I have discovered why the little forum name in Xananews changes color
*and* what those colors mean. Not bad for using xananews for a mere six
months. I should look into a career in cryptography.

From the Help Menu:

Options - Colours & Fonts


The Colours & Fonts section allows you to choose the font and colour for each
area in the workspace.

Message Tree




You can use the root 'Message Tree' item to select the font, font style and
background colour for all the Message Tree elements together.



Alternatively you can select an individual element to change the font, font
colour, font style and background colour. The following individual elements can
be selected:




Regular Messages The default colour for message headers

Messages To Me Messages in threads you've posted to

My Messages Messages written by you

XanaNews Messages Messages from other XanaNews users

Dormant Messages Messages with no unread replies

Replies to my messages Direct responses to your messages

Ignore Messages Messages marked as 'Ignore'





Note that the font style applies to messages that have been read. You can select
additional font styles for unread messages in the Message Tree settings



While it's fun to see other XanaNews users' messages in a different colour, its
not to everyone's taste. Turn the feature off in Message Tree settings, rather
than by changing the colour and font here.








Message Pane




You can use the root 'Message Pane' item to select the font, font style and
background colour for all the Message Pane elements together.



Alternatively you can select an individual element to change the font, font
colour, font style and background colour. The following individual elements can
be selected:




Regular Text The default colour for messages

Header Text The colour used to display headers in the message pane

Signatures Text The colour used to display signatures

Level 1 Quotes Used to display level 1 quotes

Level 2 Quotes Used to display level 2 quotes

Level 3 Quotes Used to display level 3 quotes







Message Editor




The Message Editor section allows you to select what font, font colour, font
style and background colour are used in the message editor.






Groups Tree




The Groups Tree section allows you to configure what font, font colour, font
style and background colour are used in the Subscribed Groups tree.




Note that the font style applies to messages that have been read. You can select
additional font styles for unread messages in the Groups Tree settings

Have an interview next Thursday. Funny thing about it, it is the post I filled as
a contractor when I first started at the City.
