Forum OpenACS Q&A: Default Colors in 4.6
I've been setting up and changing the look and feel of my 4.6 installation at http://www.pcs-sc.com:8000/ . I've set the main site default background and text colors, I've developed a CSS that does not over-ride these colors and styles.
But, I am running into little things that have seemingly default colors and I'm having a hard time finding a place to edit them. Specifically, the widgets like when you do certain things in the forums package, they are sky blue and my text disappears. Also I get a light grey bar in some places that my light grey text disappears in, any help in pointing me in the right direction will be greatly appreciated.
unfortunately some color codes have been hard coded. Grep the tcl files for 'color' and you'll find them. Log them in the OpenACS bugtracker so that they can be removed in 4.7.
One quick solution in your case might be to replace standard.adp with plain.adp.
I did the grep for color in the files and ended up with a 476kb text file of the results. I'm not using all of the modules, but thought I'd post what I've manually changed in the bug-tracker after I finish making the changes.
Is there any preference for this, should I post color issues as I go, or save them up for one entry when I get done?
