Text impossible to read on chat link box
« on: February 09, 2008, 09:01:12 AM »
The link box to my chat on the bottom of this forum page:   www.zumaforums.net   is putting light grey text on a light grey background.   It is impossible to read.   How does this box determine the text colors to use for that box?    It is normal in my other forum template,   if I put the same code on a different page,  it puts red text,  Im assuming it goes off something on the page to determine the color to use,  but with it on a forum,  its not working correctly.   Anyway I can fix that?

Same code,  different page:   http://www.zumaforums.net/chat3.html


Also,  can I embed the Java flash box into a webpage,  intead of having the link and it open its own little box?

Standard there is no color set for the "Nickname", "Window" etc. text in the Chat login box. So it uses the default color from you webpage/forum. But you can manualy add it(or you can even use your favorite Webpage edit program. (like frontpage)

Standard Chat Code:
Code: [Select]
<!-- Start chatcode -->

<form method="POST" action="http://www.chat4all.net/jirc26/chat-v1.cgi" target="myWindow" onsubmit="window.open('http://www.chat4all.net/blank.htm','myWindow','width=758,height=490,statusbar=no,location=no,toolbar=no,scrollbar=no,resize=yes,resizable=yes');" >
<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="1" style="border-collapse: collapse" bordercolor="#111111" width="240" bgcolor="#D5E7F4">
<tr>
<td width="83"><font face="Arial">Nickname</font></td>
<td width="5">:</td>
<td width="150">
<input type="text" name="nickname" size="20"></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td width="83">
<font size="2" face="Arial"><b>window</b></font></td>
<td width="5">:</td>
<td width="150">
<font face="Arial"><font size="2">small</font><input type="radio" value="1" name="size"><font size="2">normal</font><input type="radio" value="2" name="size" checked><font size="2">big</font><input type="radio" value="3" name="size"></font></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td width="238" colspan="3">
<input type="submit" value="Enter the chat"></td>
</tr>
</table>
<input type=hidden name="pagetitle" value="Example"></p>
<input type=hidden name="tabletitle" value="Example"></p>
<input type=hidden name="roomname" value="Example"></p>
<input type=hidden name="tabletopcolour" value="#064383"></p>
