i am trying to change the color of the font in the body of a post. like here it is a black color. i have a light grey back round with an even lighter grey font that is very hard to see. i just need to know where to change this color on the .css template file.

IDLE, what the address to your forum? I can only help if I know what the html and css from your forum look like.

In forum.css, at line 993 there's the following code:

Code:
.msgtext

    {

    line-height: 140%;

    border-top: 1px solid #ffffff;

    margin-top: 10px;
}
You want to change that to:

Code:
.msgtext

    {

    line-height: 140%;

    border-top: 1px solid #ffffff;

    margin-top: 10px;

[B]    color: #ffffff;
[/B]
}

Of course you can use any other color too, but white would work best on that gray background.

Are you sure you edited forum.css and not some other file? Because editing CSS files shouldn't give you an error like that.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
