Hello please post your forum URL! Are you talking about the text color or the back ground color both can be done i belive!


TO start off give this a try, add it to your css

Code:
.panel {
    background-color: rgb(229, 241, 249);}
just replace 229,241,249 with the color of your choices RGB code!

Thanks! My url is http://cvas.forumotion.com/
It's also over there to the left in the username box!
I didn't post it because I don't have the Homepage message activated, yet.

I wanted to know my options first.

Thanks for your help and I will try what you suggested.Very Happy

.....(time passes) .....
Okay I tried it with new RGB numbers and the color does not change. I even added !important to the end of the code but there was no difference in color. The color remains the same as the main background color of the forum tables.

Sir. Mayo .panel is a BB3 class. She's BB2.

Castellana go to templates, index_body. On the very top, third row, find this::

Code:
<table class="forumline" width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0">
Replace it with this::

Code:
<table class="homebox" width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0">
Save and publish.

Than add this to CSS and it would work::

Code:
.homebox tbody tr td {
  background-color: pink;
}
Change pink to whatever.

Example of it working:: http://tikitiki.forumcroatian.com/

I don't quite understand the second question. Clear it up a bit please.

No problem at all, Sir Mayo. I got a chance to try something and now I know a little bit more about how my forum works. Thanks for your help.

Nera, the code works perfectly! Very good
Thanks for helping out.

This is solved, butI don't see the "solved" icon to click.
