    I made a custom style and now when creating a new thread, the title window's cursor is the same color as the background as well as the text entered of course. What template do I need to look in to find the variable that is assigned to the text here?

    The message body text is fine. Thanks in advance.

    Actually, it would be a big help if people who posed these kinds of questions and figured out the answer for themselves would post the answer in their thread instead of "delete this, I figured it out." Not that this happens a lot on here but I see it on Flash help boards all the time and it's really frustrating -- I'll think I finally found an answer to something and then the post is, "never mind - I figured it out." Well good for you - meanwhile I'm still in coding hell. lol

    Touché. I know exactly what you mean because I have made a post or two just like this in reply to a question before at another forum site where it seems to happen often. The problem was that had I tried to explain what I did, it wouldn't have helped anyone really because I had it all fouled up. Instead of fixing it, I started from a backup save of the style. Hence the please delete.

    I try to export my style from time to time so that when it is all flubbed up, I just restore so to speak.

    Thanks to Jake for making a post of something that I was unaware of. So, my apologies to get your frustration level up but in the end we both most likely learned something in the end.

    Ah I see. :) And yeah, I have spent some hellish nights on other help forums - 50 threads in a row with "never mind I got it" or whatever. Or my next-favorite, "here's the corrected source code," and the file has been deleted. :D
