how can I change page tree colors

Hi Guys.

I am trying to change the color scheme for the left sidebar page tree.

It was easy enough to change the backgroud color in the space stylesheet with something like:

.acs-side-bar {
background-color: #33334d;

But I was not successful at changing the text color.

Anyone have experiance with this?

Hi Mordechai,

try this CSS:

.ia-fixed-sidebar div.plugin_pagetree ul.plugin_pagetree_children_list .plugin_pagetree_children_span a { color: #ff7f50; }

.ia-fixed-sidebar div.plugin_pagetree ul.plugin_pagetree_children_list li .plugin_pagetree_children_content .plugin_pagetree_current a { color: #359797; }

neither seems to have any affect.

where did you add the CSS? 

My Confluence 5.10.7 looks now like that:

I added the CSS to the Space Stylesheet:



Hi Thomas.

Your settings are now working for me.

Thanks for your help!

You're welcome :-)

I used these settings and am glad I found this suggestion! My question now is, do you have a way to change the look of just the parent pages in a page tree? Make them bigger or a different color than the child pages? 

This! I tried to do it yesterday but couldn't find out how
