is there an image discription that shows what color #2 chocolates to what area of the forum?  it would be much quicker and easier to style this with that  thanks

 

also I am looking to have the color 12 area and the color 3 area the same color except i wanna make the active tab a different color.  so basically the forum menu and the forum category are the same colors and only the tab is changed color if you are active on it

@techhnyne,

I'm sorry but i didn't follow you, what exactly you want to change? 

For a specific changes, I recommend use CSS codes provided with each color description in this: https://wpforo.com/docs/root/forum-themes/theme-styles/

@robertbasically im looking to edit the class name son the elements so i can switch the colors around with out them changing things i dont want.  for instance 12  I only want 12 to effect

 #wpforo #wpforo-wrap .wpf-button{background-color:$12;}

and nothing else
where can i go to edit those  colors.css?   go I just copy the

 #wpforo #wpforo-wrap #wpforo-menu .current_page_item {background-color:$12!important;}

 

to a child css sheet and change  it to

#wpforo #wpforo-wrap #wpforo-menu .current_page_item {background-color:$3!important;}

since i want that to have the colors of 3?

I think I maybe figured it out while reading

@techhnyne,

All custom CSS should be added in Dashboard  >Forums > Settings > Styles > Custom CSS code textarea. You should save, delete all caches, then navigate to forum front-end and press Ctrl+F5 to reset browser cache.

 

$12 and $3 are color variables, you should replace those to your preferred color, the colors must be hexadecan colors like #000000 (black), example:

 #wpforo #wpforo-wrap .wpf-button{background-color:#000000;}
#wpforo #wpforo-wrap .wpf-button{background-color:#000000 !important;}

you can find those in the same admin page by clicking on the color pickers or select it using online tools: https://htmlcolorcodes.com/

@techhnyne,

Please try to use the following code, just change color attribute to background:

#wpforo #wpforo-wrap .wpforo-post .wpforo-attached-file {
background:#81D742!important;
}

See the screenshot below:

@techhnyne,

Please use the following CSS code to change the post create border color:

#wpforo #wpforo-wrap #wpf-post-create{
border: 1px solid #6f00aa;
}

Use the following one to change the reply button border color:

#wpforo #wpforo-wrap .wpf-post-create input[type=submit] {
border: 1px solid #6f00aa;
}

Please note the red marked value can be changed.

In any case, don't forget to delete all caches and press CTRL+F5(twice) on the frontend before checking
