Please Help! Regarding Font "Background" Colors!
#1
Sad 
Hello All!!

I'm completely new to both MyBB and CSS, and I've been modifying my theme somewhat successfully, save for one thing; the background colors behind text. For example, the table may be brown, while the text is yellow, but surrounding the text there's a we square of black or some other color.

To see what I'm getting at, you can see what I've done thus far over here:

And over here:

http://allengallante.com/Forum/forumdisplay.php?fid=2

I thought I had it figured out (I simply didn't put a value for "background color" in the text area), but it only seemed to work on one section, whilst other sections either still had the blocks of color around the text, or, in the case of the "bottom links", blocks of colors surrounding only the wee dashes in between "Contact Us | viceroom.com | " etc...

If anyone can help me with this, I'd be ETERNALLY grateful!!

Thanks and Best! Smile
Jim

I've never seen anything like this before. I know how to fix it, but don't know what part of the CSS Structure must be altered in the Admin CP in order to fix it. I've only ever seen this done with links, but not collectives of normal text.

Give me a few minutes, lad. I'll see what I can do.

This is a very simple error. I checked your CSS and you are missing a ";" after the extra css portion of the container background and color elements.

EDIT: Just validated your CSS to make sure I was correct and I was:

28 #container Value Error : background attempt to find a semi-colon before the property name. add it
30 #container Value Error : color attempt to find a semi-colon before the property name. add it

Is there a background color in the Small Text background box (In the theme manager)? If so, remove it. Smile
