How do I change the background color of "Thread display options"?


Well-known member

I'm looking at the style properties but unable to find the place where I can change the background color of "Thread Display Options" pull-down that appears in every forum.

What's the right place to edit it?

Change the background-color: rgb(252,252,255); line you see below. You can use rgb(), #xxxxxx, or even a reference to the color palette like you see for color: @primaryLighter; :

    position: absolute;
    bottom: -20px;
    left: 0px;
    line-height: 19px;
    width: 100%;
    text-align: center;
    #DiscussionListOptionsHandle a
        margin: 0 auto;
        display: block;
        color: @primaryLighter;
        outline: 0;
        width: 200px;
        font-size: 11px;
        background-color: rgb(252,252,255);
        border: 1px solid @primaryLighter;
        border-top: none;
        border-bottom-left-radius: 10px;
        border-bottom-right-radius: 10px;
