[resolved] Where is background color located? (8 posts)

    On this page: http://www.lacdcs.org/wordpress/
    I found the place to change the "background" color once, from gray to yellow, but now that I want to do it again on another site's blog, I can't find where to do it. The theme is based on WordPress Default 1.5.

    If you can be specific to which background you are trying to change, and provide a link to the blog that you can't change (unless they are both using the same theme), someone will be able to look at the style sheet and point out what declaration needs changing.

    Look in style.css (or maybe yours is stylesheet.css) and look for something similar to:
    body {

    font-size: 62.5%; /* Resets 1em to 10px */

    font-family: 'Lucida Grande', Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;

    background-color: #d5d6d7;

    color: #333;

    text-align: center;

    }

    Oops good point miklb - I just assumed they meant the main background, but they could mean content or comments, etc.

    If it's the main background, try what I posted.

    It is style.css and I've been trying to change it. Here's what I have:
    body {
    font-size: 62.5%; /* Resets 1em to 10px */
    font-family: 'Lucida Grande', Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;
    background-color: #653C98;
    color: #333;
    text-align: center;
    }

    #653C98 is a purple color but it still won't show anything but the gray color.

    I used pretty much the same theme as the http://www.lacdcs.org/wordpress/ site mentioned, and on that one I got the gray to be yellow. I do remember that I had a major problem finding the right place to change the color, but unfortunately didn't write down where it got changed.

    Nevermind, I finally figured it out. I have to change the kubrickbgcolor.jpg to the color I want.

    *EDITED* LoL! Ya figured it out while I was typing this one..hehe. That's cool though, atleast ya found out what needed edited/changed though. =)

    That's an image based theme... you'll have to edit or change the color of the BG image itself.. You can do this if you have GIMP or Photoshop or something.

    The image here.

    You can also simply delete the section in the header of kubrick and not use the background images.
