How to change the site's background colour for DMs

I often hear members getting confused as to whether they are replying to a thread or DM because they look the same. I assume its a fairly regular issue for others as i’ve heard it so many times now in our forum, but i couldn’t find a solution here. Maybe its too simple, or i just missed it.

Has anyone changed their background colour when users are in their messages section^, and would you mind sharing how you did it?

Latest version of Discourse shipped with a feature to tackle this exact problem. Now DMs have a very different post design, so you can differentiate one from another at a glance. Did you check it out?


thank you, i just upgraded
