Does a dark Atahualpa theme exist anywhere? Something based around a black background?

I love this theme. It is really working for me. Great work!

Whitstable, Kent, England.
The beauty of Atahualpa is that you can make it how you want it - you basically use the Theme Options to make your personal theme.

Dark usually means a black background with light text. In the Theme Options - Body, Text & Links tab the first option is 'Body Style' and you will probably have this:

font-size: 0.8em;
color: #000000;
background: #ffffff;

The color line means the text will be Black. The background line means the background will be White.
If you swap these two colors you will have white text on a black background.

This is just the start as there are a number of other places that these changes will be needed, such as the menu, sidebars etc. Having started simply your understanding and confidence will build as you experiment in other areas. If it goes horribly wrong you can always reset those options to the defaults.

I hope this helps.

Yes it does. Thank you.

That is what I was hoping to be able to do, but starting with a "default" black theme that I could then tweak. I also use gallery2 and it has colorpacks that you use to swap colors in your theme without hunting down all the code that needs changing.

Maybe that is what I hope. Colorpacks for WP or even Atahualpa that will allow the customization of the color scheme with the click of a button.

Does anybody know of any sites that have customized to a dark theme that I could look at for reference?

I am making a Dark theme and would like to change the HOVER colour of the Category and Pages links in my sidebar. Presently, they turn black upon rollover and I would prefer that they turn red (CC0000).

I would also like to change the link defualt colour for these items to WHITE from the current GREY.

Any assistance on this would be deeply appreciated,

Dr. Strangelove

Thank you for the reply, Juggledaddy.

Negative on the suggested fix -- Perhaps it is a matter for css,

Try these two CSS inserts. Change 'xxxxxx' to the color yoiu want.

this will set the hover color
HTML Code:
.widget ul li a:hover {
	color: #xxxxxx; 
	}
and this will set the solid color
HTML Code:
.widget ul li a:link, 
.widget ul li a:visited, 
.widget ul li a:active {
	color: #xxxxxx; 
	}
