I've had some complaints that the forum color keeps reverting back to the default blue.  That's because if you select your color from the color chooser in the upper right of the forum, it only temporarily changes the color for that browser session.

To PERMANENTLY change your theme color so that it always opens with your preferred color choice, under Profile go to Modify Profile -> Look and Layout.  Then under Current Theme click the (change) link.

Or, click this link;  ;)

Then, under Forum or Board Default on the Select Variant drop down box, choose the color you want to use and click the [Use this theme] link.  This will set your default theme color.  You may still use the color picker in the upper right to change the theme color temporarily if you like, but when you close and reopen the browser, it should always revert back to your preferred color choice instead of the forum's blue (aquamarine) default.

It works when you change it from your forum profile......I tried the link you gave first, and it didn't stick when I shut down and restarted my laptop, but then I tried using my profile setting and it took!   Thank you.....I like the purple color!  ;)

I'm presuming you want green, based on your prior message.

Let me see if I can change it for you.

I do like the look of this board.  It isn't overwhelming for the eyes.
