    Need some help with forum styling

    Hello!
    I have SMF 2.0.2
    I've been tweaking it a lot and now it's almost perfect. But one last thing which kinda bothers me (though it might not be so crucial for other, I don't know...).
    I'm attaching couple of jpeg.'s so it would be more clear what I mean.
    As you see on those images...the left part of body of each post is somewhat different in color. I mean that's where you see the name of the poster, etc.
    In my case, it's all ONE solid color from wall to wall, so to speak. There's no any border or a distinction between the part where the text resides and where the posters' stats are.

    So find the element that contains that left section and give it a different background colour and/or image.

    Sorry I was away for a few days.

    I don't have a clue how to do that.
    I tried to play with index.css adjusting poster and poster wrapper sections just to see that it doesn't work (I simply don't know how to do it RIGHT)

    here's the link to my forum:

    It seems that your forum has a 1px high background image for the post_wrapper class:

    You can edit this image and then re-upload it.

    Yeah...I'll explain. It's just one guy on UK forum advised me how to solve the problem by using a 1px wide bg line that stretches itself as needed automatically with "repeat -y" attribute.
    Well, I adjusted the colors in Photoshop and also deleted the mostright blue pixel to make outer border proportional. AND I saved the file in .png format (to make sure colors won't change as it happens in JPEG for some reason).

    And now everything works great!
