Forum:Need to change text for entire wiki

My Shoutwiki has a terrible contrast with its text. The contents have blue text, which is fine; however the numbering of these contents is dark gray and the skin of the wiki is normal gray. I need the content numbering to be a more visible color: like bright red. I will send the link of my wiki only as a private message to whomever will assist me. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Pikazilla (talkcontribs) 12:13, 5 May 2018‎ (UTC).

You should be able to change the font color in your wiki MediaWiki:Common.css →
You will need to know what part of your wiki you want the color change. Pressing F12 should open the element box at the bottom of the screen. Then scroll up until the shade covers the text you want changed and note the element name. If you are using the traditional list...
  1. ONE
  2. TWO
This would be added to your MediaWiki:Common.css
ol {
   color: red;

The text is for content numbers. What is that under? Pikazilla (talk) 23:29, 8 May 2018 (UTC)
Google will probably give you the correct answer. I found this which might be what you need
/* Tell the wiki to not display numbers, but keep track of what the numbers should be */
ol li {
  counter-increment: list;
  list-style-type: none;
  position: relative;
/* Output the numbers using the counter() function, but use a custom color, and position the numbers how we want */
ol li:before {
  color: #e75204;
  content: counter(list) ".";
  left: -32px;
  position: absolute;
  text-align: right;
  width: 26px;

Please note that MediaWiki:Common.css will change the text colour in ALL skins. You can use the skin specific page to make tweaks to the particular skin. For example, Vector is MediaWiki:Vector.css, etc. --Lewis Cawte (talk) ShoutWiki Staff 11:17, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

Okay, I tried to input that code into the Common page but it's still not working. I want to see it as white first (#FFFFFF) but nothing happened.

Here is the link (I will delete this link, for privacy and security reasons, once this issue is resolved) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Pikazilla (talkcontribs) 13:19, 10 May 2018‎‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with --~~~~!

Leave a message on my talk page on your wiki with an example of where it is used. The wiki isn't editable by viewable by anyone other than those you invite and staff, so having a link to the site isn't really going to be an issue. --Lewis Cawte (talk) ShoutWiki Staff 14:23, 10 May 2018 (UTC)
