Changing Background Colors of Button



WE have been asked to change the background color and font color of the EDIT button - other requests might come to do this for other buttons as well.


Is there an easy way to do this?

Easy - no - you need to amend the css to do this.



Many thanks. I will pass that along.

Go to the look and feel section under the user interface section. In general, if it can't be done through the UI or with a supported plugin you probably don't really need to do it. Any changes you make to source code will need to be maintained and run the risk of Atlassian changing where they do it making reproducing the modification troublesome.

Thanks Joe. If we did have to do this, we would probably do this like Nic suggested thru CSS.
