    Loving xf currently!

    I'm fiddling around trying to make a custom style to match my site's colour scheme - it's working well currently but I haven't found a way of changing either the text in the quote boxes, or the colour of the quote boxes themselves, without making other more global changes that I don't want to make. Is this possible?

    Also, is it possible to change the background of the text input box when you're making a post, so I can have it slightly darker than the default white?

    Thanks in advance.

    The quote boxes use these two background colors by default:

    Admin CP -> Appearance -> Style Properties -> Color Palette
    > @secondaryLighter
    > @secondaryLightest

    Or you can edit the CSS for the quote box if you want to affect only quote boxes:

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

    .bbCodeQuote .attribution
    	color: @contentText;
    	background: @secondaryLighter url(@imagePath/xenforo/gradients/category-23px-light.png) repeat-x top;
    	border-bottom: 1px solid @secondaryLight;
    .bbCodeQuote blockquote
    	font-size: 9pt;
    	font-style: italic;
    	padding: 10px;
    	background: @secondaryLightest url(@imagePath/xenforo/gradients/category-23px-light.png) repeat-x top;
    	border-radius: 5px;
    The text editor background is in your:

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

    body {background:#FFF;}
