I'm using the R5 discussion template to create a web forum.  The problem that is driving me nuts is I can't find out where this orange color is coming from!  I need all the colors to be black.  Any idea how I can recolor this?

Here's the URL so you can see what I'm talking about:

Okay here's where the ugly orange comes from:
Pages :
dspTemplateName
$$ViewTemplate for ...
$$ViewTemplateDefault
-> page background

Forms :
Anonymous Response
Anonymous Response To Response
Author Profile
Interest Profile
Main Topic
Remove Thread
Response
Response To Response
(Archive Log)
(IntProfileInstructions)
(ProfileDisplay)
-> background for the action bar and in some forms backgrounds in tables on the form

There you have all the places where the ugly orange colour appears in the default design template. Just change the colours in all the above pages and forms and all will be as you want it.

Also, don't forget to change the font colour of text to be displayed, because black on black isn't that readable ;-)

Regards,
Jerrith

I also noticed that sometimes the view-applet doesn't display properly (just stays as a gray box). This is due to a problem with the applet in IE5.5.
To bypass this problem, put the following JavaScript in the onload event of the $$ViewTemplate pages :

applView = document.applets.view;
if (applView!=null)
   {
   while (!applView.isActive()) {};
   applView.reshape(0,0,applView.offsetWidth,applView.offsetHeight);
   }

Is this tip worth a few exta points ??? ;-))

Ok, for now just look at the actual first page when clicking on forum.  It appears that it uses $$ViewTemplateforDefault form but I turned everything in that template to black.  It worked for the view portion but the action bar is what is baffling me... where is it getting that orange action bar?  I don't see anywhere where I can choose the color of an action bar.

Ah, but you can change it.
Make sure your action pane is visible, then select an action and show the properties for this action. Now from the properties dialog box, click on the drop-down box to select the properties of the action bar.
Here you'll see the background color of the bar on the first tab, the second tab is to customize the background of the action buttons and the third tab lets you customize the way text is displayed on the buttons.
That's it.

Oh yeah, don't forget to make sure the action bar is shown as an applet, otherwise you're settings won't matter.
