  • Where to change these colors

    Need some help finding where to edit the color for the below. The first one is a topic off of the main page. I'm trying to change the whole white area within the picture.

    This one is from the first screen on the profile page of the user.

    I've used firebug, but haven't had much luck finding them, but I will admit I'm still a bit new to it.

    The white background in the first image is taken from the 'wrapper_background' StyleVar. If you don't want to change that or it affects areas you don't want affected, try adding this to the css_additional.css template:

    .topic-list-container .topic-list {
    background-color: VALUE;
    For the profile page, edit the 'profile_content_background' StyleVar

      Wow, I must be blind or something.. Thank you Trevor.

      Hmm, I checked, but wrapper_background isn't the proper StyleVar. This is what I get when I change it to another color besides transparent.

      And then I have changed the profile_content_background, but it continues to stay white.

          Mark, it seems that the stylevar you mentioned works, but for some reason if you set Primary Module Background that overwrites the wrapper background. I don't think it should, but it does. So I had to set my wrapper_background to transparent and then set the color with the primary module background.

            I am still seeing white between the Forum title and the latest activity module.
