    Here's a quick color guide showing what changes what which you can do by adjusting in EXTRA.CSS tempate though I'm sure it can all be done through style properties also.


    .message .messageUserBlock {  border: 1px solid purple; background: none yellow }
    .message .messageUserBlock div.avatarHolder { background-color: green; }
    .message .messageUserBlock .extraUserInfo { background-color: blue; }

    or if you want to do it through style properties the screenshot is where you adjust corresponding to your screenshot.

    Goto Style Properties >> Message layout

    It does... and at first it can get to be confusing. After you play with it a bit then you will start to grasp it. It took me a while - but look at me now, I can even give help to others at times! :LOL:
    Suggestion... make a child style of your current style and then go to town playing with it (tweaking here and there to see what changes). Do NOT make it a style that users can choose (you will still be able to since you are an Admin). If you have a developer board set up then you can just do it on that - but when I first started I hadn't set up a separate restricted site (I have one now on my server here at the house that I duplicate all my forums on but I still find that I do my tweaking on a child style of my live site).
