A Weird One: Background Color UNeditable! (3 posts)

    Just building this: I am using the standard WP3.2 and Twentyeleven, latest versions and a plugin: WP About Author.

    The background of the author box displays as FFAAE8. I went into the plugin's css and changed it to F2F7FC. It won't change! I thought maybe something was overriding the background and search for ANY instance of FFAAE8 in ALL files. None exist.

    Using the Inspect element feature in my browser I see the line of code "element.style {
    background-color: #FFEAA8;
    }" and, of course, when I uncheck it I see the color I have in the plugins css.

    I have searched for any instance of element.style in the wordpress files to no avail.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Add !important to the end of the "background" property for the author box in your plugin's CSS sheet. I just tried it in my browser and it worked.

    Just to be clear what I mean, the background property should look like this:

    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #F2F7FC !important;
