Couple issues while styling BBPress

    First issue I ran into is the example at the bottom of this page is no longer valid, but I did find the correct edits.

    Step by step guide to setting up a bbPress forum – part 3

    Second issue I am currently having is I am unable to find out how to change the “New topic” and “Reply To” backgrounds that show up at the bottom forums and topics.

    Lastly(for now) is that I am unable to change the reply header despite having added this to my css.

    #bbpress-forums div.bbp-reply-header {
    background-color: #111111;
    }

    My forums are located here: http://test.greatarchitect.us/forums/

    Thanks for any help.

    This worked for me…. Try a hard refresh (CRTL F5/CMD F5 I think), your CSS might be cached.

    
    #bbpress-forums div.bbp-topic-header,
    #bbpress-forums div.bbp-reply-header {
    background-color: #111111;
    }
    

    Use your browsers debug tools also, most browsers tools are pretty awesome, F12 will bring it up or right click an element and select ‘Inspect Element’

    Also could you update the codex with the correct edits you found, anyone can edit the codex, just login using your same username and password 🙂

    Ok I figured that one out. I forogt to add !important

    I was able to successfully use the Inspect Element to change those background as well. The only thing I couldn’t figure out is how to properly code changes to the textbox for bbp_topic_title. Not savvy enough to write my own without an example.

    I have also made the edits to that part 3 document.

    Awesome, thank you 🙂

    The _bbp_topic_title on the new form something like:

    
    #bbpress-forums fieldset.bbp-form p,
    #bbpress-forums fieldset.bbp-form textarea,
    #bbpress-forums fieldset.bbp-form select, 
    #bbpress-forums fieldset.bbp-form input {
    margin: 0 0 8px;
    background-color: #111111;
    }
    

    (The above includes a few other areas of bbPress forms you might be interested in)
