(SOLVED) Simple CSS help needed to change background color

edited January 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 Help
I was able to modify most of the elements of the Embedded Theme to match my site using the custom.css file. However, I can't figure out how to change the light blue background for all of the posts. I just want it to be white, but I can't find the setting or line number in the custom.css file.

Does anyone know how to do it? Here is a screenshot of the theme section I want to change:


  • Try adding this to your theme and let me know if it works for you

    ul.MessageList li.Item {
    background-color: #FFFFFF;
  • Thanks Chuck. I found some help in the documentation which I had missed on my initial search. As it turns out you have to add some new custom code to the css file, but in the end I opted to leave it as the default. I like the fact that the background to the comment is blue if it is yours, and white if it is someone else's.
