    Hi, I would like to change my Blix blockquote background color from its existing white color to a very light shade of grey. Hope someone can help.

    Thanks Tezzer

    PS Is there a lighter shade of grey than #cccccc

    The lightest is FEFEFE, but I like FCFCFC.

    The background-color thing really depends on your theme. Open up your CSS file, search it (CTRL+F) for blockquote and change its background: or background-color: value. Good luck.

    Thanks for the colors, but I still can't find where to change the blockquote background color.

    I searched layout CSS and got this:

    blockquote {
    margin:0;
    padding:0 18px;
    font-style:normal;

    There is nothing there about background color

    I searched Spring Flavor CSS (Blix theme) and got nothing?

    Can anyone help?

    If a property does not exist in a css declaration, then you need only add it. So take:

    blockquote {
    margin:0;
    padding:0 18px;
    font-style:normal;
    }

    and make it:

    blockquote {
    margin:0;
    padding:0 18px;
    font-style:normal;
    background-color: #ccc;
    }

    Modify the color value to whatever suits.

    Thanks, I made the changes and was able to change the blockquote color to CCCCCC, but not to these lighter colors: FEFEFE or FCFCFC.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks, I have fixed it now. For some reason the light grey colors that were suggested didn't work, but this one did F5F5F5

    Thanks again
