I'm working on my site locally and have created a child theme from the Twenty Eleven theme. I'm trying to change the side bar color and I've found that if I change the .widget-area class it works great.
The theme is responsive so I've been testing my site by reducing my browser window. At the point when the layout adjusts itself and the sidebar drops to the bottom of the page the background color ends up behind the Article tag - i.e. the post. I want there to be no background color behind the posts.
I appreciate your help.
