Changing Background Colors (6 posts)

    I recently downloaded this theme and I love it. I was just wondering if it's possible to change the background color, either of the whole background or pieces (ie: the sidebars). I have a very limited knowledge of code, so the few things I've tried haven't worked. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    You can change the colors in the stylesheet.

    In version 2.21 it would be rather hard to change colors due to the layout technique being used. But I will release a new version in just a few days. Changing colors will be significantly easier in that version.

    I have spent some time with the style sheet and have been able to change the background color on almost all div's except the two sidebars. I would be anxiously awaiting your new version you are speaking of where it will be "significantly easier" to change the colors, but I have tweaked the .css and php code so much, I think it's no going back. A new version would overwrite too much of my work.

    Could you be so kind as to let me know just how to change both of these. I was able to change the color in the widgets in the sidebar 1, but not underneath... the part that extends down where future widgets would be placed. And have had no luck so far changing the color in sidebar 2.

    Thanks you. :)

    Change the color values in this, in style.php:


    #outer-column-container {
    border-left: solid <?php echo $ata_leftcolumn_width; ?>em #fff;
    border-right: solid <?php echo $ata_rightcolumn_width; ?>em #fff;
    }
