We have detail pages for both official parts and unoffical parts, but they look similar (this is on purpose). It has been suggested that we differentiate them in some way, perhaps by some sort of color coding. I'm open to suggestions on ways to accomplish this.

Example:
Official Part

Unofficial Part

For the sake of consistency, I'd use the same colored background as in patterned parts reference pages (light yellow / light green)

So like around the image itself?

Yes. Background of the full page or just of the preview image...

Ok, around the image was what I was thinking too.

I've implemented this on the offical part detail pages. Thoughts?

No red. And I can't style the header text anyway. At least not without major changes to the PT code.

Now that I think about it, why are official parts yellow and unofficial green on the pattern summary? Should it be the other way around?

Yes, that would make sense !

And it would then coincide with the certification status.
