[Solved] How can I change Private Message background color?

This discussion is related to the Dark Mist addon.

I've tried adding this to the end of the css code but it doesn't fix anything.

        .Mine { 
        background: #555; 
        }

        .Preview .Message,
         .Preview .Message p,
         .MessageList .Message,
         .MessageList .Message p { 
        color: #FFF;
        background: #555;
        }

        #MessageForm { 
        background: #555; 
        }

        #MessageForm h2 {
        background: #555;
        color: #FFF;
        }

    Sorry, I have changed all those things now and a few other things that I saw.

    Either download the new version of the theme or add this to the end of the custom.css file.

    .Box  .PanelCategories .Heading {
        color: #fff;
    }
    
    .Conversation .Item {
        background: #222;
        border-bottom: 1px solid #444;
    }
    
    .Conversations .Conversation  .Message {
        color: #fff;
    }
    
    #MessageForm {
        background: #333;
    }
    
    #MessageForm h2 {
        color: #fff;
    }
    
    #Status {
        background: #222;
        padding-bottom: 5px;
    }
    

    Say if you find anything else wrong, thanks.

  • Just wanna get rid of the blue that doesn't fit the color scheme. Am I going to have to edit core files to do this?

  • Ah man, thats all it needed? Cool. At work right now but I'll try it out when I get home. Thanks a lot. I'll let you know how it goes.

  • Oh my... its fixed! Thank you sir :)

    I think I had some of it fixed with the code above, but forgot to turn on dev mode for cloudflare so I was seeing cached css... -_-

    Again, thanks for the updated version.

  • Wait, no, this needs to be added as well to fix the color of the "Start a New Conversation" page.

    #ConversationForm form { background: #333; }
