Here you go make sure you followed 1 of them 2 ways of enabling custom themes in post #5 of this thread if you need help with them let me know.

Sorry with the slow reply.

I did try the tutorials I found but the removing the glow was a fail. I did manage to change the colour of the text and I am still playing around a bit but other things have come up so I don't have much time.

It looks like your happy with Bongo's custom theme anyway. If I do get it to work I'll post here for others.
