You probably changed the color so it's the same as the background.

Anyway, read Don's blog entries and download the StyleVar Dictionary and the Skinning guide: vB4: Skinning Your Forum in 10 Easy Steps (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/entry.php?2373) and Advanced Styling using Templates: A Visual Dictionary for CMS and Forums (PDF) (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/entry.php?2393)

lol yeah i think i made the text transparent, its been several hrs and i still havent fixed it. Thanks Lynne. I have both PDF's open and have been going back and forth. im guessing the variables for my problem must be dated in the manuals.

I use the firefox addon firebug for playing with css. I couldn't live without it now!

The navbar is still screwed up and has a few hardcoded black colors as well as several instances of using body_background for the navbar text.
