    Do you mean beyond the edges of the site on each side? In that case, change the CSS here:

    body {
       background-color: #??????;
    #wrapper {
       background-color: #??????;

    The first will be outside the pages and the second the background in the site pages.

    Menu in this CSS:

    #menu_cont ul li a {

    I am having this same problem. I have looked up this topic in the help forum, but whenever I look up any keywords to the code that needs to be changed, it does not show up.

    I just want my entire background to be #fff- right now the sides are grey so I need them to be #fff. Please help! I'm very new at this. My website is http://bucketonmyhead.com/ .

    you have to edit the background color of the body in style.css of your theme.
    background: #fff !important;
