Background problem in admin page

  • yoursm3


    After I updated graphene theme, admin page now has the same background of my website. Why? It is hard to see. Take a look at:

    Help, please!!

    URL to the website:




    Did you change the background element on your join/login page? I know I did this once, and saw it changes the background of the admin panel as well.



    I dont know what that is… i just updated the grephene theme.



    Okay, that’s not the problem. Your registration page looks normal. One sec, lemme keep looking.



    This is NOT a solution, only a temporary fix.

    I might get in trouble for posting this advice here. So, with that being said, I strongly urge you to use a child theme with graphene. If you already do, GREAT, and you’ll know where to add this css.

    If you don’t use a child theme, MAKE ONE NOW. But, in the meantime… try adding the following code to your “Custom CSS” option inside your admin panel -> appearance -> graphene options -> “Display Tab” -> custom css box.

    html, body, div, span, applet, object, iframe, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, p, blockquote, pre, a, abbr, acronym, address, big, cite, code, del, dfn, em, font, img, ins, kbd, q, s, samp, small, strike, strong, sub, sup, tt, var, b, u, i, center, dl, dt, dd, ol, ul, li, fieldset, form, label, legend, table, caption, tbody, tfoot, thead, tr, th, td {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
    border: 0 none;
    margin: 0;
    outline: 0 none;
    padding: 0;

    Be careful, I’m not sure of the results. I’m just trying to get your admin page visible to you until a better solution comes along.

    Be ready to remove this code from where you add it, if it makes your site go crazy.

    Josh, it’s the same issue causing your modified footer to appear in admin pages as well. It’s an issue where everything in the Custom CSS is being applied to the admin pages as well, when it shouldn’t.

    Try replacing the theme’s functions.php file with this updated one here:



    Ya know… mine went back to normal. And I have no idea why?? My footer is still the color I want, and it’s not in the admin panel anymore.

    Not really sure what caused this… as I’ve been doing a lot of different stuff. But I honestly don’t think I changed anything that would have affected it…

    I thought you moved those customisations from the Custom CSS into the child theme?



    You’re right. That’s probably what did it. (lot going on lately)

    So was it only affecting it when it was added to Custom CSS and not to a child theme?
