How to change my theme's background color (4 posts)

    Hello,
    I'm trying to change the background color for my theme. I've searched in the style.css to figure out where to change it but I can't find it. I wanted to change it from the yellow-orange to something else. You can see it The Sports Pulse

    Also if I wanted to widen my column so where I post has a bit more space how would I do that?

    Look in your header template ?
    <body style="background-color: #E9A735">

    Try changing the <body style="background-color: #E9A735">
    to whatever color you want in your...I think... header template.

    For a wider "left part", change the following blocks

    #main {
    padding-left: 7px;
    padding-right: 10px;
    width:450px;
    border-right: 1px dotted #ccc;
    float:left;
    }
    #main2 {
    padding-left: 7px;
    margin: 0 auto;
    width:600px;
    }
    #sidebar {
    margin-top: .5em;
    width:180px;
    float:right;
    }

    What you really want to change is the width... don't forget that your main/main2 + sidebar should be equal or lesser than your #wrapper (which is at the top of your stylesheet).

    I hope this helps.

    Cheers,
    iso

    Thanks you so much for your help. I didn't know to look for the background color in the header template.
