <if condition="$show['forumdesc']">
      <table class="tborder" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="$stylevar[cellspacing]" border="0" width="100%" align="center">
      <tr>
      <td class="alt3" width="100%"><strong>$foruminfo[title]</strong> <span class="smallfont">$foruminfo[description]</span></td>
      </tr>
      </table>
      <br />
      </if>

            1- go to your "admin control panel"
            2- select "styles & templates" > "style manager"
            3- next to the style that you want to change, select "main css" the press the "go" button
