custom code question on changing comment background

Recommended Posts

greenfly

hi everyone. sorry to bother you with suck a dull question but... im trying to change the background of the comments on the blog posts and have used firebug etc to ascertain some custom CSS as follows

'#social {
	  background-color: #3C9CD3;}'

it doesn't work. i have tried other selectors other than #social but have lost count of what i have tried. Can anyone help? thanks in advance

Great stuff, thank you Batman - that worked brilliantly. there are a few more bits of the comments box thing that are still white. for example, the '[i]or[/i]' in the header divider has a white background. i would therefor expect to put the following code into custom css [code]#social #social-divider {background-color: #3C9CD3;}[/code] or [code]#social .social-divider {background-color: #3C9CD3;}[/code] do you know what am i doing wrong? am i missing the point entirely? thanks for the swift answer.

Finally [code]#social .social-nav li a { background: #3C9CD3; }[/code] and [code]#social input#submit {background: #3C9CD3 !important;}[/code] I think that is all :) If your problem is resolve please "Accepted"
