codex - change fckeditor background color

posts: 11

We came across the codex theme, and since we are a library and the theme makes tikiwiki look like a book, we love it! Except.......

When we go to edit a webpage with fckeditor (we are using 1.10) the background color is purple! This doesnt look good with the text....we like the purple background for the site in general, but want the fckeditor background to be not purple.....

any ideas on how to do this? any guidance at all where to look?

Hi Seromine:

Yes, as always, the first place to look at is the current documentation:
http://doc.tikiwiki.org/Documentation

Search (at the browser level: Ctrl+F in Firefox; not through tiki search engine) for "theme" (or any other big subject you are interested in). You'll find, among others, "5.1.1 Styles and Themes" (under "5. Tuning Tikiwiki > 5.1 Design").

Read this page first, and the following pages of the same 5.1 section in the structure, and ask again if in doubt about which tpl's to look for, if you don't find it alone (I don't know myself, I would have to look for it in there, but I preffered to tell you how to look for it yourself so that you learn...)

And please, consider helping to improve the documentation as you move forward, learn more, and get ideas on how documentation pages ( http://doc.tikiwiki.org/Documentation ) could be improved . :-)

Cheers

And by the way, If using Firefox or Mozilla Seabird (or derivatives), you mihgt want to install and use "Developer toolbar" extension: a "must" to play and learn about hacking .css files (specially in tiki , with such huge .css files).
Google for it...

To add to xavi's comments, at the site where I have 1.10 installed, even in the codex theme the fckeditor background color isn't purple, so I'm not sure if the code has changed between 1.10 updates or what. Anyway, like xavi said, a good approach is to use a tool to examine the page and find what CSS div is showing in purple.
