[Resolved] Changing text color on Comments page

  • I apologize for asking this question because I’m sure it is covered in here somewhere. I’ve been working all day to get this site up and running and between the various widgets and plug-ins I’ve been working with the Search function and FAQs here is making my eyes bleed.

    My site is currently using the Grunge Wall 3.6 theme. I noticed when looking at my test post that the text for the Comment form is the same color as the background.

    http://www.altemusprime.com/?p=1#

    Which .php file do I need to tinker with to change that text color? I’ve been searching through them (the background is #333333) but I can’t find anything that matches.

    Thanks,
    Jim

    Hey Jim,

    This would be in http://jimal.server101.com/wp-content/themes/grunge-wall/style.css your stylesheet.

    Find

    #commentform
    background: #333333;
    }

    and change to whatever you like 🙂

    Emil,
    Thanks for the reply. Where would I change the text color? I want to keep the background that shade of gray. I’m thinking white (#000000) would make the most sense. I’m not even finding the location of that text, which is where I would think the hex would be.

    Thanks again,
    Jim

    In #commentform add color: #000; you don’t even have to use the entire hex of #000000; #000; is good enough. Here is how this would look like:

    #commentform{
        background: #333;
        color: #000;
        padding: 10px;
        overflow: hidden;
        zoom:1;
        margin-top: 10px;
    }

    Emil

    Bingo! With the minor exception that I needed #fff (white) and not #000 (black) this did the trick. Thanks again for your expertise.

    No harm done, when you said white (#000000) I automatically combined white on black is what you need. Just a habit of mine 🙂

    I am glad that this helped.

    Cheers,

    Hi I am having the exact same problem. I am new to wordpress and have very limited knowledge on the css file. I have been looking through the instructions given in this post but I believe the theme that I am using from themeforest is set up differently. I would just like to change the text color for my comment box to black. Can you please help me?
