    This skin is absolutely beautiful! The dark backgrounds are contrasted by the light font colors.

    I just have a tiny bug, not sure if it is something I did or not, but in the box_h5_grey2 container (I think this is where the problem is…)the drop down lists and other input boxes (I have only used the admin/host pages so far) have a very light blue font color on white background, so it is not very visible. If anyone could suggest where I could look to change it to something darker, I would greatly appreciate it!

    ps: It looks like the font is the same “skyblue” I used in the style of the asp code in my iframe on the home page…it probably IS something I did, but is not overridden in the stylesheets? or maybe I need to use an HTML module instead of iframe? I appreciate any comments/suggestions…

    Thanks again!

      Hi @Doris,

      Unfortunately, there isn’t an elegant way to apply a “local” css style to external content of an iFrame. You can see if any of these solutions work for you:

      Might be worth noting that the same origin policy will stop this working if the page is on a different domain

      Unless you have a compelling reason, I’d avoiding using iFrames for HTML content.

    My Iframe is fine. It’s the dnn pages that the input box is a very light color font on white background. Is there any way I can change the font to a darker color? Do you think the css in the asp page is affecting the whole domain? Do you think the css in my asp page won’t affect the rest of dnn pages if it is hosted at a different domain? I will move the asp pages to another domain and see what happens….and let you know.

    Hi Adam,
    Just a quick note to say what a fabulous skin you have created. For me it is one of the truly great DNN skins . . . fast, customizable and cleanly coded. The best ever!

    I try to move the Register/Login to the top (in the search line, since i removed the search).

    But i miss something, since when logged in the Register/Login doesn’t change. Apparently i skip some step.

    Any ideas ? tks

      @Costas Zividis,

      Hmmm, nothing comes to mind why the location of these elements would change their behavior. I just tested by commenting out the dnn:SEARCH element and moving (cut and paste) the dnn:USER and dnn:LOGIN elements into the class=Search DIV. Seems to work just fine.

      Make sure you don’t have any dnn: elements with the same id. Try testing with the default DNN skin. Do you get the same behavior or does it work as expected?

      Let me know what you find.

    @ Adam Humphrey

    Well, your suggestion to have only ONE element … worked ….
