settings background (css)


i have a little problem with my stylesheet: the background in "settings" is the same color like the text (so you can't read the text :-/)


can somebody give me a tip how I can change that?


  • Andreas.. when you say 'in settings'.. what exactly do you mean? If you are referring to the actual css file relating to that page, can you give us the full path to that file in Elgg?

    The onbvious solution would be to change the background color, or, the font color.. but I need to know the exact css file we are talking about so that I can help you.


  • hello carlos,

    here the path to my css file:

    with " in settings" I mean the page where you can change the accoutn password and the language.

    login: test pw: abcddefg


  • Andreas.. The login details don't work.

    In any case, open that file in your html editor.. Find the second section (********DEFAULTS********).. under that section, locate:  font: 80%/1.4 "Lucida Grande", Verdana, sans-serif; color: #000000; 

    Replace with: font: 80%/1.4 "Lucida Grande", Verdana, sans-serif; color: #cccccc;

    Upload to server, then refresh your cache (in admin, uncheck 'use simple cache', then check the same box again).. then view the site to see if it changes the font color.

    Let us know the result.



  • thank you Carlos. it works!
