Hi folks...I just purchased Platform Pro 1.5.1, and while I'm extremely happy with it thus far, I'm hoping you all might be able to help me tweak my theme a little bit. I've currently got my settings at "full-width design with canvas" and the body background color set to #001078. However, the problem I'm noticing is that some nested comments show up with that same dark, dark blue background, rendering them virtually unreadable. Here's an

of what I'm talking about. I'm hoping someone might be able to give me some feedback on how I can tweak my settings so that my nested comments aren't so unreadable...is there a way to keep my dark blue background while changing the background color for nested comments? I look forward to your feedback, and thanks in advance!

It's possible to change the background color for nested comments by adding this CSS to the CSS box in Custom Code:

I just tried adding the code you provided, but that doesn't seem to do anything to alter the background color of the nested comments.

It's empty, unless I insert the code Catrina provided with my own hex code.

It's fixed only because I changed the background color to white so that folks could read what they were writing.

There's a link to the problem I'm referencing....it's the dark blue areas that I'm mainly concerned with. Whatever the page background color is set to, those boxes end up that same color. All I'm trying to do is make it so that I can have a dark blue page background with a lighter color for those nested comments. As for my css, you'll have to be specific about what css you want me to post, because I don't have any custom css. I've tried using the css code that was posted by Tim and Catrina, but I had no luck with those codes, so I removed them rather than clutter things up. As it stands now, my custom css box is empty.
