    I've been puzzeled for a while now, I've changed several colors (okay confess all colors) of the borderlinechaos theme but the one thing that doesn't want to work with me is the "Your Comment" box, this one stays the same color.

    Anybody an idea where I must look or what to do next, cause I'm really confused by now :)

    1. Change the url in your preferences so clicking on your name it doesn't take me to a 404
    2. If you are lazy to type http:// in front of an address I might be lazy to copy/paste into the address bar :)
    3. It's very simple. When seeing your blog, right click and "View Source". You'll see a line like:
    <textarea name="comment" style="border: 1px solid #000;" id="comment" cols="50" rows="6" tabindex="4"></textarea>
    Find it in the stylesheet or (not the correct way) adjust the inline styling.

    I don't have the theme in front of me, but most themes use the comments.php file, and use similar ids. Look for this line in your comments.php
    <textarea name="comment" id="comment" cols="100%" rows="10" tabindex="4"></textarea>
    If yours is the same, try adding #comment to your style sheet and put a background color in there.

    Okay there is a comment.php (incl the above lines which are posted) but there is not a <textarea name="comment" style="border: 1px solid #000;" id="comment" cols="50" rows="6" tabindex="4"></textarea> in the style.css or view source.
    There is a #comment in the style.css including several other commentboxes/posts and so on.
    I've changed the commentbox and the colors mixed, but still the ""Your Comment" box stays white.

    Moshu : changed my url adress and just plainly forgot to edit it here
    :(
    It's up-dated by now...and no, I typed it :)

    1. It always should be comments.php, not comment.php.
    2. What I copied was from viewing your source code - not from your style.css
    3. Why don't your read carefully what miklb posted: add your style to the #comment, not somewhere else.

    Apparently someway or the other I'm getting on your nerves Moshu, and this time I'm not apologizing.

    Thank you for the help.

    caramellamorbide, you might need to insert a new selector in your css (I looked, don't see it in there):

    .textarea {
    background:#whatevercoloryouwant;
    color:#000;
    }

    See if that helps....

    Never knew I can get an headache over this :)
    I did exactly what was suggested and somehow it didn't work, till I started to look a little bit futhur than my nose is and found the problem.
    There was a little differance.
    CommentS.php was talking about : comment and the Stylesheet was talking about commentS. Changed the missing S in the comments.php and things worked out perfectly.

    Thank you all for the help.

    Don't you just hate the little things that cause major headaches? Glad you got it sorted out though!
