BBpress takes the background from child theme but not the changes in font color

  • The Guilty Mommy


    On my site, each post has a different background (darker shades of pink) and therefore a different font color to work with the background color. With the posts this works great, but in my bbpress forums, the background color changes but the color of the font takes the color only of the first post. The theme I used was Twentythirteen and then the child theme was a modified version of 2013 blue sequence. What am I doing wrong? I am slowly learning about CSS but have little knowledge this far. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    My page is

    Eventually I would love to change font size and style but I need to get it readable first. 🙂

  • Ha! This is kind of cool I reckon 🙂

    Your themes CSS loads after bbPress’ so adding the equiv from bbPress CSS to your thtmes CSS should do the trick:

    #bbpress-forums div.even,
    #bbpress-forums ul.even {
    	background-color: #fff;
    #bbpress-forums div.odd,
    #bbpress-forums ul.odd {
    	background-color: #fbfbfb;
