David, Just a tip: The date is most likely reverting to black because it reverts white text to black thinking it wont be viewable.
I dont have photoshop right now Or Id tell you the hex code, But make it white, but just make it a fraction darker, I dont remember if F is white or if 0 is, but It should be something like FEFEFE, or 010101? I wouldnt know, just go to photoshop, select white, move the slider 1 pixel down, use that hex code and itll stay that correct color
Edit: BTW: David, You know how to make multiple schemes right? Well for those that like the old one just set it up like that so they can pick. And while your doin that maybe you could set up another scheme similar to your other forum? That would be cool for those that want a revamped scheme.
Hm..Idea.. I don't know if You can.. I'll have to check on my VB
site, But I just had an Idea, User Independant customizable schemes....That would be cool... Each user could make their own scheme as if it were a blog, Apply their own images from another site and it wouldnt even affect anyone but themselves when theyre logged in...LIGHTBULB! *scurries off to his message board*
And No, theres nothing wrong with the pictures I just went and made thumbnails in one of my posts, but then I realized that it did it for you so I wasted time
