You've created a post with the viewer. You put it on your blog and you are not completely happy with the colors. What can you do?
ChessFlash automatically and dynamically picks the color it should use as its background color to best match your blog. In some cases it may not pick the best color. Or, maybe, it is "blending" and you want it to contrast. No worries, you can easily specify the background color it should use by entering it into the "Background Color Override" box.
Also, the "dark squares" color that ChessFlash uses will either be picked by ChessFlash if the "Default -- Automatic" color theme is used or it will be specified by the theme. You can easily specify the dark color ChessFlash should use by entering it into the "Dark Color Override" box. This will override the setting from the theme for the dark squares of the chessboard but other values from the theme will still be used.
You can override the dark color or the background color or both.
When you specify an override color you can do so by entering the standard html 6 digit hex value, or, the name of the color. ChessFlash knows 143 colors by name thanks to Stoyan Stefanov and his color parser script. The list of those colors are:aliceblue, antiquewhite, aqua, aquamarine, azure, beige, bisque, black, blanchedalmond, blue, blueviolet, brown, burlywood, cadetblue, chartreuse, chocolate, coral, cornflowerblue, cornsilk, crimson, cyan, darkblue, darkcyan, darkgoldenrod, darkgray, darkgreen, darkkhaki, darkmagenta, darkolivegreen, darkorange, darkorchid, darkred, darksalmon, darkseagreen, darkslateblue, darkslategray, darkturquoise, darkviolet, deeppink, deepskyblue, dimgray, dodgerblue, feldspar, firebrick, floralwhite, forestgreen, fuchsia, gainsboro, ghostwhite, gold, goldenrod, gray, green, greenyellow, honeydew, hotpink, indianred, indigo, ivory, khaki, lavender, lavenderblush, lawngreen, lemonchiffon, lightblue, lightcoral, lightcyan, lightgoldenrodyellow, lightgrey, lightgreen, lightpink, lightsalmon, lightseagreen, lightskyblue, lightslateblue, lightslategray, lightsteelblue, lightyellow, lime, limegreen, linen, magenta, maroon, mediumaquamarine, mediumblue, mediumorchid, mediumpurple, mediumseagreen, mediumslateblue, mediumspringgreen, mediumturquoise, mediumvioletred, midnightblue, mintcream, mistyrose, moccasin, navajowhite, navy, oldlace, olive, olivedrab, orange, orangered, orchid, palegoldenrod, palegreen, paleturquoise, palevioletred, papayawhip, peachpuff, peru, pink, plum, powderblue, purple, red, rosybrown, royalblue, saddlebrown, salmon, sandybrown, seagreen, seashell, sienna, silver, skyblue, slateblue, slategray, snow, springgreen, steelblue, tan, teal, thistle, tomato, turquoise, violet, violetred, wheat, white, whitesmoke, yellow, yellowgreen.
So, say I want "darkcyan" dark squares with a "darkslategray" background? I pick the "Default -- Automatic" color theme and enter "darkcyan" (without the quotes) in the "Dark Color Override" and "darkslategray" (without the quotes) in the "Background Color Override" box:
