In Radio Userland's discussion forum, Lisa asks:
Can someone point out to me where I need to drill down to change the color of the textbox for posting/editing items? I want to make it the same background color/default text color as on my blog so that I can see how it looks as I'm creating it...
According to this page, you're
supposed to be able to use
<%radio.macros.weblogEditBox (bgcolor)%> to set the
background color of the HTML editor box. I tested this on my weblog and this does
*not* work. I took a look at the code - the macro does allow for a bgcolor parameter,
but it does not use it to set the editor background color at all. If a color value
is supplied, it will actually set the background color for the category checkboxes
below the editor.
#desktopWebsiteTemplate, below the
<%radio.macros.weblogEditBox ()%> macro.
(Use the correct version for your browser):
Mozilla / Mozilla Firebird
In the script, edit the fgColor value to set the foreground (text) color you want, and edit the bgColor value to set the background color of the HTML editor. Save the template, then open the Desktop Website in your browser. The new colors should be immediately visible in the HTML editor window. If you no longer want to use this script, simply delete it from your Desktop Website template.
This script does not alter the appearance of published posts on your weblog - it only changes how they look in the editor window. No HTML code or style attributes are added to the text of your posts.
