How do I change the colour of the type box?

    I can't seem to find which section of the style properties controls the type box style. Where would I find that?

    Open editor_contents.css and change this on line 11: body {background:#FFF;}

    Okay, well that'll be why I couldn't find it then :) Thanks for your help - much appreciated!

    Brogan, do you know how to change the input font colour for the text you type into the type box? Cos if I change it to a dark colour (which we need for one of our dyslexic staff), the black font won't show up, so I need to change that too, but haven't managed to so far...

    It's the same template and code that Brogan pointed out. But you need to add a color attribute for the font.

    Admin CP -> Appearance -> Templates -> editor_contents.css

    Change this:

    body {background:#FFF;}
    ...to this:

    body {background:#FFF; color:#000;}
    Now you can change the colors to whatever you want, both background and font.
