How To Change The Color Of The Thesis Comment Box


change colors of comment box and text in thesis

Since I’ve had a few clients that have been using the Thesis theme, I’ve learned a thing or two about it, and have written a couple posts in the past. On one of those posts I received a question about changing the color of the comment box in Thesis and thought I would respond with a screencast. You’ll find the code snippets mentioned in the video,at the bottom of the post.

/* This changes the background color of the comments box */

.custom #comment_list {
background-color: #ccc;

/* This changes the text of the comments themselves */

.custom #comment_list .format_text p {
color: red;


I used “red” as a shorthand here just for ease and simplicity. But you can use one of many websites to find the exact color and hex code you need.

Do you have any other customization questions regarding Thesis or other WordPress themes? Post them in the comments!
