If you haven’t been visiting too often of late, you will discover that many things have changed around here and we want you to be part of those changes.

We are now open to public suggestions, if you have any idea you think we should write on, you can simply make your idea known to us by simple sending us a message via our contact page (make sure to tick suggestion as your department).

Whose Idea?

The Idea of writing about how to style your oxwall chat box was not my own making, it was the idea of a community site owner, powered by oxwall, whose name I will not mention in this article.

He pleaded with me not to make this article long and boring, so I will just have to keep it very short and simple.

Seeing is Believing!

Uhh! I should have guessed that from the beginning, viz… Here is your complete screenshot (no time for demo page).

The Fun Part!

Logon to Admin Dashboard > Appearance > Edit Theme > CSS and paste the following code into your custom CSS box.

/* —– Chat Styles by—- */
    background:none repeat scroll 0 0 #404040;
    box-shadow:0 2px 4px rgba(0,0,0,0.2);
    border:1px solid #404040;
    margin:0 0 0 10px
    border:1px solid #404040;
    margin:0 3px
.ow_dialog_item.odd .ow_dialog_in_item{
    background:none repeat scroll 0 0 #e8f7fc
    border:1px solid #ddd;
    border-radius:3px 3px 3px 3px;
    padding:3px 5px
.ow_chat_list ul li a.ow_chat_item{
.ow_chat_list ul li a:hover{
    background:none repeat scroll 0 0 #fff
.ow_chat_cont a:hover,.ow_chat_dialog_wrap a:hover,.ow_chat_notification_wrap a:hover{
.ow_chat_list ul li a{
    background:none repeat scroll 0 0 #f7f7f7;
    border:1px solid #aaa;
    padding:2px 3px
