    I have used style.css to change the background around the page, the footer, and worked out how to change header colours successfully, but i have encountered problems in changing the page, and sidebar background colour, i thought font colour numbers would work (#f4dd98), the same way as the other bg colours, but it did not, so after searching wordpress forum, i realised it can only be changed by images; help me if it can be done the simple way, so i downloaded the kubrickbg.jpg file, used paint shop pro x to fill in the colours of page and side, but i now do not know where to place it, so the page and sidebar bg colour is changed.

    I have tried putting it header.php, and style.css, but as it still does not work, i assume i am just placing it in the wrong place, so could someone please a.s.a.p. demonstrate exactly the part to apply this.

    Thankyou, pureliving.

    I'm not sure what theme or version of WP you are using, but I went into the "Edit Themes > Header Image and Color" setting and checked the location of the image there...

    domain/install_directory/wp-content/themes/default/images/kubrickheader.jpg

    Is where the default image seems to be located for the WordPress Default theme.

    Hope that helps.
