Hello,

I'm new to Joomla and have encountered difficulty in changing the white background to something suitably grey.

http://prosynergy.cobalthorizon.com/index.php/user-profile?view=login

Would you be able to help?

Hello,

I do not see any white backgrounds on that page. It appears grey + black.

Hello,

Thank you for your reply.

I have checked with a few of my colleagues and they report to see the same as me.

I have attached an image, hopefully that can help?

It's not really white but off-white, and the form boxes are black.... It really makes it hard to input anything.

Hello,

Can you try in the Template Manager changing your Bootstrap Layout to "Dark" instead of "Light" as these are the default styles provided with Joomla and Boostrap. I would suggest using Firebug to identify the inherit background calls of specific elements like this. I have outlined a couple of the elements in the screenshots for your reference.

Code:

bootstrap-default.css - line 2408

.well {
    background-color: #f5f5f5;
    border: 1px solid #e3e3e3;
    border-radius: 4px;
    box-shadow: 0 0 3px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2) inset;
    margin-bottom: 20px;
    min-height: 20px;
    padding: 19px;
}


bootstrap-default.css - line 5035

.nav-stacked a {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #f3f3f3;
}

Hello again,

I installed Firebug and managed to fix the form input text fields and other issues.

As a side, I am unable to locate the bootstrap settings in the templates for Hexicon Gamer. I can see this option in another Shape5 template (Design_Control), but not in the Hexicon template.

Thank you very much for your guidance.

Yes, it is 3.6.

I did not use the Site Shaper version, just the template.

Hello,

Due to the age and styling of this Template it looks like that feature wasn't integrated as it would cause issue. That means that any type of background change can be made directly in the CSS files by using Firebug to identify the background call and modifying its hex color value.

Thanks for your reply.

I figured that might be the case. Not big issue though.

Thank you again for your quick response. I will definitely recommend your services to others!
