[SOLVED] Please Advise: How to change Background color of comments display section
Hi there,

I'm trying to figure out how to change the color of the background of comments.
in the theme options there is:

"Style and configure comments"

Author comment highlighting is enabled and the colors are set to the right values, none of them is white (#ffffff). in spite of that comments have a white background when displayed, as you can see here:


the highlighted Author comment has the right color (brown), but the rest seems not to use the settings made in the theme options. also,

the line "2 Kommentare zu Krings & Herzberger & Baessler" has white background color.

Can anyone please help me and point me to the solution of this?

Thank you very much in advance, help is highly appreciated.

From germay,

Add this to ATO>Add HTML/CSS Inserts>CSS Inserts and change the color as desired.
HTML Code:

#commentform #comment {background:#fff;}

Thank you very much for your help,

but this didn't do the trick. Instead I found this in the same section:


ul.commentlist li.thread-odd, ul.commentlist li.thread-even {
margin: 5px 0;
padding: 10px;
border-bottom: solid 0px #fafafa;
background: #xxxxxx;

I changed the color to black and now it works.

Problem is: Now my comment form input area has a black background too, what to do about it?

Your help is much appreciated.

Me again,

figured it out myself: had to delete the code you suggested and nedo the settings in the "style comments" area. works now.

This theme is great, Your work allows me to make changes to the design of my website that I never would have imagined to be able to do without knowing a lot about php / css stuff.
