Is it possible to change the color of the workbox number badge


We have a theme in Confluence which makes the little blue badge showing the number of unread items in the workbox nearly invisible.

Is it possible to customize the color on this little icon? I want it to stand out more from the menu row.

Hi Svanta

If you use confluence 5:

The badge uses the same color, as defined for the create button. If you change this color in the colorscheme, you change the badge es well.

Another solution is to add a custom css stylesheet in the confluence admin:

body .mw-anchor.unread .badge {
    background-color:  red;
    color: #fff;

Ohhh, this css stylesheet did the trick! The right color and everything!!!! Thank you for the great tip! // Svante

Thank you so much, Nice!
