try this for the comments entry box and text color (white) of the comments entry box input[type="text"], input[type="password"], textarea, #dsq-content textarea { background-color: transparent; color: #FFFFFF; } try this for reply .comment-body{ background-color: transparent; }

Joie, Thanks for the reply. The code for the comments box worked great. The code for the reply box didn't go so well. If I use Firebug and highlight the box and then change the code to transparent it works. But I can't make sense of what I'm looking at. I included a screen shot to show you what I'm looking at: reply comments screen shot Thanks!

Ah, it doesn't change the children comments. Here is code you can add:

ul.children li#comment li.comment.byuser {background-color: transparent;}

This is still not working for me with threaded comments. Take a look: http://www.nickrbrown.com/politicians/total-lack-of-faith-in-gop-after-cnn-debat/#comments

You want to get rid of the white background, yes? Right now it is only firing on the even posts, because of code in the dynamic.css file (line 78) and the style.css file (line 120). To override the style issue, .commentlist ul.children .even { background: transparent; }

Seems to have fixed the child thread background, but now the odd parent posts are white background after a threaded comment.

That is a persistent snippet. Add: .commentlist .alt { background: transparent; }

That fixed all the comments, but that seems to now make even reply comments have a white text entry box rather than a transparent text box. Since my font color is white that means the commentor can't see what they write. One solution creates another problem, huh? lol

Add this and see if it does the trick! [code] .commentlist ul.children .even, .alt #commentform textarea { background-color: transparent; } [/code]

Please search our forums, before posting!

That did it. Thanks! Now if I can just figure out why buddpress is crashing after the update. Think all the links have gone bad. May have to reinstall it.
