Forum text color

Text coloring in forum posts

...can be a lot of fun, but the BunsenLabs forums have a big choice of user-styles having different backgrounds and fonts. This can mean that a fancy colour emphasis in your post could be unreadable to another user, who has a different style set in their Profile.

So bear this in mind when choosing colours, and try to use ones which work in all styles.

Here are some common colours, and how they display on the forums...


Code used:

[color=#FFFFFF][b]White[/b][/color]     [color=#000000][b]Black[/b][/color]     [color=#999999][b]Grey[/b][/color] [color=#C0C0C0][b]Silver[/b][/color]

[color=#00FFFF][b]Cyan[/b][/color]     [color=#0000FF][b]Blue[/b][/color]     [color=#0000A0][b]DarkBlue[/b][/color]    [color=#ADD8E6][b]LightBlue[/b][/color]  

[color=#FF0000][b]Red[/b][/color]     [color=#FFA500][b]Orange[/b][/color]     [color=#800080][b]Purple[/b][/color]     [color=#A52A2A][b]Brown[/b][/color]

[color=#FFFF00][b]Yellow[/b][/color]     [color=#00FF00][b]Lime[/b][/color]     [color=#008000][b]Green[/b][/color]    [color=#808000][b]Olive[/b][/color] 

[color=#FF00FF][b]Magenta[/b][/color]     [color=#800000][b]Maroon[/b][/color]

Re: Forum text color

Hint: drag the cursor across the hidden text to highlight it. This usually makes it visible in an emergency.
