Go to your Admin Panel and click "Display" then scroll down and choose "Colors" on the left-hand side, then on the right-hand side click "Css Stylesheet". Then in the top searchbox text field write in "chatbox", by doing that it will locate the CSS coding that applies to your chatbox. Then you will see numbers that look something like this: #191919; That is your hex colors. There are several of them. Some apply to the background color and others apply to the text color. Choose a hex color number at this address here:

Then carefully remove the old number its (6) digits long, and replace it with your new 6 digit color number. Save your settings and go look at your chatbox. You can keep changing it until you have the colors just how you want them.

Good luck

Do you mean the color of the row background when you write?

You'll find this in CSS and change the background color code:

.chatbox_row_1 {
    background-color: #ECF3F7;
    padding: 4px;
.chatbox_row_2 {
    background-color: #E1EBF2;
    padding: 4px;
.chatbox_row_3 {
    background-color: #CADCEB;
    padding: 4px;
