just too many to create topics each time

We have opened the site to users (thanks again Chris :)) and they have reported emails are almost unreadable with black text on dark-brown background.  We use the dark theme generated by theme wizard (it can be seen on bfed2.diablomods.ru - sorry but almost everything in russian yet). Is there a way to take emails back to default colors? I can edit email css by myself to either get it back to default or adapt colors with the current theme if you could point me to the correct css to edit :) I've looked everywhere but css names in themes are somewhat unclear and I do not see separate email settings anywhere else.

Also, can I check somewhere if members are able to select the theme by themselves? We'd like to keep the only one theme available, should I disable unused ones or members can't select them in any way?

I am getting new reports from members constantly so I guess it would be better to just post new questions in this topic as they appear to not overburden the forum with my topics :) I guess there will be lot of new questions at least for several days or weeks. Especially tough things are related to multi-language site as we have to maintain English and Russian versions simultaneously, including forums. I am sure there will be more questions later.

  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Members may choose in their profile so long as there are more than one theme with permissions and at least one zone set to allow members to choose.

Different questions should go in different topics. Past answered questions will then be easier to find by other users, topics will be cleaner, and you're more likely to get answers quicker (it is rare I find time to reply to a big wall of questions).
