Thanks Renata. You are brilliant. I didn't know you had so many talents. :)

However, I didn't get your email. What did you put in the subject of it? Can you resend it? I will PM you the correct spelling of my email address.

Renata,
Are you suggesting that I use cranberry red instead of pink? I thought we gonna switch to purple? Suppose I change the pink to purple, what then should I change the blue background to?

Btw, next time you post an email address, I'd do it like this: email at email.com. Otherwise, spam bots may pick up the linked email and send spam to it. I already changed this in your previous post.

Renata,
I changed the pink color of the theme to Pink Lemonade, which is somewhere between red, purple and pink. It looks like this:

However, the forum colors are still the same. I have no idea why. I refreshed the cache too. This sucks. (sigh)

Renata,
Here are the official phpbb instructions for changing colors in forum themes:

https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtop ... 4&t=926045

I already did what it said and changed the colors in the colours.css style file. But it didn't work. It also mentioned changing the colors in the bg_header.gif file. However, that file only has a thin blue line. I don't see how changing the color in that image file will do anything.

Can you see if I'm missing something?

This is the code for the pink background > We can change it to a Cranberry red - #9F000F
background-color: #ffabb7;

This is the code for the pink border > We can change it to a Cranberry red - #9F000F
border-color: #ffabb7;

This is the code for the blue background > We can change it to a Platinum grey - #E5E4E2
.bg2 { background-color: #ddedfb; }
.bg3 { background-color: #ddedfb; }

Or you can try out these codes. There are many codes for colours here > http://www.computerhope.com/htmcolor.htm

Renata, did you read what I wrote above? I did change the colors already, but it didn't work. I don't know why.

Btw, why do you like cranberry red? I thought you wanted purple? Red may be a bit too loud. Purple is a much more creative and friendly color.

It's actually called Pink Lemonade, in the color chart you gave me.

I think it's nice, but it's still kind of bright. I will probably change it to purple or violet, since it seems to be the most universally agreed upon color here.

What's odd is that the new colors are showing now, but for two days after I changed them, they did not show! This was even after I refreshed the cache. Why did it take two days to show after I changed them? Weird.

Also, the background behind the border is still the same color. That bright pink you don't like is still in a bar in the background. I wonder if it's the same coded pink since I changed all occurrences of that pink. Maybe it's in another file?

Hey those ads look nice and colorful! :P

Ok I've changed the forum colors to purple now. It will take two days to take effect for some reason. I have no idea why. lol

Are the pink bars in the background ok? Are they annoying too?

I will try to figure out how to change the text link colors here too.

Ok I think I know what's going on now. You have to clear your browser cache to see the new theme colors for this forum. Are you all seeing the purple colors at the top now?

Renata,
Even though I've changed the colors of the header and border, I don't know how to change the colors of the text links. They are still link. Can you find out the color code of the text links? How did you find out the color codes of the header before? Is there a color grabber site that can do that?

Thanks,
Winston

Colours and backgrounds for links.css
-------------------------------------------------------------- */

a:link { color: #db528d; }
a:visited { color: #db528d; }
a:hover { color: #D31141; }
a:active { color: #368AD2; }

The #db528d & #D31141 are pink
The #368AD2 is the blue

Forum's Layout & design is cool... Especially for female the color is most popular in our community. Today I have visited almost all the threads, all is maintained well and navigate properly.

Renata,
I got a good idea. How about I just switch the theme of this forum altogether to Artodia Phantom? It's a light blue theme and has a slightly feminine looking interface. What do you think? See the demo below.
