Changing the color of the backgrounds in Wikitable

  • Hello. I'm a Rollback user on the Grand Theft Auto Wiki. I was wondering if you could help with something:

    55px-FIB logo
    As you can see in the photo, our wiki has a black/greyish theme. That white background look very odd. Is there any way to change it forever? (MediaWiki or something) Or at least, something I can do for that particular Wikitable.

    Here's the link: http://gta.wikia.com/Law_Enforcement_Agencies_in_HD_Universe

    Thank you!

    • Hi, you can change the default color of a wikitable by using the following CSS:

      table.wikitable {
      	background-color: #696969;
      }

      This code will need to be placed in w:c:gta:MediaWiki:Wikia.css. If you cannot edit MediaWiki: pages, you may need to ask an admin to edit it for you.

      See Help:Color for a list of colors. I chose a dim gray color (#696969 in the code above), but if you want a different color, it's easy to change.


      Edit: Your MediaWiki:Wikia.css page on your wiki already has code to set the background of wikitables in the following block of code:

      table.wikitable,
      table.prettytable {
        margin: 1em 1em 1em 0;
        background: #f9f9f9;
        border: 1px #aaa solid;
        border-collapse: collapse;
        vertical-align:top;
      }

      So in your case you would just need to change the color itself from #f9f9f9 to whatever you want to change it to.

    • I know how to do it and also get color codes, but I'll have to ask an Admin since the page is protected. Thank you! :)

    • I see. That's why it didn't worked. Thanks again.
