Hello mariopap.

Please go to templates/your_template/custom/yjsg_template_custom.php on line #27 and #28 you will see this:

$cc_css .="::selection{background:".$style_color.";}";
$cc_css .="::-moz-selection{background:".$style_color.";}";

You can comment that or remove it so it can read your color from the custom.css file.

Thank you.

Thanks for reply me !

I have remove the code you are reffering but something its loading after the custom.css it seems and it gives other color: Screenshot by Lightshot , the file that css is reffering it just gives the webpage.

I dont understand why custom.css as the last file loaded not working .

I have even replace the code in your file yjsg_template_custom.php with :
$cc_css .="::selection{background:none repeat scroll 0 0 #cc1622;
color: #fff;}";
$cc_css .="::-moz-selection{background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #cc1622;
color: #fff;}";

But still no to go .

Please try to go inside the template manager and clear cash and save so it can render the new colors if that is not working please advise.

Thank you.

I m sorry to trouble you we can drop it and leave as it is, its supposed to be easy .

Please check your color.css also and see if there is also declared the selection bg.
After that do the clean cash and save and see if that works.

Thank you.

I dont have color.css, using eximium template.
I think we have spent lots of time , is just weird , dont know from where that selection on the top is coming, weird.


Thanks for your time.
