To change text colors, you will be looking for the color property. To change the background colors, you are looking for the background property. Set them on the selector(s) of your choice. =) Check out Visual OldSchool Profile Guide for more detailed help regarding OldSchool type profiles.


How can I change the look fo the Contact box; where it has Add, PM, Trade...?

Make sure you keep both single quotes (' ') there, and if you have other styles under the .panel selector, make sure you put a semicolon at the end of each style property. If you copy and paste your exact code here, it'd be easier to help you.

Kitty is right, that was a mistake on my part. The semi-colon (;) should help.

I apologize. Keep the semi-colon in the curly brackets.

Is this what you wanted? Sorry I'm not good with codes.

Putting the BBcode IMG tag in there, if that's what you did, is the problem

Haha don't worry about it, if you don't know what you're doing, it's completely normal to mess up ^^ Good thing it got it working though (or I don't know what could've been wrong XD)

Lol. It was my fault. But, the picture I chose was a total fail since it covers up half my comments and about me text.

Ah, true, you'd have to find a lighter colored one or change the color of your text razz

Heck with the picture being the background lol. Do you know how to change the color of the background of the boxes from white to black?

Though that is what this entire thread was originally about (so you could go back and read), to make things easier, here's the code anyway:
.panel{
background:black;
}
Though you said you wanted it to be black, and that's what that code does, for future reference you may also change "black" to any color you want, either by name or by hex code.
