I've just upgraded from version 5 to the latest version 7.1. There are two issues which i cannot find an answer to;

- The Dnn header bar displayed when i log in as administrator is black and its menu items are barely legible. Especially when i try to insert or view the modules, the sliding bar is virtually invisible. I had to really hunt around to find that it was even there. Is there another way of displaying this bar? The structure is fine, but the colors are awful.

- The second issue deals with what i assume is the 'default' behavior of some buttons. The login button is a good example. It displays blue and the text only become legible when the cursor is moved on top of it. Is there a way to change that behavior. I get questions because users do not know what it is until i tell them to move the cursor over it.

Thanks for any help

This almost certainly caused by your site's skin. Try using the default (Gravity) skin.

If that looks legible then it confirms it is your skin.

As in DNN 7 there were some changes to the undelying CSS and most older skins have these kind of issues.
This is caused by the skins CSS influencing the DNN admin elements.

So you will have to tweak the CSS of your skin to make it DNN7 compatible.
BTW, it is normally not difficult or a lot of work, if you don't know how to do this yourself you can hire me to do it ;-)
