    color scheme

    Why do those that choose always choose such hideous colour combinations?
    Im color blind and it is still hideous.

    Links don't have to be a special colour, people understand about clicking on thread titles on a forum. This is not 1993.

    Re: color scheme

    Here, enjoy your black links in your firefox (If cat ~/.mozilla/firefox/*.default/chrome/userContent.css 2> /dev/null has output I don't suggest running this)
    Code:
    cd ~/.mozilla/firefox/*.default/;mkdir chrome;echo -e '@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);\n@-moz-document url-prefix("http://ubuntuforums.org/") {\n\tbody a {\n\t\tcolor:black!important;\n\t}\n}' > chrome/userContent.css;cd;echo "Now restart firefox and enjoy your black links"
    to change the color:
    Code:
    sed 's/old_color/new_color/' -i ~/.mozilla/firefox/*.default/chrome/userContent.css
    in this case old_color would be black
    to go back to default
    Code:
    rm ~/.mozilla/firefox/*.default/chrome/userContent.css

    Re: color scheme

    i doubt you can see the links in my signature without putting you mouse over the text, probably affected the header as well

    You are right. Links looks the same as text.

    Re: color scheme

    you are welcome to lean a little CSS <- that is a link BTW
    Code:
    gedit ~/.mozilla/firefox/*.default/chrome/userContent.css
    replace gedit with your preferred editor, i like geany <- that is a link BTW
    The element targeting in css works like this (just the basics)
    Code:
    body a {
    the A element (a tags are links) must be contained in the body element (the body element contains all visible parts of a web page)
    Code:
    body a#someID {
    this modification requires the link to have a id attribute with the value "someID"
    Code:
    .someClass {
    this requires the target element to have the class attribute with a value of "someClass"
    Code:
    p > a {
    this will affect all links (A tag) that are directly inside of a paragraph element (P tag)
    Code:
    p > a, div span {
    commas can be used specify multiple targets
