    Hello Diane,

    I think your problem might be in your css file, specifically this part ;

    img {
    background-color: #C0C0C0 !important;
    border: 1px solid #000000;

    You have forgotten to add the } so the code isn't working. you need to close the code like so:

    img {
    background-color: #C0C0C0 !important;
    border: 1px solid #000000;
    }

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Diane,

    I thought I'd run a test to make sure I was 100% correct

    Unfortunately the problem was actually in your html source code, Ive now tested it to make sure. So this part of your source code ;

    <style type="text/css">
    #site-title a,
    #site-description {
    color: #323c25 !important;
    }
    </style>
    <style type="text/css" id="custom-background-css">
    body.custom-background { background-color: #110e0e; }
    </style>

    which is from line 43-51.

    You need to change the hex color code which is shown in bold above.

    Hi,

    This code was most likely implemented whilst editing via your windows live writer, so any changes would need to be made their I believe.

    Btw this was my 11 year old sons solution, but don't let that put you off he is learning html at the moment and would like to help others which in turn will help his knowledge grow :)
