Well, not really the background of the forum itself, but the background of the posts.
You know, if I know the background of the posts, I can make invisible text (with the same colour) and it would be cool...

I checked the page`s source and it said #C0C0C0 (which represents Silver). However, when used that colour is too dark, and as I don`t know how to know which part of the page`s source represents the colour of what things, I would wanna know which colour (in hexadecimal form) is the background of the posts.

The colour that I found more similar is the "gainsboro", which is this one you are looking at

Any help?

EDITops, sorry for that, I mixed up "color" with "colour"

you do realize that people with black backgrounds like me, will be able to see the text.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

um, i have no idea what the heck you are talking about. but i guess just try one shade lighter than the one you tried to use?

Well, in the source (the stylesheet at least) it says
body{
background-color: #000000
color: #c0c0c0

Lemme take a closer look at the source I'll get back to you...

EDIT: in the stylesheet, theres a class called "page"
it's got a color value of F1F1F1
Hope that helped...

EDIT2: In the source, the post itself is contained in a table row (tr) using a class called "alt2," and in the stylesheet the background-color value for it is DFDFDF

hi

LAST EDIT: F1F1F1 looks more like it... this is what it looks like: f1f1f1 compared to dfdfdf dfdfdf
Signature? What's a signature?

#F1F1F1?
IS that some sort of WhiteSmoke, I guess it is too light?
I will try...

I guess DFDFDF is the right one, in comparison to gainsboro and light grey...I will try to find the colorname for it


^^I know some people have black backgroung (damn that UG skin ) but at least people who don`t`will not see it...

Sheez, it is better than people using white letters..

EDIT:I think this is it, I am trying different colors

When looking closely, I can see a bit of white in yours. I guess I perfected it. It's #E8E8E8 thanks to photoshop.

EDIT: I was wrong. Well, actually, the text I quoted had white cause of the more grayish quote background.

That's it, lol.

Although when quoted, it's easier to see.

E8E8E8, if I'm not mistaken.

I went on a HTML color hunt one night to find out, myself.

This is the text.


^^^ That's text I've written in the E8E8E8 color.

If you're using "Classic" just highlight it.


This is the text

^^^That's for the "Black" profile look.

Again, just highlight the text, and you'll see it, if you're using "Black"

So it is #E8E8E8? Right?

Now, is there a way to change the color of the text when higlighted? (when you highlight it in "classic" it turns white) Is there a way to make it the same as the "highlighter color" when highlighted?
