  • Here’s one way:

    1. In the admin page, choose Presentation > Theme Editor.
    2. Look through your style.css file for “#sidebar” and find color information inside those curly brackets.
    3. Change at will, then save.

    Don’t know your CSS? Start learning.

    There is no color information. I tried adding
    But it didn’t work, is there something I am missing

    Color will change the text color not background color it should be this here to change background color.
    background-color: #1E90FF;

    This is what it looks like, it still isn’t changing anything:

    #sidebar {
    float: left;
    background-color: #1E90FF;
    width: 200px;


    That should have changed it. Do you have a link to the actual site to see what is happening.




    your theme doesn’t have any divs that are using that id.

    In other words, look at your source, search for sidebar, specifically, look for <div id="sidebar"> –its not there 🙂

    that’s why that’s not doing anything.

    Some of your sidebar stuff is inside a textwidgets <div>, some is still inside the content div>. You also need to address your validation errors.
