Adding a Border to the YOKO theme and body bg color (3 posts)

    I've seen the border topic posted a lot, but the solutions posted aren't working for me. Lame.


    The site is set up as a child theme and I'm trying to add a thin green border around the page - where the body/text/white background meets the grey bg with world stencils. Nothing seems to be working and it's getting annoying.

    The other issue is changing the white of the text area to a different color. Can't figure that one out either. Thanks in advance.

    I am not certain but are you looking to do something like this then? :

    #wrap {
    padding: 40px 20px;
    border: 1px solid #ddd;

    The white can be changed either in the #wrap above or:

    #page {
    background-color: #eee // whatever you want;

    Thanks, but that didn't work for me.

    The link to where the site is currently being built is here:


    I'm now using the twentyeleven theme as a child and here's what I would like to do.

    I would still like to add a green border around the white content part of the page (what's the official name of that section?!)

    Also, I would like to reduce the margins in that white sections - there seems to be WAY too much white space

    Finally, I would like to change that white to an off white or something, but #page background wasn't working for me.

    Thanks in advance.
