Need help with some colour alterations.

  • andywilliams244


    I’ve been trying to reflets the colours on my forum, here:

    To match the colour scheme on my main website, here:

    But when I change the colours to the correct colour pallet, it remains all one colour. (#222222)

    Here is what it looks like:

    I want it to the outside is #222222 but keep the inside of the white border #333333

    But as it appears in the image it all comes out as #222222

    (Also, I would like to apologise for the clutter caused on the board. My topic got locked, I’m assuming it was because of the long coding I posted. So I would like to apologise for that, and hope this version is adequate.)

    If changes made by you are not reflecting in CSS, then there is something which is over riding it. You need to catch that.

    Like the priority order in Inline, Internal and then External.

    Hope that helps ;)



    I’ve read through that, but I have no idea what could be over riding it.

    Can anybody help?



    In your #wrapper, you have 333333 (you need the #, like #333333). Then, in your #main, you need to add background-color: #222222;. That fixed it for me, locally. I think it will do the same for you.

    You can also validate your CSS here to be certain you didn’t miss anything else: (it’s jut a link to the W3C site, but it’s a long URL.)

    There are other places you forgot the hash # in front of 333333.
