Background colours

I want to be able to change the background colour. When I do from within themes and change colours in the colour map. All that changes is the background to the logo at the top of the page.

I have tried changing the default.css background params to ie 464646 but it doesnt work either.

thanks

This is strange problem as

This is strange problem as it should definitely work. Probably your default.css is older version or you have edited it so that it does not work, or your css files are not loaded by browser.

Some free providers puts Ads in html code and they do not recognize CSS so they put it there too. Browsers can not then correctly use the CSS with Ads in it...

It can by anything, do you have your page online?

Its

Its h**p://www.garyconnoley.co.uk user admin/f1reblade

I restored the default.css with no effect and the installation is with the new version so I shouldn't have any version problems

btw I checked the directory permissions etc and they are correct.

Many thanks for a brilliant product

I had a look on it, it is

I had a look on it, it is quite strange, i get always the same css file, as it would be cached somewhere. On the Server, is it possible that your webserver does it?
You know the problem could be, that the link is still the same for the CSS file, but the content is not as it dynamically changes when you change the color settings. Some cache system could think that if it is the same link it should be the same content. I have never seen this before :)

I did actually notice a

I did actually notice a similar problem when I was playing with the logo...i'd upload a new version and the old one remained despite a ctrl-f5 in the browser. Maybe I need to talk to my hosting company to find out whats going on.

It is weird as I just changed the colour scheme to dark and it worked. Then when I tried winter it didn't, but back to dark did. :)

so tha I can have a sensible

so that I can have a sensible conversation with them, when a change is made to the colour scheme which file(s) change?

thanks

No file is changed, it is

No file is changed, it is dynamically generated by PHP, so it actually does not exists.

You can view it as:

http://www.garyconnoley.co.uk/main.php?cmd=theme&var1=style_css

but it is generated by main.php out of default.css, just replacing colors with the values in database. They actually should not cache any documents generated by PHP ..

Thanks patrik,

Thanks patrik,

To prove this I created a fresh backup of the whole fs and copied it to www.garyconnoley.co.uk/backup. The backup directory contained a version with default colours previously.

I ran main.php?cmd=theme&var1=style_css on each to compare and I get

body {
background-color: #646464;
font-family: arial,sans-serif;
font-size: 12px;
}

on main version and

body {
background-color: #ffffb7;
font-family: arial,sans-serif;
font-size: 12px;
}

on the \backup

It looks like its doing something weird, would that suggest that its within the application or with the hosting setup?

Gary

I would say it is hosting

I would say it is hosting setup, application does no caching on CSS file, only on thumbnails and resized pictures. And there are thousands people not having this problem :) including me.

But I never say never, so may be if i would put something in the header of the css file, your server would make it correct, but i have no idea what it should be. If you find out what it was pleas let me know ...

Patrik

I emailed them and they say

I emailed them and they say that they don't cache php as you suspected.

Gary

If you want you can email me

I think your program and your forum is awesome! I had the same problem and was able to fix it reading your forum. I have been able to do the same with any questions I have. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication!

How do you edit the background color?

Hi!

How do you edit the background color? I've read all of the posts in here on this subject.But they are all very vague,I need to know exactly which file or files to edit.And which lines to edit.

Thanks!
