there is but thats going to also change the colors of other areas in your forum.

You can change it by editing your css code:

Admin CP > Manage Styles > Modify Style > select your stylesheet from the drop down menu - scroll all the way to the bottom and look for this code:

Code: [Select]
/* Alternating backgrounds for posts, and several other sections of the forum. */
.windowbg
{
color: #000000;
background-color: #ECEDF3;
}

That area is called "Windowbg". You can look at this color coded forum and also see the other areas the color will change:

It didn't work, does it only work on certain styles?

Thank You

nope it works on any stylesheet and I apologize for this - I forgot to add another section of code. The post backgrounds alternate and are tied to both the windowbg area and the windowbg2 area so both will need to be changed (sorry) .

To make both posts white here is what your code needs to be (keep in mind this will change several other areas on your forum to white as well):

Code: [Select]
/* Alternating backgrounds for posts, and several other sections of the forum. */
/* Alternating backgrounds for posts, and several other sections of the forum. */
.windowbg
{
color: #000000;
background-color: #FFFFFF;
}
.windowbg2
{
color: #3E432D;
background-color: #FFFFFF;
}
