Milky Way Red problems

Postby adultasiatalk » Thu Dec 18, 2008 4:04 pm

Hi,

The unvisited links of topics in the forums are light grey and the visited ones are very dark grey. I would love to change that around, but just can't seem to make it work. Can anybody please help me with that? I searched everywhere and tried to rewrite some code but couldn't make it work.


Another problem I'm having is placing ads AFTER the first post in a topic. I did everything the phpbb knowledge article said, but the ad still stayed BEFORE the first post in Milky Way Red. Please advise anyone.

Thanks a lot!

Ok, so it's a subsilver2 based theme.

You have a :
Code: Select all
/* === Links === */

section in theme/stylesheet.css.

So I guess you can change all colors from there, don't forget to refresh your theme's css in the style acp after you commit your changes in there.

Thanks, but when I try changing the colour codes, and submit the edited file, refresh the themes and go back to edit the stylesheet, all my colour changes havent been saved and are back to default. Am I overlooking something?

/* === Links === */

a:link {
color: #888888;
text-decoration: none;
}

a:active,
a:visited {
color: #888888;
text-decoration: none;
}

a:hover {
color: #F87700;
text-decoration: underline;
}

a.forumlink, a.forumlink:visited {
color: #444444;
font-family: Verdana, "Trebuchet MS", "Lucida Grande", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 1.2em;
font-weight: bold;
text-decoration: none;
}

a.forumlink:hover, a.forumlink:active {
color: #880000;
font-family: Verdana, "Trebuchet MS", "Lucida Grande", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 1.2em;
font-weight: bold;
text-decoration: underline;
}

a.topictitle {
margin: 1px 0;
font-family: Verdana, "Trebuchet MS", "Lucida Grande", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
font-weight: bold;
font-size: 1.2em;
}

a.topictitle:visited {
color: #444444;
text-decoration: none;
}

th a,
th a:visited {
color: #880000 !important;
text-decoration: none;
}

th a:hover {
text-decoration: underline;
}

a.subforum.read {
background-image: url('styles/milky_way_red/theme/images/subforum_read.gif');
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position: 3px;
padding-left: 12px;
}

a.subforum.unread {
color: #FF0000;
background-image: url('styles/milky_way_red/theme/images/subforum_unread.gif');
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position: 3px;
padding-left: 12px;
}

.forum-buttons a, .forum-buttons a:visited {
color: #444444;
font-weight: bold;
text-decoration: none;
vertical-align: top;
}

.forum-buttons a:hover, .forum-buttons a:active {
color: #880000;
font-weight: bold;
text-decoration: none;
vertical-align: top;
}

Do you edit the physical file and up)load it once done and actually refresh your theme in the style acp ?

Yes, I do all the things :(

Just to make sure, I want to change the unvisited link colours of the topics from 888888 to 444444 and the visited links of the topics from 444444 to 888888.

Which lines do I change, as there are 2 times 888888 and 3 times 444444.

Have you tried to manually clear phpBB's cache, it's either this or something dealing with style sheets being stored in db when you edit them through the acp.

Refreshing theme and template of this theme in style acp should actually refresh it though.

I don't know what else to say, make sure you place the edited file in the correct place in the ftp, or try to edit it in acp directly.
