    in my im / messages I want to change the colours in the speech bubbles.

    Message speech bubble colours are Bright blue and darkish grey. text is black.

    I want to change speech bubble colours, but how?

    What I can do..
    I go into palet and can change (primary) from bright blue to a light a orange / yellow colour. this works great.

    But can not change the grey speech bubble colour..

    What am I not doing correct in order to do this.

    any ideas ?

    thanks Mikel.

    hei Donna..
    screenshot as requested.

    as you can seethe speech bubbles are orange and grey. i need to change the grey to another color.

    i managed to change the orange from blue to orange by changing the palet (primary) colour but i cant seem to change the grey colour, i guess im looking in the wrong place ??

    Odd. My Pegasi theme doesn't do that. I don't have alternating colors. Are you sure you didn't change some other color someplace and it picked it up there as these use variables that are used in different places? I'll check again later today.

    Hei Donna.

    Just to confirm my actions.

    Theme: Pegasi
    Flavour: Default ( is the green colour scheme as created)

    actions taken to change colour:
    Appearance > Design > Palette > (colours) primary

    Colour was a blue but I changed it to light orange.

    Yeah I did that too and mine doesn't alternate like yours does. I'll go check again.

    Ok I see it now on my live site. Odd that my staging doesn't do it. 

    In the CSS tab of the style you are using, you can add the following but change the color hex to what you want:

    .message .post-body { background: #71c9f7; }
