    Sorry, I’ve been closing threads that are “done” due to getting bumped by spammers. Hopefully when the site gets upgraded to 2.1 this won’t be an issue.

    I deleted the snippet because it is now a full plugin available here

    :D

    Hmm.. I guess that wasn’t my issue after all.

    I’ve edited my bbpress.css file (the original) to reflect the color changes I need but it’s still showing the white text on #fafafa background instead of white text on #333333 background color.

    I assumed that the #fafafa in the bbpress.css needed to be changed to #333333 but it didn’t work. So I went into my Themes folders .css and changed everything that was listed as #fafafa to #333333 but it still didn’t work.

    The only change that was made, that carried over, was changing

    div.bbp-template-notice.info {

    border: #cee1ef 1px solid;

    background-color: #fafafa;

    to

    div.bbp-template-notice.info {

    border: #cee1ef 1px solid;

    background-color: #333333;

    All of the other changes I made to the bpress.css does not seem to be carrying over.

    I also changed the colors in the bbpress-rtl.css and that didn’t work either.

    Any thoughts?

    Without a link to your site I can’t say.

    To be honest I still don’t understand what isn’t working. Place the bbpress.css in your theme directory, edit it as you need, that should be it.

    The bbpress.css is in my theme directory but the only changes being made are to the “This category contains 0 topics and 0 replies” section. The lower table/cell backgrounds aren’t changing even though I made the changes in the .css file.

    Actually it’s my fault. I originally listed my plugin as 2.0 and 2.1 compatibly, when really it only works for 2.1 (which is currently in beta).

    Ahh, ok. Hmm… I guess I’ll just go through the other .css files in my theme and see if anything could be overwriting the table/cell background color in the original bbpress.css.

    Okay, this is insane. I am able to change the text color of the “Freshness” table, but I’m not able to change the background.

    http://bp.daevas.com/discussion/board/na/

    I’m stumped. I’ve even gone back and disabled ALL of the css files from my site and I’m still getting the same background colors for the table. I enabled the css again then I tinkered around with the Freshness table by adding “color: #ff0000″ to it. That changed the color or the text.

    .bbp-topic-freshness,

    .bbp-forum-freshness {

    text-align: center;

    width: 25%;

    color: #ff0000;

    }

    But, if I add “background-color: #ff0000;” it doesn’t change the background color.

    I don’t know what’s going on here. Disabling the CSS leaves the same background and editing the css doesn’t change it.

    Even adding the line “background-color: #ff0000;” to all tables without any background color listed does nothing. The only part that does change is the “This category contains 0 topics and 0 replies.” table.

    Woot! Found it. I literally opened every .css file on my site (252 files) and searched. Turns out, the Gantry Framework css/wordpress.css file had the following code in it:

    /* Other */

    .rt-wordpress tr.even td {padding: 5px;background: #666666;border-bottom: 1px solid #ddd;}

    .rt-wordpress tr.odd td {padding: 5px;background: #333333;border-bottom: 1px solid #ddd;}

    That was overwriting the code in the bbpress.css file.

    Mark this one as closed. :P
