Hey there. I got really close to what I was looking for already -



(The top post is what it currently looks like, the bottom is what I want it to look like, just so happens to look that way when you hover over it)

I managed to turn the background black by just throwing it in the code used to show links in Shouts...

    .shoutBody {
    padding: 0 0 10px 20px; /* top right bottom left padding */
    background-color: #000000;
    }

But can't figure out how to get rid of the header and outline grey.

Any ideas?

Hi pinstripesc! Try this css:
.gpWidget-shout div {
  background: #000;
}

While on the Shoutbox...

Is there a way to set the text field back at the bottom instead of the top?

Is there a way to use two different colored backgrounds to alternate between shouts?

Hi DarkThoughts!

I'm not sure what you mean by setting the text field back at the bottom... isn't it already there? Or are you using the "Shout Box Images & Links" mod which has an option named "var move_shout_to_top" which you can set to false.

The alternating background colors for each shout is already there... it uses the grid style from the control panel (Control Panel > Style Tools > Content Boxes (Widgets) > Grids tab... adjust the Odd Rows & Even Rows colors as desired.

Yes, I am using the Shoutbox Images & Links mod. I also found the "var move_shout_to_top" option and changed it to false. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

The alternating colors came back to me after going into Style Tools again. Funny thing is that after I changed it to the alternating colors, I found I really didn't care for it and changed it back.
