'$bgcolor1' and '$bgcolor2', etc... is set in the theme.php

If, in my custom module pages I set my bgcolor to '$bgcolor1' I get this bright green color that is nowhere near the '$bgcolor1' variable.

Example:

Code:
<table width="100%" border="2" cellpadding="2" align="center" cellspacing="0" style="border-collapse: collapse;" bgcolor='$bgcolor2' bordercolor="#111111">

   <tr>
      <td height="25" colspan="2" align="left" bgcolor='$bgcolor1'><b><font class="content">Vital Statistics</font></b></td>
   </tr>
   <tr>
      <td align="center" bgcolor='$bgcolor2'>


What I want to do is make the colors of my module integrated with whichever theme is shown.

It should work exactly as you've described it.

That of course is the whole idea of having a theme.
I am the last person who should answer questions on themes BUT I will try.
I presume you have preciously declared the values of your $bgcolor like this
Code:
$bgcolor1 = "#FFFFFF";

$bgcolor2 = "#101070";
$bgcolor3 = "#e6e6e6";
$bgcolor4 = "#e6e6e6";
$textcolor1 = "#FFFFFF";
$textcolor2 = "#000000";
so that when you decalr bgcolor as having one the $ values it knows what it should be?

This is what I get. It doesn't matter what theme I use.

The current theme used.

Code:
/************************************************************/


/* Theme Colors Definition                                  */

/************************************************************/



$bgcolor1 = "#474646";

$bgcolor2 = "#474646";

$bgcolor3 = "#474646";

$bgcolor4 = "#474646";

$textcolor1 = "#FFFFFF";

$textcolor2 = "#FFFFFF";



In my modules pages.

Code:
global $module_name, $db, $prefix, $admin_file, $bgcolor1, $bgcolor2;

I was going to suggest making sure it was a global variable, but you've already done that. Can you display the value on the page? I'd guess it's being overwritten somewhere.

kguske - god catch!
I'm wondering whether there is a css or style sheet being included somewhere.

Another good point, Guardian2003. You can use a color picker to identify the HTML color, then a good source scanner like Crimson Editor to find where that exists in your source (php, css, js, etc.).

Donovan, is the original lines that you posted "wrapped" in a HEREDOC or is this code outside the <?php .... ?> tags?

By the way, when you look at the generated source wihtin the browser, what do you see after the bgcolor= text? I want to follow up on a "hunch"...

It was outside of php. I will have to check and view source.

please provide me with a link to view your website. I can also help if you can provide me with your ftp access for a short while. That color code is somewhere within your theme.

It would be good to find out first whether the $bgcolor1 is being "parsed" or being taken "literally". That is why I asked Donovan the question. He should be able to quickly tell by looking at the source of the HTML in his browser.

true but in the case he doesnt know. seeing the site and or my going into it would be the fastest way to fix it for him.

This seems to work.

Code:
<td align="center" bgcolor= <?php echo $bgcolor2 ?>><b><font class="title">Personnel File of <?php echo $soldierName ?></font></b></td>


Thanks everyone.

Wink

You're welcome.

By the way, if you are concerned about XHTML compliance, you may want to have it look like this :

bgcolor="<?php echo $bgcolor2 ?>">

For XHTML, every attribute must be quoted and that can be either single or double quotes.

Best regards,
montego
