Ambiru Background Color (12 posts)

    I am using the Ambiru theme on my website (www.drshakarchi.com, big mess). As you can see I already did a little tweaking with the width.

    I am trying to change the background color. Not the black, but the white background. I want to change it to CCFF99 and all my CSS attempts have failed. How do I change that?

    Pre-Thanks everyone.

    how about linking to an actual wordpress install -- THIS:

    http://www.drshakarchi.com

    is NOT where WordPress is installed.

    In your style.css file, change this:

    #wrap{
    	background:#fff;
    	border-left:7px solid #eee;
    	border-right:7px solid #eee;
    	margin:0 auto;
    	padding:0 15px;
    	text-align:left;
    	width:500px;
    }

    to:

    #wrap{
    	background:#CCFF99;
    	border-left:7px solid #eee;
    	border-right:7px solid #eee;
    	margin:0 auto;
    	padding:0 15px;
    	text-align:left;
    	width:500px;
    }

    Note there's also a border left and right set. If you want these to match, you'll need to change the #eee in the second and third lines too. :)

    Thanks!
    And also about the header image. I tried changing header.png in the Theme's folder to the header I want but it dosen't work. Why isn't it working?

    ON second thought apparently it takes a few hours for the CSS code to settle in.

    Thanks sewmyheadon (will do if you give me an address)!

    ON THIRD thought (I know it is getting annoying), the header is still not changing.

    Any ideas anyone?

    Hi aviationalyours,

    I'm seeing a different header image now. If you're not, you may want to clear your browser's cache and reload the page.

    CSS changes definitely don't need time to 'settle in,' but sometimes a browser caches the old data until you refresh or clear the cache.

    You can contact me through my blog, if you like. :) Just click on my username for the URL.

    Cache clear and refreshed. Same dif. I tried it on internet explorer. I tried it on another PC and a Linux machine. Same same.

    I think I know why. My ISP (the only one here in Qatar) uses a shared ip address for everyone. So everyone goes through two DNS servers two filter out the stuff my ISP wants filtered out. It's complex but I rely on my ISP, they clear their cache every once in a while. So it will take time (my server is in the US). Tomorrow I'll go to college and they use a T3 line from somewhere else. I can probably look at it correctly.

    Since you're looking at something different, is it a 'medical' header and the background is green?

    I already checked your blog (two steps ahead!) So you use Ubuntu or what? I use Xubuntu on an Eee PC and Soon Ubuntu 8.10 on a computer im building. On a future project, im considering putting 53 flavours of Linux/Unix/BSD/OSX/Windows(unfortunately). That might be interesting :)

    Hey Aviationalyours,

    Ah, that's strange that your ISP could cache even that info. Can you use a service like OpenDNS instead, or isn't that available for you?

    Since you're looking at something different, is it a 'medical' header and the background is green?

    It is a medical header with a surgeon on the left looking right towards a blurry portion of the image and the site name's on the far right.

    The site name happens to be a bit hard to see (white text on a very light background, so I'd suggest goosing your CSS colors to something like:

    #header h1 a {
    color:#579;
    }
    
    #header p {
    color:#777;
    font-size:1em;
    margin-top:-0.5em;
    }

    So you use Ubuntu or what?

    Absolutely. Linux all the way, Baby!

    Currently, I run Ubuntu 8.04 on a desktop, laptop and a few servers and Linux Mint (Ubuntu derivative) on another laptop.

    53 flavors, eh? That should be fun. :) I don't even dual boot anymore; preferring to use VirtualBox and VMWare for testing other OSs, and, erm, the occasional Windows browser testing. Sigh.

    Yah my ISP is crazy. I do actually use OpenDNS. That is what I meant by 'two' DNS servers. But it is limited, so the only think that works is that it is faster. And my ISP's DNS server usually blacks-out so I tend to rely on OpenDNS then.

    Thanks for the info! Big help. I'll fix it up tomorrow from college.

    Oh and Linux question, Can GRUB even support 53 Os'es (I'll obviously remove the safe boot-ups and stuff)?

    And no need for Windows browser setting. I just so a Wine plugin the other day that lets you install multiple version of IE and any other browser.

    Ok well, end of thread. Thanks a LOT. No really, a LOT. Now I can get it done for my client super quick.

    For the record my website is forithink.com . It is currently messed up with no visitors and no money. So I'll just turn it into advertisement for web designing, just to give people like you :) some competition.

    You're welcome!

    Darn good question. I'd guess so, but haven't ever tried more than three.

    And no need for Windows browser setting. I just so a Wine plugin the other day that lets you install multiple version of IE and any other browser.

    I've seen that as well. I use Windows in a VM since I can install a lot of windows browsers with ease.

    I saw it earlier. :)

    If I can make a recommendation:

    I totally missed your category navigation because it's down at the bottom of your left hand column under Google ads, your Twitter box and Subscribe box. Promoting these category links to the top will make it easier for visitors to find your content. :)

    Thanks for the tweet. :)
