CSS problem trying to change quote color

Solved CSS problem trying to change quote color

Post by ErinTRO on Mon 5 Oct 2015 - 1:18

Hi, I'm Erin. Hello

I made a new forum and everything looks great with the changes I've made to the original skin which I downloaded from HitSkin and modified heavily:

except for trying to change the background color and the font color of the "quoted text" in a reply. The background is sort of white and the default text color is also white and therefore the text doesn't appear.

I need the default text color to be white since the main forum is blue.

I've tried to override the CSS with the !important code added into the CSS section, but it does nothing. It doesn't change the background and it doesn't change the font color.

The board is here:

I have tried the following replacing the variables with the colors I wanted but it still shows up WHITE:

background: #COLOR !important;

blockquote div{
color: #FONTCOLOR !important;

and also tried:

.quote {
background-color: green;

Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!


I just tried changing the message-box instead and it has solved my problem. Thanks, anyway! Posting the correction here in case anyone else has the same problem. I incorrectly looked for quote instead of message-box:

#message-box textarea {
color: #844F4F;
font-family: Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
width: 80%;
