Removing the grey background (7 posts)

    OK, I know how to read css, but for some reason I just can't find the grey background code in the css of the default WordPress Default 1.5 by Michael Heilemann theme. I would really appreciate any help.

    The background code is at the top of the Header template. It's basically a repeating background image, i.e.

    body { background: url("<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/images/kubrickbgcolor.jpg"); }

    I removed the code you specified, but now there is a new layer of a darker gray behind it. What could be cuasing that to show up.

    Thanks for your help so far!

    Seems like I remember from a ways back when I started with WordPress that that Kubrick theme is all graphics, like jpgs. So to change the colors you have to change them in the jpgs in a graphics program like the Gimp.

    Could I use fireworks instead?

    I guess - I've never used it, but if it works similar to Photoshop Elements, or Paint Shop Pro, it should work fine.

    cerckert: Now that you've removed the background-image, the remaining grey is defined in the CSS file. Try using an eyedropper tool to find the colour and do a search on your CSS file (okay, I'm just lazy to search the theme's CSS file for the exact class/id).
