White text on white background in upload fields??

Postby dbadolato » Tue Jul 08, 2008 6:27 am

I have installed wow roster and it works great. One problem, when you click on Update Profile, the update box has a white background for the fields, (see link below) the update does work if you browse to the correct file but you cannot see the path to the file with the white background. Is there anyway to fix this?

The file upload boxes are supposed to be a dark brown with a gold border and white text
It looks fine in IE or FF 2
Firefox 3 is enforcing a white box, but allows the color to be changed

When you say allows the color to be changed, is this a setting in Firefox 3? or would I need to change the color in one of the php files?

I do not know
I have not looked into it

The background and the border are set in the css file roster/templates/default/style.css

this appears to be the input class that controls the text boxes,

input, .input {
border:1px solid #444444;
color:#777777;
font:10px verdana,arial;
background-color:#202020;
}

but for the upload text box I just could not get the background to be anything other than white in FF3. In the end I used a font color that is visible on a white and black background

You are correct:

input, .input {
border:1px solid #CBA300;
color:#FFF;
font:10px verdana,arial;
background-color:#202020;

in ..\roster\templates\default\style.css is what controls the background. Changing this works in IE but not in Firefox. Once again Microsoft "Helps" us by fixing something behind the scenes. Apparently there is something about the css file that is not fully css compliant. IE allows the fudge and firefox doesn't. Unfortunately this doesnt help me track it down. I am a complete novice just trying to run a site for my guild. I don't know how to figure out what Firefox doesn't like about the css file.

For now I will do what you did and change to a text color that can be seen on black or white.

FF2 skins it properly. FF3 only accepts the font color, and doesn't alter the rest.

I looked all around in the css and I couldn't figure out where to change the font color.

Anybody know where that is?

Is it back in the roster config?
