[resolved] How to change post data background color (3 posts)

    I am trying to change to background color of the post data for my posts on my wordpress blog (austinkretzer.com). It is white right now, and I have tried everything I could think of to change it to a different color, like #888888 or something.

    Does anyone have any idea how to do so? I have tried changing it in many different areas, though I am having trouble enough just finding what exactly is the "source" that makes the white bar so I can put the code into it to change the background color.

    I am using the Atahualpa theme

    Any help at all would be appreciated, thanks so much!

    I could simply tell you what to change, but I want you to learn something .. :)

    Look at the source of your page. When you locate this bit of text:

    whats is it wrapped in? whats around it? Thats what you need to look for in the style.css

    Ah! Thank you so much, I went over that exact postmetadata, and changed the "background:", but then I realized it needed to be "background-color:" instead.

    Feel like an idiot for not realizing that! Thanks again for the help.
