I am not sure why but I found that if you want red use dark red.
The hex code for dark red is    #8B0000. You can also try #DC143C.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

Yeah still look pink, i have a 23inch lg 50,000:1 contrast ratio and they look pink. Like screaming flamboyant pink.

Also, have you had to do a manual upgrade for 4.2 rc3? Theres no directions on this site.

I'm trying to create a theme but its not working… I'm trying to create the whole top of the page with a solid layer that i created in photoshop but its not working… Plus if i can get the theme to be dark and actual vibrant red i would happy. I feel like im stuck because i need to upgrade, i want the store usage the most. Everyone uses vBulletin etc… I like to be different and i like what ocPortal offers. Just wish it was easier to fabricate or more custom themes were available. The prices to get one created through ocPortal is kinda outrageous…

You can use what is in the news at ocPortal.com - News: ocPortal 4.2 released! to update.
it kind of goes into how to do the update after the new feature list.

What can be done is…

Download your images from your theme folder.

Open up …/your_theme/images/zone_gradiant.png

Change the colors in that and reupload.

he probably meant upload all the files for 4.2 and go to that updater page.

How come im unable to open any of those .png's? Photoshop nothing… Says " Could not complete your request because the file-format module cannot parse the file." hmm Oddd as can be. Its a .png file. Inside of OCportal i try to manage themes and images and it doesnt show anything in the box.

Hmm not sure that would be some thing Chris is going to need to look into for you.
What version are you upgrading from?

Works for me in Photoshop and Paintshop Pro. Tis strange. Maybe Chris can answer that one. In the meantime, in the download you did for upgrading, just look for that .png file in the default themes images folder and edit that. Then upload to your theme's images section.

I was upgrading from 4.1.13 - I checked the default and believe it or not, the zone_gradient isnt there, lol
I'm just having horrible luck!
