[closed] change color of comment box in twenty ten (8 posts)

    Hello~ Thanks in advance for your help.
    I have been able to fumble my way by trial and error (for hours and hours and hours) of customizing my twenty ten theme. But for the life of me cannot find the solution to changing the background color of the comment box. I've tried searching forums, guessing, winging it, praying, osmosis, and I give up.
    Could someone please tell me exactly what code to put in the css editor (and where, line number would be good) to make it be color #333333 instead of whatever version of off-white it is now?? Pretty please with sugar on top.
    Sorry, I also don't know what version I have. Can't find that either and I searched for a long time on that too.


    PS. I love wordpress and blogging. ;-)

    Hi Christie, try line 55 in your style.css (but don't edit it there, use your custom CSS box or create a custom.css file to upload via ftp).

    input[type="text"], textarea {
    background: #F9F9F9;
    border: 1px solid #CCC;

    and change #CCC to your desired colour.

    I think :) I'm learning on the go too.

    PS If you use Chrome, and right click on the element you want to change, and go to "Inspect Element" you can find the ID or the class of the element, find that in the CSS and edit from there. Hope that helps!

    BTW don't copy and paste the code above, I've just copied that out of Chrome to give you an idea of what to look for....

    You need to touch the CSS of style.css

    unfortunately, you are in the wrong forum -
    for anything to do with WordPress.com, please ask at http://en.forums.wordpress.com/

    here is for WordPress.org - the difference http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    Whoops! Sorry. I leave now, tail between my legs. Perhaps that added to the confusion.
