How to make content area white (14 posts)

    WP 3.5.2
    Evolve 2.5.0

    I have adjusted the background to be white, and the header and footer, but the main container area (content area) where my posts display has a grey/off white background.

    In the previous version of this theme I was able to amend this to be white.

    How can I please get this to be white. Thank you

    I'm not sure if you're looking for the whole area to be white, or just the little blocks that show the posts, so here are two answers:

    1) If you want the whole container area to be white, you need to change this on your style sheet

    [moderated]

    2) If you just want the individual posts to have a white background,
    Change line 111 from:

    [moderated]

    Hope this helps!

    @LauraHartwigDesign: Will you please stop advising people to edit their themes. They should be creating child themes or using a CSS plugin.

    @writeshesaid,

    My fault, @esmi is right. If this is not a child theme you are using, you should add the last part from either section to a custom CSS plugin like one of these: http://wordpress.org/plugins/search.php?q=custom+css so that your changes will not be lost with the next update. Good luck!

    @michaellandfield, I need to know your site url before I can help you.

    Not completely sure which area you are talking about. There seems to be a background area which includes your navigation. for that, you would need to change this part of your style sheet:

    .menu-container {
      background-color:#EEEFF3;
    }

    to

    .menu-container {
      background-color:#FFFFFF;
    }

    If you want to change the actual content area, in your base.css file, you need to change
    .widget-content
    so that the background color is #ffffff.

    Even if this is a child theme, I recommend making copies of your files before you change them in case you want to go back to the old version.
    Hope this helps!

    It is the background behind the carousel slider (but not including the menu)

    Thanks, in a way it did work, but it made the entire box including the background of menu and behind logo white, I only wanted to change background of the slider and down to the footer.

    Unfortunately, the way it is set up, it is all together.
    you've got a background-image: none !important for your .menu-header which is getting rid of the background image that was originally set for the navigation. You could set up your own image there if you wanted it to be something different.

    How do I setup a blank white image? Is there a way to do it similar to The Ghosts in our Machine website?
