Hey guys, I made a website/social network for my Explorers group through a hosting company called NING. Which makes it pretty simple to make stuff. I have everything just how I want it, bar one rthing.
The text boxes where you input text are white, whereas everything eles is grey.
Does anyone know how to change the input box colour?
If someone could paste me a code or something I would be really grateful. :P

I know nothing whatsoever about CSS (i r teh n00b) so any help would begreatly appreciated.
Here's the site so far: www.columbusexplorers.ning.com - We're gonna buy a proper domain name soon, but we'll probably just have it redirect to this site. It just makes it easier to find.

Thanks, SabU.

It would be easier if we could see the code. The text box will be coded within some brackets that define what it is. The text could really be anything but could be part of a table, iframe or a php definition.

The brackets look something like <tr>"Your text is in here"</tr> The problem is without seeing it the letters inside those brackets could be anything <h1></h1>, <p></p>, whatever.

Once you determine what that is you need to go to the style sheet. I would imagine Ning uses external ones. In the style sheet find the corresponding Id for the bracket. Usually something like .hr if it was <hr> and change the info in there.

check out http://www.w3schools.com/ to learn info on that stuff.

Here you go:

<input type="text" style="background-color: gray" />

Where gray is any color you want, naturally.
