Change colors of Halloween theme
« on: October 22, 2019, 06:29:21 pm »
I just installed the Halloween theme on SMF ver 2.0.15 and I can't read the black on grey background at the top of the page.  How can I change it to white on grey?

So here is what I am talking about.  I would like to know how to change the text color from black to some lighter color so I can see it better, or change the color of the background.

Thanks.

It would be in the style.css for sure. I am not a design person myself.  What I do is either use firefox firebug inspector or google chrome developer tools.
Then select a section and see where the colors are coming form in the style.css.

A good forum to discuss would be at https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?board=34.0

Thanks for the help.  I forgot all about the inspect mode.

I inspected the code and found and changed the code in three places while I was inspecting.  It changed the colors that I wanted.  When I tried to edit the file though, I couldn't find the same code.  I was editing the style sheet for the halloween theme so I don't know what to think.  Also my eyes are not very good and I had a hard time reading that small print when I was in inspect mode.
