Looking for help to change the text color in a theme
« on: December 29, 2015, 08:58:22 pm »

I have tried what I am comfortable changing and that made no difference at all. 

You can find the gallery here:  OSLS Gallery  and the problem is with the gray text on the black button/bar.  It is very hard to read for those of us with aging eyes.

The forum is set for a grand opening on 1 Feb and it would be nice to get it changed by then.  It is functional at the moment as is.

Thank you,
Jan

The change is very simple. Would you like me to move this to the theme section where I can detail how you can change it?

In your custom themes style.css
change the color attribute in all the alblink a styles:
Code: [Select]
.alblink a {
    text-align: center;
    font-size: 15px;
    font-family: 'Lato', sans-serif;
    font-weight: 400;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    padding: 15px;
    color: #484848;
}
and the color attribute here:
Code: [Select]
.tableh1 {
    background-color: #1e1e1e;
    text-align: center;
    font-size: 15px;
    border-bottom: 3px solid #cbcaca;
    line-height: 120%;
    font-family: 'Lato', sans-serif;
    font-weight: 400;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    color: #484848;
    padding: 10px;
    -webkit-box-shadow: inset 0px 0px 20px 0px #181818;
    box-shadow: inset 0px 0px 20px 0px #181818;
}
and here:
Code: [Select]
.statlink {
    font-size: 15px;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    color: #484848;
}

I think that should catch all the grey on black.

From my browser it looks like you still have a few elements to adjust as not all headers are showing white. As Jeff so kindly suggested, there are a few places where that grey appears. You could using a text editor search for #484848 and replace it with #FFFFFF using the find and replace facility of your text editor to change all instances of that grey to white. If it were me there are a couple of other colours I would adjust for readability too.
