Need help getting background colors right
August 16, 2008 05:50PM
I have changed the background in the Emerald Template from white to light brown color, #FEE9D3, in the settings.tpl. But, in the messages a band of white background shows up, about an inch and a half high. It also shows up at the bottom of the forum in the Global Statistics Section.

I have gone over and over the changes below, but cannot see where I may have missed something -- or, if I have to make a change somewhere else. Can you tell me how I can fix this? Thanks in advance for any help.

{! -- colors -- }
{VAR body_background_color "#FEE9D3"}
{VAR default_font_color "Black"}
{VAR default_background_color "#FEE9D3"}
{VAR alt_background_color "#FEE9D3"} {! -- should compliment default_background_color -- }
{VAR highlight_background_color "#FEE9D3"} {! -- should compliment the two above -- }
{VAR border_color "#CD853F"}
{VAR border_font_color "#FFFFFF"}
{VAR quote_border_color "#CD853F"}
{VAR pre_border_color "#FFFFFF"}
{VAR pre_background_color "#{! -- colors -- }
{VAR body_background_color "#FEE9D3"}
{VAR default_font_color "Black"}
{VAR default_background_color "#FEE9D3"}
{VAR alt_background_color "#FEE9D3"} {! -- should compliment default_background_color -- }
{VAR highlight_background_color "#FEE9D3"} {! -- should compliment the two above -- }

Thanks! That fixed it. Found the message background image. Took me awhile to figure out how to change the color, I don't have a tool for this, and it's been years since I've done anything with images, but finally found an online image maker. I make a new image in the new color and converted the image to png, since the image maker only made gifs and jpgs.
