    Is there a way to change the color of message text?

    Do you mean when you're reading messages, or when you're writing a message?

    If writing a message, it depends on your message editor. fseditor and SlyEdit allow changing the color of your text with the Ctrl-K hotkey.

    If you're reading using your own BBS, and if you're using DDMsgReader, the msgBodyColor setting in the theme configuration file for DDMsgReader sets the default message color used when reading messages.

    It looks like you were (probably) typing pipe codes in your message to get the colors.. It looks like you were using SlyEdit to edit your message - SlyEdit allows you to change your text color using Ctrl-K, so you shouldn't have to manually type pipe codes to get colors in your message.

    What about the regular FSEditor? (checking..) I can change color but not to the bright ones. Go fig.

    Yes, in fseditor (using it here), high intensity is an option: Ctrl-A H

    I just checked with FSEditor and it looks like it does indeed allow use of bright colors..? You do so by enabling the high intensity attribute, and then one of the colors.

    It was added in version 1.80.. In your SlyEdit.cfg, what do you have allowColorSelection set to?
