Thanks for a reply i could not find that actual term "content_text_color" in the style vars so i looked at all content_color vars none seemed to work.
This same colour im looking to change is also here see attached.
Thank you!

What vB4 version are you running? I'm looking at vB 4.1.0 PL2 and using Firebug (http://getfirebug.com/whatisfirebug). If you use Firefox, try installing Firebug and then you can right click over the text you want to change, inspect element, see the CSS, and then find that CSS in vB.

If you link me to your profile page (open to guests) I could try and take a look for you.

Hmm, I'm thinking this might be it: shade_color

.formcontrols .blockrow .description {
color:{vb:stylevar shade_color};
font-size:{vb:stylevar small_fontSize};
max-width:{vb:stylevar form_columnright_width};
margin-{vb:stylevar left}:{vb:stylevar form_columnleft_width};

I would really like to know how you come up with the code as you can see the code i found did not match yours? I have been trying all different things in firebug. This would really help and save time in the future if I'm looking to change colours using firebug if you can explain please
