I don't currently have much time to do new colour styles, however if anyone else wants to have a bash themselves.. feel free.

Color sets (ie new styles) should either be based around the light or dark styles.

//Current light styles
Table Border/ Table Heading Background color: #CCCCCC
Category Strip Background / First Alternating (post) color: #F1F1F1
Second Alternating color: #DFDFDF
Text: #000000
Link color: #000099
hover link color: #000099

//Current default (dark) colours
Table Border/ Table Heading Background color: #333333
Category Strip Background / First Alternating (post) color: #000000
Second Alternating color: #212121
Text: #FFFFFF
Link color: #C2DFFF
hover link color: #C2DFFF

Note the background colours are fixed and cannot be changed.

I'll add any new styles that do not cause permanent retinal damage. :)


Argh I don't know how to spell coulor any more.. :bash:

Edit: dark and light wrong way round.

Call of the Mild by SB

Based on: Dark

Table Border/ Table Heading Background color: #701C1C
Category Strip Background / First Alternating (post) color: #D58F8F
Second Alternating color: #D15959
Text: #B53131
Link color: #696EA9
hover link color: #8E8E8E

Might want to do something about the link colour, it contrasts unfortunately with the second alternator.

Er, I don't think this is working. It barely looked anything like it did in Paint Shop Pro. Is there no sample control panel dealie on the net somewhere?

Right, based on how crap that looked please discount my first proposition.

Why has "light" suddenly gone pink?

Scabrous Birdseed
15-06-2003, 13:42:31
Right, that's much better (shouldn't have messed with dark) now if only you could make the link colour a bit darker it'd be fine.

15-06-2003, 13:58:03
Sorry, the style templates are real buggers to understand, and I've been using them for ages now.All colours should be back to normal now.

There some style sheet conflict issues I have to sort out before I try any new colours out. Note that I got the light and dark styles the wrong way round in the first post.

Nav
15-06-2003, 14:15:42
Some tips,

try and keep styles light with the light template and dark with the dark template, middling won't work well.

In particular make sure that the font colour is dark on light styles and light on dark styles

Scabrous Birdseed
15-06-2003, 16:01:11
Right, thanks, I was trying to be radical but it didn't work.

New one coming up, do you want an on-light version of the pink one as well with a better link colour?

Debaser
15-06-2003, 16:29:09
Woah, this sound like fun. I'm gonna try and create a scheme that looks roughly like and old 80's green/black monitor.

Is it possible to change the font at all?

Nav
15-06-2003, 17:00:00
yes, but only use ones that are commonly available. No custom ones.

Johan, do whatever tickles your fancy. :smoke:

Right, here's one based on the Never Mind The Bollocks Here's The Sex Pistols front cover.

Safety Pin by SB

Based on: Light

Table Border/ Table Heading Background color: #000000
Category Strip Background / First Alternating (post) color: #FF018B
Second Alternating color: #35FF52
Text: #FFFFFF
Link color: #FFFF00
hover link color: #FFFF00

This is assuming that "text" is just the text of the headers like last time.

Therapy is up and looks good. The other one Safety pin doesnt make sense, should it be based on Dark?

Awww. I was going to use the Punk one. :(

Nice, I got one in anyway! Even if it was my more boring one.

Scabrous Birdseed
15-06-2003, 18:15:38
Er, no, not quite. When you (temporarily) instated the dark-based Call of The Mild one, the "Text" function only modified the text in the headers, while the rest of the text remained the normal colour (in that case, white, here black). So I thiought I could be a bit free with the "text" attribute as it didn't modify the colour of the actual letters.

Scabrous Birdseed
15-06-2003, 20:02:44
Right, last one for today:

S-Lo by SB

Table Border/ Table Heading Background color: #FFFFFF

Second Alternating color: #B79595

Ok, this isn't as easy as I thought. How do you work out what numbers correspond to different colours?

Sir Penguin
15-06-2003, 23:55:23
You take an RGB triplet, and for each of the three numbers you convert it from decimal to hexadecimal and concatenate the results. Or, refer to a chart:

Actually, now that I have seen this, could you make S-Lo's borders EEEEEE (ie. the "light" background colour) instead? It looks cleaner that way.

I like S-Lo, but instead of the bruise color, if a slightly lighter teal was used instead I'd agree. Oh, and make the background just a little darker.

Thoughts so far.

Gangrene is cool, definately going to add that,

I like 'Creamer', but I think it could be brightened up a bit,

Smoke salmon/Melanoma possibly.

Hotdog. ouch (that got through MS quality control??!) If a few posters demand this one I might add it. :D

S-Lo. Header background colour clashes with the background. personally i dont like the colours. :D

If not yellow, then at least #ccffcc, so you can actually tell the difference between the link color and the rollover color. #66ee66 and #66ff66? :)

Did you look at it, or are you just inferring that from the link? The difference is not insignificant, and I think it is just fine the way it is.
