    that article did not help me at all.

    Here is what I did to fix this problem.

    1. Login to your wp-admin.php
    2. Go to "installed plugins"
    3. Find WP About Author and click on "edit" under its name.
    4. On the right side of the page it shows different files included in this plugin. Choose "wp-about-author/wp-about-author.css"
    5. You can change the color codes in there. ie you can change background color from #fffff to something else.

    all the coloring and margins and etc can be edited there.

    Color picker doesn't work for me either but I'd rather be able to edit the css anyway. Using the jetpack CSS editor it does not show any of my changes. When I choose the css file from plugins-editor it says it's inactive and also won't show any changes I make there.

    I am probably missing something obvious! Any suggestions?

    Same thing happened to me when I played around with .php files of the plugin. When I do something wrong and delete or add something that does not make any sense in that language whether its php or something else... the wordpress automatically deactivates the plugin. But when I change it back to the way it was and update it, it comes back on.

    To change the background color, I had to modify this line:

    .wp-about-author-containter-top
    {
    background-color: #f3f6ed;

    and it still didn't work, so I had to add the important declaration, like this:

    .wp-about-author-containter-top
    {
    background-color: #f3f6ed !important;

    now it works. I still don't know why I had to do that, since nothing else seems to be defining that class in the other CSS files.

    Thanks fourthwave. That solved it for me, although it was for the "around" not "top"
