Changing colours in Studio theme activity panel

Hi – I’m trying to change the background colour of the activity panel (the slide out when you click “Our Community”:wink: in Studio theme.

Here’s what I’ve done:

1. Enabled child-studio theme

2. Added the following to style.css in studio-child

#panel {

padding-top: 10px;

border-top: 1px solid #444444;

width: 100%;

padding-bottom: 10px;

color: #999999;

background: #442812; <– this is the colour change

overflow: hidden;

position: relative;

z-index: 3;

display: none;


… but not getting any changes :slight_frown:

What am I doing wrong?
