Changing Background Color is Post for Professionally Done (5 posts)

    I am using the Professionally done style which uses a gray #444 background. I have no problem with the color of the background in the side bars and outer container, but I would like the actual posts to be presented on a white background with black or very dark print. I have found the CSS font style and changed it on line 14 of styles.css to be black, but I can't find the background code to change to white. There are several hundred lines of CSS properties in this file. Can anyone assist?

    Thanks,

    Millard

    sure, if you provide a link to where we can see the theme being used, and see the area you want changed.

    Thanks. The link is http://www.photog-blog.net.

    I want the section (background) that holds the individual posts to be white, then I will change the text to a dark color.

    find .content in your css.

    .content {
    	padding-top: 15px;
    	padding-right: 15px;
    	padding-left: 15px;
    	padding-bottom: 1px;
            background-color:white; /* or use whatever color you wish */
            color:000; /* your font color, here it is black */
            font-weight:600; /* weights range from 100-900, 900 being boldest */
    }

    noted where the changes made, so you can play. I used 'white' as a guide. it equals #fff, or #ffffff. I rec using a hex when choosing colors other than white or black.. You can find a color hex chart many places, just google for it..

    you may want to look at this too:

    .content h2 {
    	letter-spacing: -1px;
    	font-size: 18px;
    	color: #fff3b3;
    }

    change the color attribute to something that stands out more...

    happy coding!
