How to Change Background Color/Image of Forum…

    @primus-palus

    If I view the index of the bbpress forum I can see my background image for my theme. When I click to go into a specific forum, the background is replaced with a color (off white).

    I imagine this is all CSS related and somewhere in the code. I however would like to set all forums to show the same background. I am using a theme called “Explicit” for my wordpress site.

    Thanks. I hate being new to this.

    Still need some help here. Problem I’m seeing is this:

    Black Background: http://www.betatestarena.com/forums/
    White Background: http://www.betatestarena.com/forum/announcements/

    I need to make that white part be black across all of my forums/subforums.

    This is coming from your theme, which seems to be setting lots of things in this area, some relating to the woocommerce elements of your theme.

    As this is a paid theme, I suggest you go to the theme’s support site for help is getting this fixed.

    ok, just because it was annoying me, I looked further

    you should have a folder in your theme called forums which has a number of .css files in it.

    As far as I can work out, somewhere you can set up schemes for your forums within this these, or another plugin, and you have selected theme 4?

    Anyway two .css files are active

    in http://www.betatestarena.com/forums/

    the page is using

    /forums/#4.css as it’s style file

    This has

    body.it-background {
    }
    

    ie not set, but uses

    body.custom-background {
      background-attachment: fixed;
      background-color: #000000;
      background-image: url("http://www.betatestarena.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/Background.png");
      background-position: center top;
      background-repeat: repeat-x;
    }
    

    to give you the background color

    In your other link – http://www.betatestarena.com/forum/announcements/

    the page is using

    /forums/ammouncements/#4.css as its style file

    which has

    body.it-background {
      background-image: none !important;
    }
    body.it-background {
      background-color: #D2D2D8 !important;
    }
    
    

    on lines 760 and 761

    which set the off-white color.

    so play with these settings to get what you want.
