    In your bbpress.css file, change the background of each of these:

    .entry-title {
    background: red;
    #bbpress-forums div.odd,
    #bbpress-forums ul.odd {
    background: yellow;
    #bbpress-forums div.even,
    #bbpress-forums ul.even {
    background: green;

    Just change those color names to hex codes to make them look a bit better.



    Hi Tecca,

    That didnt work. changing this codes doesnt reflect any changes on my forums page. in my Godaddy account i am changing this under

    webroot / wp-content / plugins / bbpress / templates / default / css / bbpress.css

    if you think am editing wrong file please let me know.



    It’s possible that your theme has a bbpress.css file which is overriding whatever you’re putting in the default file. Regardless, you should be editing the file that’s in your theme’s directory, which would look similar to:

    webroot / wp-content / themes / yourtheme / css / bbpress.css

    If the file isn’t in there or you don’t have that folder in your theme, copy and paste the file over.

    Also make sure you’re hard refreshing your browser to clear its cache, after making your changes (hold CTRL then press f5 on your keyboard, or press the browser’s refresh button a couple of times).
