Mike,

You have this all taken care of then? Editors often have pull the background color from the main body css for whatever reason. Game Vision has a black body on the background and that is mostly likely causing it. It's not true for all editors though.

I can confirm I have the same issue with a brand new, bone stock install of Joomla. Just realized it 5 minutes ago as I'm working on customizing the template and getting it working on my site.

Another item I noticed (easy fix, though) is that in the index.php file there are many instances of the template being called as "gamevision", but others as "GameVision". Running on a linux server, this is a problem for obvious reasons. I opted to find/replace all mine with GameVision, since that's the way you distribute the folder, but I figure it's worth fixing Smiley

Can you please tell how to fix the editor issue, though?

Thanks!

Ya, I'm have the same problem - I created a separate css file for the editor and it fixed the issue when inside admin but I couldnt figure out how to make it fix the editor when it comes up for the user........

Guys try adding this into the template css just below

body {
     background: #000000 url('../images/s5_background.png') no-repeat scroll 50% 0pt;
}

add this right below the above:

.mceContentBody {
     background: #FFFFFF;
}

Here's the thing though. Since Game Vision allows you to change the background text color does it make more sense to leave the background black in the editor and just change the text color or use the above with a white background and black text?

Let me know your thoughts and we'll get an updated version up for download.

Thanks for putting out this problem,

To me, black text on a white background is just easier to work with, but either one would at least be functional Smiley

Thanks for the fix, I'll report my results!

Update: Oddly, it works for me on a local apache/mysql server, but the *exact* configuration on my hosted server (linux, but also apache/mysql) doesn't. Any ideas?

Yikes, and i just realized with that edit in place, the bottom half of the front page suddenly becomes *white*. I put back the original CSS file and it's all OK now.

Just wondered if anyone had another solution? Adding the snippet above unfortunately doesn't do the trick for me Sad

jasongw,

That is strange, I'm not sure why that wouldn't work. Is there anyway I can get backend admin login access to your Joomla site? There is a solution I just need to see what classes your editor is using. You can private message me the login details and I'll be happy to look at it.

Regards,

I'm having second thoughts about color, I'm thinking it would be nice to have the editor consistent with the rest of the site.  Code changes?

After working with some other components that used the templates general appearance for input, I would like to try your initial idea of having the textbox black with white text.  Point me toward the changes needed to make this happen please..............  By the way, I am getting rave reviews from my testers regarding the appearance of the site all thanks to your fine work on this template.  When I finish tweaking some things and moving it into the main directory, I'm gonna try adding another gamevision option with a different gaming background as an option for users as indicated in another thread.  You can check out where I'm at with the site at http://namelessones.com/Joomla.  Thanks again for all your hard work and fine support.  Wish I received the same support for the phpBB bridge I purchased........

Sorry, I just haven't gotten around to figuring this out yet; didn't forget about you. I should have time to look at it tonight.

Mike,

At the top of your template css you will see this:

.mceContentBody {
     background: #FFFFFF;
}

If you change it to this:

.mceContentBody {
     background: #000000;
     color: #0000FF;
}

Just change 0000FF to the hex color you chose for the body color in the template configuration.

Regards,

Submit news link leads to a form that looks pretty good except for the third panel down where there are folders, ie images, publishing, metadata.  The folders and outline remain white and the text labels for the folders are an off white.
