Dropdowns get background from parent website


Dropdown boxes from the irite menu display the same background as the front end website - the css used in front end is not present in the backend page.

Site address is If contacted directly I can furnish a username and password to enable looking at actual irite screen

I've worked this one out but..

I think its still an error

I have linked to my css file to make my styles available

I have a single style sheet with all my settings in and irite seems to add the page background set in the css to the dropdowns.

I've unlinked for now I guess I could have multiple style sheets to overcome this but I like to have a single stylesheet so it is easy to find everything

If you use multiple style sheets, do you still have the problem?

If not, make sure the Styles being used by iRite are listed near the bottom of your css file so that they can over ride the styles higher up in the page.

If you could put together a sample page with just iRite on it for troubleshooting, it would help us get to the bottom of the issue pretty quick.
