It has been asked if the black background can be changed.. 

From memory, it seems like this particular Helios Blue theme will not let me go in and alter colors for different/specific parts of this theme.. Most themes will let me..

I will check with someone smarter than me to see for sure. It may require CSS coding which can be pretty complicated and over my head..

In the meantime, I have made it possible for all members to change from the current Helios Blue to a Default theme.  But I need a little help from anyone willing.  As Admin, I can not see some things that regular members can within profiles.. If someone would go to their profile and poke around a little.. Look for something similar to "change to default theme"..  Let me know if you find something, and if it worked for you..

It is not surprising that some find the black background uncomfortable. It has come up before from members on another forum I have, and we did change it to something that worked for everyone..

Happy to change this so everyone can enjoy the forum without being hard on their eyes..

A couple of us looked, and other than the 4 choices at the top of the page, there is nothing for the background.

Hi George, I looked at the profile settings this morning and couldn't see anything different there.  The options under look and layout preferences are the same as well.

admin must allow users to change themes in the themes and layouts within the admin panel.

Click admin, scroll down admin columns to themes and layout, near the top will be a box next to:
Allow members to select their own themes.  make sure the box to the right is marked and members will be allowed to change to a different theme.

right now we arent allowed

Yes, I am know about giving this option.. It was a last resort if I could not get the previous to work, or figure out how to edit the colors on this existing theme..

Since am not having any luck, will go ahead and let members select their own themes..

Nope. The option (2 choices) is there, and no matter which I select, nothing changes. Still black. Thanks for trying.

Does this happen when you pick the option to only use the default theme, or does this happen when you try to pick the option to choose what ever theme you want ?

There are only 2 choices, and neither of them do anything... preview does not work either.

    
Forum or Board Default
This is the default theme, which means your theme will change along with the administrators' settings and the board you are viewing.
372 people are using this theme.
use this theme | preview »

   
SMF Default Theme - Core
The default theme from Simple Machines.
Thanks go to Bloc and the design team.

It will help a little if I know which option you are using Sara. If this is happening when you try to use the default, or if when you have chosen to pick any theme..

Not sure if it will work now, but maybe someone give it a whirl.  The only option you will be able and see now is for choosing any theme. The default theme option is turned off.
