    When you make a change to a stylevar, make sure you then go to Maintenance > Clear System Cache and also make sure you do a Force Refresh of the browser page or you'll just get the cached CSS.

    I was looking at correct theme, I cant edit the default styles anyways and have to create a new one. Yes it was the right one. Not sure what the issue was...... It showed that was changed in the Admin CP when I made the change originally. I had to go back in and save it again for some reason for it to take this time. Must of had a hiccup originally. Thanks for getting back to me!

    It definitely is that one. I just tested it.

    Are you viewing the site in the correct theme?

    Note the difference between "vBulletin Default Style" and "Default Style" - although they both look the same, they are two distinct themes. If you're editing "Default Style" but viewing the site in "vBulletin Default Style" (which is what is displayed to guests looking at your site) then you aren't going to see the changes.

    Doesn't appear to have worked so it must be something else. I didn't notice anything change and its been at least 20 minutes. Any other ideas of which one it could be?

    I believe that is the stylevar primary_module_subheader_background.

    Cloud is a bit slower as the CSS files need to replicate across different servers. We're working on that and newer replication is faster so instead of 5-10 minutes it is 1-2. Still not instant but more bearable we hope.

    Next time, try emptying the browser cache, and doing a double refresh. The changes should show up immediately. System cache may need to be flushed also.

    Well I learned (and this is a big pain) that after I change the color and it saves it can take 5 to 10 minutes for it to actually show up on website. Thats why when it didnt change with grey I went to black and thought it worked but it was just a delay. Later it turned to black. So not know what does what exactly is a huge hassle because I have to wait for something to change to see what it is.

    That seems odd. You might want to check how it looks in multiple browsers (Firefox, Explorer, Safari, Chrome). You could also experiment with using a plain background image instead of a background color. Just guessing, I am still learning how this works myself.

    Thanks that did the trick. I had to change it too black though to get a grey color.

    Try the stylevar wrapper_background as McWebmaster suggested.

    This is the general area I am talking about, basic complaint is that the forum is to bright so I am looking to change the white to more grayish.

    It does take a lot of trial and error, which is not fast.

    I guess you have found the style editor: Styles & Templates > Style Manager > Edit Style

    In the Global category, try editing wrapper_background. I don't recall everything that will change if you do this, but I think it's generally the area you are describing.
