Side columns show black instead of white (7 posts)

    Hi, I'm using the Acid Green Pro theme. Since I use Firefox it looks great with an all white background. Then I looked at it IE6 & IE7. The side columns show up black and makes the site really ugly. I added background-color: #FFFFFF to the body selector, but that didn't make any difference. Can anyone help? CSS really confuses me.

    The site is http://bradford-online.com

    Thanks-in-advance.

    Try changing this line in your CSS [in body]

    background:url(images/bgbg.png) repeat;

    to this

    background: #ffffff url(images/bgbg.png) repeat;

    There is no such rule as repeat AFAIK.

    So...

    Try changing this line in your CSS [in body]

    background:url(images/bgbg.png) repeat;

    to this

    background: #ffffff url(images/bgbg.png);

    Thanks for the quick replies. I tried the change to the body selector with no effect. However, I found another selector, #grandwrapper, with background set to #000000. I changed it to #FFFFFF and I think that worked. If anyone still sees the black sidebars, please let me know. Thanks for the help!

    Ahh, the 'ol grandwrapper. My apologies for missing it. It is now appearing correctly in IE7.

    It is common to put the url in single quote marks. Can be iffy in some browsers otherwise.
