I've seen the border topic posted a lot, but the solutions posted aren't working for me. Lame.
The site is set up as a child theme and I'm trying to add a thin green border around the page - where the body/text/white background meets the grey bg with world stencils. Nothing seems to be working and it's getting annoying.
The other issue is changing the white of the text area to a different color. Can't figure that one out either. Thanks in advance.
