    are you able to edit the stylesheet css with the free version. I was trying to change some stuff yet, when i reloaded the page i wasnt getting a change. Is it possibly my cache?

    Use a plugin that provides Custom CSS functionality to hold your CSS modifications.

    You shouldn't edit the theme's files because you'll lose those modifications when the theme updates.

    in this style sheet

    The idea of the Custom CSS Manager plugin is to create new styles, rather than modify old styles in the theme's stylesheet.

    The light grey background that appears on the home page of the slider?
    Sorry, can't see what you mean. I can see a grey border around it though.

    i understand the custom manager, so i can save templates so after updating the theme i can keep the look right? Yes i want to change the gray border that surrounds the white background of the page.

    Yes so your changes don't erase when the theme updates.

    May you open your webpage in Google Chrome?

    Yes.

    In Google chrome;
    - Right click on that grey border.
    - Select 'Inspect element'.
    - A new toolbar appears.
    - Look at the right side of the toolbar.
    - Scroll down until you find a border style.

    i did what you said but im not seeing what i need to change. Inspecting th whole element wich includes the side gray bars i see,

    <body class="home blog" id="top" data-twttr-rendered="true">

    If i inspect the next element it selects the inner background ignoring the outer sidebars.
