I had changed the theme of my Wiki so that it could take on a more "Christmas" feel for the majority of December, but my infoboxes are still the same white color with a blue heading, and it REALLY clashes with the theme, what can I do to change the color of my infoboxes?

Hi there! Please link to your wiki. --Meighan WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 06:44, December 3, 2011 (UTC)
Hey, I'm assuming you're referring to c:vigilante8. It looks like you use the Infobox template for your infoboxes, and there's a really easy fix to change the colors. Click to edit it (in source mode), and change the hexadecimal codes (#3366CC, #FFFFFF) to colors that you think would be more appropriate. Check out this page for a nice sampling of possible choices.

Thank you, but I tried your advice, and I can't seem to get it to work, where am I supposed to put the codes in the source page? It doesn't seem to work.

At the third line of that page: ! colspan="2" style="background-color:#3366CC; color:#FFFFFF; font-size:120%; padding:1em;" color is for the text color. Font size is for how big the text will in comparison to the other text at the top part of the infobox.
Do not forget to save the infobox page, and refresh the pages you want to see it showing up, after you added the infobox tag and necessary information to the page.
