2 problems can someone please help

  • Hello I am new to bbpress however eveything has been going fairly well. There are 2 problems however.

    Problem 1:

    When in the forums the text entry for replying to a post is transparent and it makes it look ugly and makes entering text difficult. how can I change the text entry box to something brighter?

    (the text box blends with the background)

    Problem 2:

    When multiple people post on a thread particularly their immages get cut out halfway.

    (first/main post is ok)

    Can someone please help me with these issues?

    Additional information:

    I am using custom community theme

    Thank you!

    Hi Janus. You’ll need to tweak some of your theme’s CSS. bbPress doesn’t currently have a ‘dark-theme’ permutation, so you’ll need to do it yourself, or enlist the help of someone that’s willing to do it for you.

    As far as the reply heights go, your theme is applying some comment styling to your replies. bbPress 2.1.2 comes with some extra CSS to prevent this, but again it’s a CSS issue that you can fix yourself.

    Thank you so much!

    problem 2 was solved by adding

    #bbpress-forums div.reply {
    height: auto;}

    however the other problem is still not solved and I believe the style.css is missing files.

    This is litteraly my whole css file

    I am fairly new to web design but I have a feeling there must be more somewhere.

    Does anyone know what code I could input to this file in order to fix problem one?

    Also as a bonus could anyone give me a code that could work for changing the background of the forum colour?

    I apologize for my “rookieness”

    Thanks in advance!
