The file I'm finding is stylesheet.css but it dose not have any color codes in it. Here is the small amount of code it has in it:

/*  phpBB 3.0 Style Sheet
    --------------------------------------------------------------
      Style name:            proSilver
      Based on style:      proSilver (this is the default phpBB 3 style)
      Original author:      subBlue ( http://www.subBlue.com/ )
      Modified by:            
      
      Copyright 2006 phpBB Group ( http://www.phpbb.com/ )
    --------------------------------------------------------------
*/

@import url("common.css");
@import url("links.css");
@import url("content.css");
@import url("buttons.css");
@import url("cp.css");
@import url("forms.css");
@import url("tweaks.css");
@import url("colours.css");

The colours.css file seems like the one most likely to edit, but when I do so nothing happens. Am I not on the right track?

In root/styles/prosilver/theme/colours.css

Find:

Code: Select all
    html, body {
       color: #536482;
       background-color: #ACA8A1;


Replace with:

Code: Select all
    html, body {
       color: #536482;
       background-color: #000000;

Refresh themes and clear cache.
