[resolved] Changing background color behind text area (3 posts)

    Hello all,

    First off, I am using the theme Gray White Black and am manipulating it with a child theme. The theme is very lightly coded and does not offer the option to upload a background image and I wanted one.

    So I uploaded my background image using the code

    body {
      background: url("http://www.eekhoornchaos.be/bestanden/musback/Wallpapers/Musback_Ice_cubes_minimal_wallpaper_1920x1200.jpg")  repeat fixed;
    }

    It looks great but I want the columns that all my posts and writings are in to have a white background. This will make it easier to read.

    My question is: how do you go about doing this? More specifically, what is the code that will allow me to make the area behind the writing white or any other color for the matter.

    Thanks a lot. and you can check out the site at ilovelightshows.com

    Add a background-color: white (or whatever you want) using the classes:

    .main

    .sidebar
