in reply to background in <readmore> tags

I don't like the changed background either, and I had sucessfully turned it off. The relevant section from my user css in Display settings is this. Note "transparent".

div.readmore { background-color: transparent; padding-left: 2px; borde +r-left-width: 2px; border-left-color: #080; border-left-style: solid +}

    So that displays as a green bar left of the readmore section, but not slammed up against the characters, right?

    I used "inherit" rather than "transparent". But after reading the other responses on the thread, I changed it to a lighter grey that has the intended appearance.

    Later: I like that much better. I changed mine to have a larger gap and lighter color.

    Add a margin-left: -xx where xx is the sum of your chosen padding and border, to prevent the content from being shifted right relative to the rest. This way the text is in its normal position and the bar is in the existing left margin.

    My current settings:

    tr.reply-body ul.indent font[size="2"] { font-size: 100% } div.readmore { background-color: inherit; padding-left: 4px; border-left-width: 3px; border-left-color: #DfE; border-left-style: solid; margin-left: -7px; } textarea { width: 100% }
