    Hi, I've recently installed your theme and I love it!

    I am however trying and failing to change the background for other types of posts rather than just photo posts. Is this possible , and i so how?

    Would be great for some help with this, thanks!

  2. Hi there, you could change the background colour of other posts manually, using CSS.

    Are you comfortable with CSS?

    Do you have a Custom CSS editor or child theme set up already?

    Can you provide a link to your site?

    Did you want each post type to have a specific background colour (i.e. green for Links, purple for Quotes, etc.) or did you want a different colour for individual posts?

    Hi,

    I am so sorry I had no idea that you had replied - I just thought I'd try again and have seen this - I don't knowhow I missed it.

    I am no comfortable with CSS, I wish I was.

    Did you want each post type to have a specific background colour (i.e. green for Links, purple for Quotes, etc.) or did you want a different colour for individual posts?

    Both really, if that is possible?!

    My site is - AlexInWonderland.co.uk - AlexInWonderland.co.uk

    I am also trying to add a 'related content' widget / plugin into the layout so it runs down the sides within my posts - is this possible, rather than just at the end of posts?!

    Thank you for your help and sorry for the late reply.

    No worries! FYI, you can click the Subscribe to Topic link in the right column to get an email when a reply comes in.

    With some CSS knowledge you can do either.

    Each post has a unique ID number, which you can see when you're editing a post in the browser's address bar or in the browser's source.

    For example, the first post on your homepage ("ACB for Landgate Create : : Exhibition | Turnpike Gallery") has the post ID 3591, and the unique CSS ID post-3591, which you can see if you view the page source:

    <article id="post-3591" [code truncated]

    What this means is that you can assign a particular background colour to it with CSS. For example, you could try this to add a light blue background colour:

    #post-3591 {
     background-color: #e3f4f9;
    }

    To add the same color instead behind all standard-format posts, you could try this:

    article.format-standard {
     background-color: #e3f4f9;
    }

    You can choose any colour you like, of course: http://0to255.com/

    Since you already have Jetpack installed, a simple way to add custom CSS like this is to activate the Custom CSS module. This way, your CSS won't be overwritten when you update the theme.

    I am also trying to add a 'related content' widget / plugin into the layout so it runs down the sides within my posts - is this possible, rather than just at the end of posts?!

    That would be something you'd need to ask the plugin developer. I can't think of where I've seen that before.
