I have been trying to find the correct code inside the standard template to modify the content search web part (slide show) background color from black to something else.

enter image description here

I do not find anything in the slide show HTML template to allow me to change it. Also by selecting the container with F12 I do not grasp the whole container.

Anyone know how to do it?

  • You can search in DOM about the background color, You should find class with that CSS and override the class with your respected background color.

As the items slide, the selection would be undone so you need select the parent container. Here's the CSS

div.cbs-Slideshow {
  background-color: #3079ab;
