Table background color

  • heinohund



    Is there an easy way to get rid of the light blue background color in a table?

    I also want to hide the lines of the table?





    What table background are you speaking of? Not entirely sure I understand your question.





    I don’t see any light blue background color, it’s all gray did you figure it out?



    Try to put style="background-color: #ffffff; border: 0pt none;" into all your html tags (tr, th and td) which creates the table.



    Tee_888: Well grey light blue 🙂 I think it is the same.

    vasvaria: I maybe can do it that way. But I wonder where the color came from and if I can make it disappear in all tables



    In the theme’s style.css find the following codes:

    table {

    border-collapse: collapse;


    table td,

    table th,

    table tr {

    border: 1px solid #ccc;

    font-family: arial;

    padding: 2px 5px;


    table th {

    background: #e0e0e0;

    border-bottom-width: 2px;


    table tr {

    background: #f3f3f3;


    table tr.alternate {

    background: #fff;


    table#wp-calendar td,

    table#wp-calendar th,

    table#wp-calendar tr {

    border: none;


    These settings are responsible for the look of the tables. Modify them and voila… you’re done.

    By the way, if you don’t use child theme, you will loose these modifications at the next theme upgrade.




    I think I have to learn about child theme

    Best regards




    Try to not touch any parent files, because it will create a lot of issues and heach aches later on whenever the theme has updates, and huge upgrades.

    I posted this on Beginners resources it will help you create your child theme EASY and FAST with one click.

    This should help for those having a hard time understanding how to create a child theme.

    Download the plugin and literally click one button to create a full child theme. Your new folder on your ftp will show the new style.css, screenshot, style.rtl.

    After that your ready to edit your Child Theme without ever touching the original parent theme.



    You are the best! And I am now a happy man HURRAY!!!

    Big Smile!
