Open the following file: phpbb/styles/your-style/theme/common.css,


Code: Select all

.bg1	{ background-color: #xxxxxx;}
.bg2	{ background-color: #xxxxxx; }
.bg3	{ background-color: #xxxxxx; }
And then edit the colour code as appropriate, I hope that helps :)

You can either change this in the ACP or just edit this in Dreamweaver or Notepad++ and upload
via your FTP, that is if you have access to it.

*EDIT: Change the 'xxxxxx' to your desired colour code.
