I'm new to wp-Foro and using the Dark theme. After clearing the cache, the new dark colors do appear. But the color of the Forum Title is so dark that it almost matches the dark color behind it. I can't for the life of me figure out which of the colors controls this text as I've tried to change just about all of them with no luck. Once the Forum has been visited, the color becomes almost white, and this does show up correctly. I can change the hover color for visited Forums, but not the normal color. The attached file shows the problem. Note how the "AU SDK" and "VST3 SDK" are nearly un-readable because of the similarity of the background color, while "AAX SDK" looks OK, only because I have visited it once already and its color is white. 

My Wordpress links are hardcoded to blue, and that is definitely not being used for the Forum.

BTW: I did try adding this to the CSS

.wpfcl-a{color:#00ff00;}
#wpforo #wpforo-wrap a:hover{color:#00ff00;}
#wpforo #wpforo-wrap a:active {color:#00ff00;}
#wpforo #wpforo-wrap a { color:#00ff00; }
#wpforo #wpforo-wrap a:visited { color:#00ff00; }

To try to force all links to green - it did NOT fix the unvisited link color, which is still dark, but it did change the visited link color to bright green...

Hi @willpirkle

Please navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Styles admin page add the following code in "Custom CSS Code" textarea. 

#wpforo #wpforo-wrap #wpforo-title {
color: #00ff00;
}

#wpforo #wpforo-wrap .wpforo-forum-title a{
color: #00ff00;
}
#wpforo #wpforo-wrap .wpforo-forum-title a:visited{
color: #00ff00;
}
#wpforo #wpforo-wrap .wpforo-forum-title a:active{
color: #00ff00;
}
#wpforo #wpforo-wrap .wpforo-forum-title a:hover{
color: #00ff00;
}

Please don't forget to delete all caches before using.
