assuming it's the forum summary (postlist)

it's here:

[Linked Image from sirdude.com]

4 classes

2 for regular alternators, the other 2 for new alternators

[xxx-]'topicsubject' probably wink

also keep in mind that the subjects themselves in postlist are LINKS and you need to take the extra link styling (Special link properties - hover, visited etc) into consideration too ..

assuming it's the forum summary (postlist)

it's here:

[Linked Image from sirdude.com]

notice i don't style them specifically with a color (just screwed with underline, no underline), so that means they inherit the other '<a...' styling from the containing 'div' wink you can put a specific color in there, if you want different effects for each one.

Here is how the forum looks:

Note the white text in the darker rows.

I want it black.

Here is my Style Settings:

Not a clue how to edit this.

Thanks in advance for your help!

The white text is determined by the "color" element in each class, it is not a link, so it is not effected by the 'special properties' area.

You will need to update all 4 classes to make them all be black text; and you'll need to do this for each class type as well.

Gizmo,

I'm sorry for not being to "up" on this.

I see "color: #33333;" in my screen dump example.

What I don't see is how the text is question is set to "color: #FFFFFF;" (white). I was just hoping/assuming there there was a tag somewhere that was "color: #00000;" that i simply changed to "color: #FFFFFF;"

Please enlighten me.

Thanks in advance.
Peter

ok, see how there are 4 types:
[plain]
alt-
new-
new-alt

All 4 versions need the update.

easy way to do it is use the 'Copy' links to the right:

[Linked Image from sirdude.com]

just click on the last 6 copy links and it will grab from the one that is properly styled above.

looks like your alt- is good, so you'd be grabbing good stuff to fill in the bad guy wink

hey peter thanks! i must admit it's a pleasure working with a dude who's into cars and beer!!

throw in fishing and it's a trifecta laugh Mitch P has that one covered though.

yah the other weirdness was that header.tpl got mangled in the upgrade and had the '<body onload....' crapola stuck right in the middle of the '<title>.....</title>' stuff..

kinda strange, but it was fixed..

pleasure doing biz, peter ....er beer that is laugh

Did you not see the street lamps?

It's silly, drinking in public is a nono, BUT throw a picknick table outside and it's suddenly ok...
