XF 1.3 How To Change The Background Color


Active member
Once again I'm stumped on how to chance a color and hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I'VE Ive included a screenshot.

When you click on your name on the top right side, it brings you to a place where you can post a thread. In my situation, see the grey background behind my Orange user name, how do you change that from gray?

Also below that where you actually type your message, how do I change the black container or color around my avatar photo and where I post a message. I do not want my messages to be all black, and what to change that to a lighter color. Can someone please tell me how to do this.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Amaury, I went to building blocks and made the color changes but it didn't change on the skin, you think this could be hard coded ?
