Looking to add text outline on the text in the logo and sub logo.
Looking for a code and where to put it.
Im using the fun blue temple.
I have been tring this code with no luck.
Inserting just under the logo and sublogo in the css file.
Maybe someone can tell me what im doing wrong here.

<style type="text/css">
.important_text {
outline-style: inherit;
outline-color: #ffffff;
outline-width: 1px;
}
.important_text_alt {
text-shadow: BLACK;
}
</style>

Try adding this to the logohead and logosub of the css for that template. Leave out the .important_text part for the logohead and also the important_text_alt for the logosub. Trial and error is my usual way to find things out, so this is not gospel but worth a try.

:hmm: thought that would of worked. Seems to be the place that is controlling the styling for both.

.logohead {
PADDING-LEFT: 25px;
FONT-WEIGHT: bold;
FONT-SIZE: 20pt;
VERTICAL-ALIGN: top;
COLOR: #ffffff;
PADDING-TOP: 25px;
FONT-FAMILY: Arial
outline-style: inherit;
outline-color: #ffffff;
outline-width: 1px;
}

.logosub { PADDING-LEFT: 15px;
FONT-SIZE: 12pt;
COLOR: #666666;
FONT-STYLE: italic;
FONT-FAMILY: Arial
text-shadow: BLACK;
}

Think you need to define more information for the text shadow, like the following:

text-shadow: black 0px 0px 5px;

Here is a link that may help explain it better that I ;)

I even got rid of the
.important_text_alt {
text-shadow: BLACK;
}
part thinking that may be doing something.
