The file size for a link doesn't matter because the forum is not hosting the actual file.
Wouldn't that be the same as when I tried to post a image hosted by another w/ URL? (See post #149 attachment, URL error.PNG)
As for the "tint track panel backgrounds" I found it one different click away, or should I say below in "Track Control Panels" Options>Preferances>Track Control Panel Got it working!

As for my files I really must have screwed them up. The gold theme does work..pretty sure. The others, guess I'd have to know exactly what there supposed to do.. to say for sure.

Awesome!
strange that your Track Control Panels settings page is in a different location, though.

I don't think the Solaris Brighter files are needed any more.
I'm pretty sure they were incorporated in an earlier update, so they are no longer necessary.
They were just add-on files to make the text on the layouts brighter and easier to read.

Apologies, I only glanced at that error screenshot and didn't notice what you were trying to upload was a link to the file and not the actual file.
Here's some magic for you:



.
all you needed to do was put the following code in your post with your reply;
Code:
[img]https://s15.postimg.cc/9i9aio2uz/Screenshot_7.png[/img]
notice it is just a direct link to the image between the ON and OFF IMG tags.
Another option is to just post it as a link like I did for the screenshots in the first post of this thread.
you put the URL between the URL tags like this:
Code:
[url=https://s15.postimg.cc/9i9aio2uz/Screenshot_7.png]Screenshot[/url]
The link will look like this:
Screenshot

if you just post the link it looks like this:
https://s15.postimg.cc/9i9aio2uz/Screenshot_7.png

Large screenshots can be troublesome on small screens (phones) so using the link version is preferable most of the time.

I just thought the up-loader in advanced post window did all that automatically.

Thanks Lucas for all your help.
Thank You too xpander.

You're welcome!
Glad you got everything sorted out.

NOTE: I updated my previous post to clarify Solaris Brighter files are no longer needed.
This files should be already included in the current version of the theme.
