Colors (colours)

We have an issue when working with multiple chat rooms of writing in the wrong room. When your mind is on the task in hand it's too easy to type in the wrong room - there is then a frenetic race to delete the transcript in case it offends or worse. Is there a way of colour coding the tabs or any other way you can think of making you think twice?

I should say at this point Propane is a really great product and nothing else comes close to meeting what we need!

    I don't expose any way to change the surrounding UI elements but it is possible to tweak the chat view's display with CSS or Javascript.

    In the release description for version 1.2 I showed an example (In the "Additional CSS Classes" section) which changes the bottom 'fade-to-white' to be red for a specific room.

    I use it anywhere that external people might be lurking in a room.
