New Comments NOT color coded like the legend

In my forum, the threads with NEW posts do not change to the darker color that is specified. I thought that the CSS used to style the LEGEND would be the same as that to style the actual threads, but apparently that isn't true, since my legend has the correct colors (dark yellow, light yellow), but ALL my posts (new and read) have the light yellow color. Can anyone tell me what I messed up to make this happen? It occurred when I added the legend. Here's the board: http://mormonmomma.com/board/

    And if you disable the legend, the colors on the discussions go back the way they should be?

    No. I disabled the legend, but it's still not working. I can't figure out why the legend has the correct code, but the threads themselves don't.

    Is it possible this is a theme problem? i.e: did you modify the CSS in a new theme's style, but forgot to activate the theme itself?

    I modified the original CSS (after making a backup copy) but did not change themes. Perhaps if someone can tell me what class sets that color, I can figure it out. I thought it was the same one that the legend used.

    No, they use the same rules. It might be affected by how you customized it though. Here's the rules you'd need customize:
    .NoNewComments, #Discussions li.Read ul { background-color:#fffeec !important; } .NewComments, #Discussions li.Read.NewComments ul { background-color:#fefecc !important; }

    What is it that you've got right now?

    Changed it to read: .NoNewComments, #Discussions li.Read ul { background-color:#fffeec !important; } .NewComments, #Discussions li.Read.NewComments ul { background-color: #ffeda5 !important; } Thanks. I was missing the second "!important;" Funny thing is that the thread now darkens on new posts, but the two yellow colors I use are DIFFERENT from the two yellows that show up in the legend...

    Holy cow. I just created a dummy member to test things and the colors are different if I use my usual screenname than if I use the new dummy account. In my usual account the thread colors match the legend. In the other account, they do not. Instead, they match the colors on THIS board, but do not match the legend. I am completely at a loss.

    That sounds like a theme problem - it sounds like one user is using one style of your theme, and the other is using another style. If you go to your Settings, then to Themes & Styles, make sure the right theme and style is checked. Check the box that says "Apply this style to all users" and hit Save. See if that makes a difference.

    Good idea. Tried that, but it didn't fix the colors. :/

    I'm still looking for a solution and have a bit of craziness to add. I just logged onto my board under my usual name. This time I had THREE colors on the posts. (1) my specified light color for old threads (2) my specified dark color for threads with new commnets (3) a color that looks like the darker default color (like this board) that appeared on a new discussion that someone else had started. Any ideas?
