where to make CSS changes?

where to make CSS changes? was created by carboncow
Where is the CSS in CB located, I didn't see it in the components folder?!?!?

I am not a coder but can tweak/read most code. I struggle with fonts in CSS and this is an example. My website has a blue background with white fonts in the template. When in the EDIT USER area of CB it creates a white background that (obviously) causes issues of readability with my white template fonts.

Does anyone know where the CSS is to change this and when I find the CSS in CB what tag/section this particular background item is?

I've often had to play guess and test to change background colors in some components CSS, I"m hoping someone can save me the time!



thank you for your time and consideration.

Shawn

did you ever figure out how to change this ? I have the same problem i would like to use the dark template of cb on a dark background of joomla template, but than I´m not able to see if i get a textfield (like in the cb profilebook) what I write. there is a white font of white background, basicly I´m writing blind.

Use Fireboard Firebug Inspect and click on what you want to change to find the filename and css variable of the css you need to change in the right pane.

Glad to help. I love that little tool. Just a side note... Google's new Chrome browser also has a javascript debug built in. That's pretty useful too. ;)
