White Font in Forum Header


FTW

Anonymous
How can I change the color of the white font located in the header of the forum?
Even here on the GL site, at http://www.geeklog.net/forum/index.php?forum=2

if you look at the text for "First | Previous | 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 | Next | Last" located at the top of the topics, it is white text on a gray background. That makes it real difficult to read.

If anyone knows what line within the css file will change the color of that text OR the color of the background, please let me know.

You may want to add this code at the end of the style.css

PHP Formatted Code
.pluginBG,
.pluginAltBG,
.pluginFooter,
.pluginFooter td,
.pluginCellTitle,
.pluginTitle{background-color: #2C59B5 !important;}
.pluginSolidOutline{background-color: #639AEE !important;}

Actually if you use firefox browser and the plugin "Stylish" https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/2108 you can play around with the css of any site.

I see this geeklog.net with the css code I posted above and it looks much better :wink:

Thank you for responding. I think you have the general idea, however when I added your code, it not only changed the font to black, it also changed all the borders around the table, including the header, to a real dark blue, which made the black text impossible to see.

If I could just change the white text to black. blue or red, without changing the background color of every border around the table, I think it would work better.

I also noticed that in the original style, ( I am using the professional template) the white text does not show up on every page. One common area of text that shows up white is "print" in the header of the table.

Thanks

I think there is a known bug with the CSS of the forum at present but you can alter it in the way I showed you. It is good to read some css tutorial online or a book. I`m sorry I can`t follow your explantion without seeing it. Are you using professional theme?

I wrote one more line at the end

.pluginCellTitle{color:white!important;}

Thank you VERY MUCH. That last line, changing the font color, made all the difference. My site looks great now.

I really appreciate your help.
I also appreciate your suggestion relating to me learning more about css, but as they say, you can't teach an old dog new tricks, and I am REALLY old, as in my 70's and have forgotten almost everything I learned about computer languages back in the 80's and 90's. So thanks again for helping a half blind, old worn out Biker.
