Trying to make a color background change

On my site I want to remove the background color from the registration form or just change it to #FFFFFF.

I am using Firefox Web Developer Tools and I see the entry I need to change (attached) but register does not appear to be a .css file. Maybe a .php file? In either case I cannot find it anywhere.

Under style menu in the Developer Tools it reads as follows...

#content .standard-form { Register#2 (Line 54)
-moz-border-radius:6px 6px 6px 6px;
background:none repeat scroll 0 0 #FFFFFF;
border-color:#CCCCCC #999999 #999999 #CCCCCC;

If I can find the css file to make my changes that is all I will need for now. Please see attached.

P.S. I had to resize the attachment because the last one failed. Hopefully this one will still make my point.

    Hiya drdave,

    Is there any way we can get a link?

    I want to remove the background color from the registration form or just change it to #FFFFFF.

    It looks like from the code you posted and the screengrab that the background IS white. I think you're using the Blogs MU theme with BuddyPress, but it'd be great if you could provide that info as well anytime you start a new post.

    If that's the case, then it looks like you're setup:
    background:none repeat scroll 0 0 #FFFFFF;
    That's white!

    Right now, I'm just not clear as to the issue, but if you can give me a link, I'm sure I can help you get this figured out quickly. :smiley:

    It is the Blog-Mu theme not sure why you did not see it because I did enter Blog-Mu from the selection list before posting. Maybe I should always put it in the body of my post. Sometimes I do sometimes I don't but I assume if I select it that the staff will see it. No problem though next time I will just add it in the body.

    And yes BuddyPress w/WPMU.

    Sorry that is Firebug I used not Web Dev but again I snapshot what I tested in Firebug. That is why I was able to come up with the results you see.

    I do apologize for not been able to send a link to the actual site (client orders, legal stuff) and why I sent the snapshot.

    If you can help from that snapshot fine If that is not sufficient then unfortunately I cannot do much more at the moment as my hands are tied as stated above.

    And I added the extra note in my initial post because the larger file size will not upload to your forums so I had to cut it in half in order to send it.

    The only reason you need !important is if you want to interrupt the normal flow of the CSS rules. It's not considered a "best practice" to use, is that the whole point of "cascading" stylesheets is to follow the flow of rules. I find that in some instances where CSS has been put into a plugin, it is better to drop in a rule into the CSS rather than edit the plugin.

    Anyway, if you've got the results you're after then you should be good to go! :smiley:
