Changing text size/color in Dirtyboard

Post by jmalcodray » Sun Feb 08, 2009 3:23 am

You've helped me on another support board recently and had some questions about the font size for Dirtyboard2.0. The text size for the tags 'Register', 'Logon' , etc., that appear lower-left in the header logo are hard for the eye to pick up. Thinking about making them a bit larger and maybe even changing the color.

Do you think it's a good idea and could you guide me toward the directory/files and code that need changing.

Thank you,

Joe, igotissues.com/forum

Hi Joe.

That is why I put the black snake thingie in the temp image. ;)

Open theme/common.css
FIND

Code: Select all

.navbar li a {  
	color: #ccbe91;
	font: 1.1em Helvetica, Verdana, Arial;
	font-weight: bold;
	text-decoration: none;
... and change the #ccbe91 to the colour you want (i.e. #000000). Wanting a slightly larger font, then change font: 1.1em to font: 1.2em (the same as 12px).

check dirtyboard2.0 here to see what that does - removed that practical but hideous black snake thingie.

Also, I adjusted /common.css .. #page-header, min-height: to a value of 250px so the Board index sits closer to the navbar (due to having a smaller logo image than the default). An exact measurement can be worked out but today is Sunday.

hope that helps,
oddfish.

You did it again Oddfish, thanks so much for the help. I wasn't planning on it originally, but I got rid of that black banner thingie too!

Thanks again, you know I'll be in touch again. All the best,

Joe
