I've changed the terminal colors and now irssi statusbars have white text on light blue background. I would like to change the foreground color of the irssi statusbars to black but can't figure out how to do it. I don't want to download a whole theme, I only want to change this one color.

Any idea? Thanks in advance!

If you are using gnome-terminal right click, profile, profile preferences, colors, palette, then pallete entry 5 is the background and entry 8 is the foreground.

Great, unfortunately I'm using OSX Terminal. It also sound like such a change would affect other things then the statusbar which uses the same color? –  Marlun Nov 14 '10 at 9:18
