I'm setting up a website with a dark grey background.

The front-end updating of the calendar by an authorized user is made of a popup with is at least partly transparent and with lettering of the wrong colours (white on white or black on dark), making the whole thing difficult to manage (see screenshot, though it gets worse further down the process)


Where can I change those particular settings? The 'dark background template' option is enabled but it doesn't reflect properly through this particular function.

The popup event editing is done using the component.php files from your template - check which css files its loading, I suspect its not setting the page background colour the way it should be

Thanks for that. As I've no idea how to amend this, I guess I'll go back to the template developer and ask him for an updated version.
