FFAHM: Fully Friendly Admin Highlighter

Last Update: Oct 8, 2014

This addon is 100% hooks based requiring no source edits to install.

Works with ElkArte: 1.0


This addon will highlight most part of admin area with light cyan when that area is on hover or mouse over.

There are two versions of this mod i.e. fixed version and changeable version. You can change light cyan color via addons page for the latter. However for the former, you need to change the light cyan color by editing its css file i.e. FFAHM.styles.css.

While changeable version is easier in terms of color changing, it is using addons database instead of text css file like the one in the fixed version.
