Style Properties: Changing forum list node background

#1
Hi guys,
Really enjoying how easy it is to change the forum style via Style Properties, but I have a question regarding the node backgrounds. When viewing the forum I want to change the background behind each node - but I can only find settings for the background behind 'node icon' 'node text block' or 'node title' - not the entire node line as a whole? Am I missing something here? :)

Also, the little preview window that pops into view when you hover over a thread - I can't seem to find the Style Property which controls this. For my main forum style I adjusted my @pagebackground and @contentbackground to transparent, as this suits my theme. However in doing this my preview window backgrounds went transparent too. So obviously I want to set them back to a solid colour :)

I am sure these settings all exist within the Style Properties.. I just can't seem to locate them. Thanks in advance guys!

I'm not sure what part of the node you mean but for the thread preview, check .xenPreviewTooltip in xenforo.css.

xFalcon, that would be the Category Strip.
Style Properties > Forum List > Category strip.


The other is the Description Tooltip.
Style Properties > Forum List > Description Tooltip.

Ah, I think I know what you mean.
You want this css .nodeList .categoryForumNodeInfo, .nodeList .forumNodeInfo, .nodeList .pageNodeInfo, .nodeList .linkNodeInfo which is in node_list.css.

Thanks for the speedy reply Brogan. I'll check the xenforo.css :)
As for the node - wanted to do the whole node itself.. ideally I want a background which goes behind the node icon, all the way through behind the node title, node text block... as per attached. I want to do a gradient on each node rather than just changing the background of the whole node list.. if that makes sense.

ahha then you don't want the category strip.

A screenshot always helps to establish exactly what you're wanting. :)
