[resolved] Background (5 posts)

    Site is hosted on Bluehost
    I haven't been able to get the background color to change. I've tried it in 2 different locations. I've also tried to add a background image in the two locations and it's not showing up. I did notice a couple of times when I went to load the site, it flashed the background image and then brought up the site with the standard white background.

    The 2 places, I tried changing the background were:
    dashboard side bar under Appearance -> background
    The other spot was under Appearance -> customize and then in the left hand side, I went to Colors and selected a background color.
    When those didn't work, I tried putting in background images in the same locations.

    What am I missing/doing wrong?

    Thank you
    -Sherry

    Do you have a child theme for your site?
    If you do not, then please create a child theme first!
    Then in your css file put the following codes to have the background color of your choice for each section!

    #header {
    background-color: #a7e2e5;
    }

    #nav {
    background-color: #a7e2e5;
    }

    #main {
    background-color: #a7e2e5;
    }

    #footer {
    background-color: #a7e2e5;
    }

    If you like to have the background image to appear instead of the color, then replace above lines
    background-color: inherit;

    with background-color: inherit;

    that should do the trick!

    Hope that helps!

    I created the child theme and I'm learning a bunch about how that works and I setup the background colors like you described. It worked. :)
    Thank you.
