    Hi

    I like the lay out of the Customizr theme
    By nikeo Version 3.0.13

    Is there a way I can change the background to a turquoise colour?
    Just want it to stand out.
    I am a beginner as you probably have gathered :)

    This is my Website so far

    @Mr.solution, I think

    body {
    background-color: #53f6fc;
    }

    would have been enough. No need to specify background scroll, repeat or offsets in order to change color. The only thing that needs to be addressed so this looks better is the white text-shadow of the logo. I guess it needs:

    .brand h1 {
    text-shadow: 0px 2px 4px rgba(0,0,0,.21);
    }

    added to the CSS above.

    Does someone please have the HEX code of the default background colour?

    @chappie:
    - You can find that stuff out by using a browser developer tool to find in the CSS the hexadecimal code
    - Get an 'eye dropper' addon tool for your browser ~ exampled
    - Take a screenshot and use Paint's eye dropper tool

    In future you can also create your own thread here: http://wordpress.org/support/theme/customizr#postform - to discuss your own issues

    Hi, I changed the background color before with css... no problem.

    body.home {
    /* Front Page Background    */
      background: #514137 !important;}

    But now my client would like to use darker brown color #282224
    I did change all #514137 to #282224 in my custom css but somehow background didn't changed.
    What it could be?
    here is my website
    http://dreamitstudio.designatrouge.com

    Is there another css for the green skin I'm using? I can't find it.
    Please help.
    Thank you.

    easy-responsive-tabs.css contains a body {} but that's not the problem.

    Do you still have some code left in your Custom CSS panel, as your new code in style.css is being superseded by the old code.

    I think Nic made some structure changes and green.css is now in
    customizr/inc/assets/css/green.css. There's now also a minified version (for performance)green.min.css. But Czr will be using those, the only thing you need do is select the Use minified checkbox in Customize>Skin.

    ps Start a new thread next time as hijacking old Posts is against Forum Rules

    Bingo! I had some code in Custom CSS, totally forgot about it.
    Sorry for "hijacking old Posts" but I thought its better to search for similar post than start the new one.

    Thank you soooo much for your help @rdellconsulting!
