    Hello Thomas,

    first of all, congratulations on elegant Maxwell, such a clean environment, it is a pleasure to use it, thank you very much for that good eye!
    I am hoping to be able to customize it a little more but it is great so far.

    The only thing I would like to get some help with is: the comment window’s background color after each post is really dark. How do I change it to a lighter color?

    Also, can I change its text from: “leave a reply” to: “leave a comment” ?

    Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is

    Hello Adriana,

    Thanks so much for using Maxwell. I’m very glad to hear you like the theme :)

    You can use this CSS snippet to change the comment form:

    .highlander-dark #respond #comment-form-comment,
    .highlander-dark #respond .comment-form-service {
        background: rgba(255,255,255,0.2);
    .highlander-dark #respond #comment-form-comment textarea,
    .highlander-dark #respond .comment-form-fields p.comment-form-posting-as,
    .highlander-dark #respond .comment-form-service a,
    .highlander-dark #respond label {
        color: #222;

    Please copy the CSS code and insert it on Customize > CSS.

    The text is a part of the platform and can’t be changed, I’m sorry.
