[SOLVED] Problems configuring comments

I'm trying to configure changes to the Comment box (the box that contains a comment) and the Comments Above box (the one liner box that says "x comments to "comment name").

Many of the configuration options for comments don't seem to work. Here are a couple examples:
  1. Changing the color in <<Comments / Style and configure Comments / Regular comment background color>> has no effect. The background color of the Comment box does not change. It is now set to light blue (e8e9f4) and it is beige (eeeae1) in the blog page. See link below.
  2. Changes to <<Center column / Next-Previous navigation / Style the Comments Above box>> have no effect. The background color is also set to light blue and it is white in the blog page.
URL of the blog (work in progress): http://julesgobeil.com/wordpress/

Is there a switch or another configuration option that blocks these changes ?

Using Wordpress 321 - Atahualpa 367 - ata-round theme - Windows 7 - Firefox 602

Thanks for your help

1) if you look at the CSS Inserts - towards the end - you will see some CSS that is overriding the previous settings
HTML Code:
ul.commentlist li.thread-odd, ul.commentlist li.thread-even {
margin: 5px 0;
padding: 10px;
background: #fff;
-khtml-border-radius: 10px;
border-radius: 10px;
border: solid 1px #e5e5e5;
get rid of the 'background: #fff;'

2) check the other settings in the CSS Inserts. Remember that an element that sits on another element will cover the bottom element. If you style the center area blue and then make the post container (which sits ion the center area) green, you won't see the blue since it will be covered.

try this, copy the contents of the CSS Inserts and save it in a text file (so you can go back to it.) now delete the contents of the CSS inserts and see if your changes are happening.

experiment a little and you might learn a lot.

Thanks juggledad !

Exactly the info I was looking for. It solved my problem immediately.

I have personnalised the theme quite a lot and my expertise is not that great... so I get stuck sometimes.

Many thanks for your help.
