    Hello, does anyone have any idea how to achieve this effect? http://jenniferegan.com If you click on a (category) at the top, the whole background color changes for each one. Im assuming these are all categories as they have sub pages and posts??

    Any help will be
    Much appreciated!

    Thank you!

  2. it seems, that this theme uses the page name (or page ancestor name, resp.) as a css class in the #main div; to style the background colors accordingly. all seems to be organized as pages, and child pages, etc.

    That site is using custom page templates for each of those listings along with what looks like custom CSS classes on the enclosing div to apply the background color. You could probably achieve the same effect using using individual category templates or some category conditionals to apply custom classes in a master category template.

    I cant seem to get this to work, does anyone have actual examples of code and where I should put it?? :) Just learning!

  6. it might be easier if you could explain in more detail what you have tried so far;
    maybe paste the code of your index.php(?) - or the file you were working on - into a http://wordpress.pastebin.com/ and post the link to it here.
    or post a link to your site?
