    Hi there!

    I noticed the selection background color can be customized with Shoutbox.

    (I guess that’s the right word, in German: Die Farbe von markiertem Text)

    At the moment it’s defined like that:

    ::selection {

    background-color: #4581B9;


    but it won’t tell me any specific css file so I guess it must be js or alike.

    I would be so grateful if you could tell me how to change that!

    Thank you so much and all the best,


    PS just wanted to subscribe for the RSS feed for this post, getting this error: (Chrome/Mac)



    the background used for selections is the background primary color you set in your theme options. It’s set in includesadminregister-styles.php at

    'elements' =>'::selection',
    'key' =>'background-color',
    'value' => $primary

    I’ve no idea how that RSS error pops up – works fine for me.


    Thank you so much, works like a charm!

    I tried the RSS at home (MBP/Chrome) and it does not work as well – but in Safari it works.

    All the best :)


    Glad that I could help, I’ll check with Kriesi on that RSS issue.



    thanks for the notice. will try to solve that issue with the next site maintenance :)
