Chuck I am trying to change the background color of my custompal blocks to white with black fonts. can you lead me to the area that I can do that. Perhaps even give me the color number to put in?? ya I am a noob at this.

Mike more information is needed. For instance why would you not use css like the program does? Some specific info about what your doing your site etc would help. If your site already uses a css with a white background for blocks with black type it can be as simple as using a class call. For instance in a standalone the normal table row class for a block is tddetails and defined in each stylesheet. In vbulletin 3 is is alt1.

Ok the I am not familar with the css system and I did not want to change something and then screw things up. I did find out how to alter the custompla however and just enters a paypal donation setup. The background I would imagine is a stock one the software has set up as I did not change anything to do with colors or backgrounds.
When I open the css style I see alot of things that could be changed but I did not know which one would pertain to this particular part. and I didnt know what the impact would be if I did something globally.

Ok just one more quick on. This paypal is just for donations to the site and not part of whatever paypal maybe used for buying products. Or am I missing something?

The paypal posted here is merely your donations box correctly coded ;)
