    Hi! I have tried hard to figure this out by myself but i can´t but i am sure this is an easy problem to solve.

    Checkout http://www.astoff.se and you will se a white background where the text and stuff is, i am trying to make it transparent or at least find where it is in the code so i can change it to an image or change color. Let me know if you want to see my style.css code or some other code.

    Thanks!

    Your post content area is currently black - not white. Do you still have a problem finding the correct place to make changes?

    Oh sorry if i was explaining wrong, i meant(i think) the page, the white background behind the one you are talking about. The other places, like the one you meant is no problem, just the white area.

    You are using a non-transparent repeating white image with the text 'astoff' as background for #page. If you want that to be transparent, use an image with a transparent background color instead of white.

    that is the header and is set to no-repeat. i tested now to take it away in the code and replace with black color and it´s just black on the header and the white background is still there so it is something else but really thanks for giving me feedback on what i should try.

    what you may refer to is the image called like background_ltr or something that is found if you rightclick on the website and click "show source"(or something like that) but when i look(i have looked everywhere) for that piece of code, i can´t find it! i will try to replace that image and see if that´s the issue but since i can´t find the code i can´t change name to the file and therefore it has to be jpeg wich does not support transparency, wich is making that another problem.

    thanks! the search continues...

    yes, i can change the image now but can´t find the code.

    i click show source in the website and it shows this piece of code some lines from the top:

    <style type="text/css" media="screen">

    #page { background: url("http://www.astoff.se/wp-content/themes/default/images/kubrickbg-ltr.jpg") repeat-y top; border: none; }

    </style>

    the "kubrickbg-ltr.jpg" image i do find ofcourse and can change it to a color but since i can´t find the code i can´t change the name or the repeat option so i can´t make a transparent GIF image to replace it. Anyone can help me? I have seriously checked every .php or .css file that the theme is containing!

    It's in header.php:

    <?php
    // Checks to see whether it needs a sidebar or not
    if ( empty($withcomments) && !is_single() ) {
    ?>
    	#page { background: url("<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/images/kubrickbg-<?php bloginfo('text_direction'); ?>.jpg") repeat-y top; border: none; }
    <?php } else { // No sidebar ?>
    	#page { background: url("<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/images/kubrickbgwide.jpg") repeat-y top; border: none; }
    <?php } ?>
