[Resolved] Background Colour gone wrong

  • So, Thanks to a friend who is no longer a friend, my site is suffering badly, mainly because, she charged me a fortune to build it…but didnt really know how to herself!!
    Anyway, I have just updated wordpress and low and behold, my Background colour will not work…in the editor it is showing it, but it doesnt show it actually on the site. I have looked in Header.php and cannot find the body bit…in truth it looks an absolute MESS…I also looked at the custom CSS and changed the background to the colour but alas…NOTHING…in truth, I am honestly wondering what I bothered with WordPress for because, I cannot find anything in any of the files….everything is gobbledygoup and I think it was easier with a ready built one form one of the hosters..

    If anyone can help me I would be very grateful..oh and I strongly suggest that no one usues the web designer I did!

    In your custom CSS, remove this;

    .custom-background

    So you end up with this;

    body {
     background-color: #062d06;
     background-image: url('http://360mrc.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/360Bgnd.png');
     background-repeat: repeat;
     background-position: top center; background-attachment: scroll;
    }

    I cannot find .custom-background

    how do I search for it?

    and I cant even find the other stuff you have typed

    really confused and dont know anything about WP

    Download the Jetpack plugin and use its Custom CSS functionality to hold your CSS modifications from now. Then enter within the Custom CSS section of the dashboard;

    body {
     background-color: #062d06;
     background-image: url('http://360mrc.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/360Bgnd.png');
     background-repeat: repeat;
     background-position: top center;
     background-attachment: scroll;
    }

    This is what is in the Unite: Skin-360.css

    /*** Skin Styles ***/

    body { color: #AAA; } /* default font color */
    /*#Wrapper, body { background color:#062d06 url(“images/skins/skin-360/bodyBgnd.png”) repeat-x 0 0; } */ /* background color/graphic */
    #PageWrapper {padding: 10px 0px 0px 0px;}

    You can put the CSS in there if you want, but I’m not sure how your theme works as it’s custom-built. Your styles may be overridden if you use that stylesheet.

    i am also geeting same problem at ugcnetanswerkeys

    piyushgoyal1 – please stop posting in other people’s threads – start your own if you need help.

    Sorry but I still cant do this

    Can anyone who really knows WP look at my site and tell me how to get it back.

    There is a WHOLE HOST of problems with this site and the person who built it in truth, HASNT GOT A CLUE!!…but that is another issue.

    I am bored with trying to do this, surely there is a simpler thing than the amount of code that is being used for this site?

    Is there such a thing as a WordPress hospital or something whereby a copy of my database can be given to someone who knows what they are doing and they fix all the bugs (like galleries that dont work, shopping trolley and products that dont update….I work in Finance and I have never seen anything like this, who owns WP?…where can I get real help?

    Sorry if I seem upset but I pauid a lot of money foor the development of this site and although it looked good from a far, it is actually far from good!

    It’s understandable that you are upset and frustrated, but if the developer did a poor job, you should be talking to him/her. If you want help fixing it, we can help you, but we cannot do it for you. And for extensive work on a custom theme, that may be beyond the scope of these forums. If there are additional, major problems, you may need to consider hiring someone else to fix them:

    And I should also add – no one “owns” WordPress — it’s an entirely volunteer open-source project — no one here gets paid anything.

    I’ll gladly pay someone….but thats what I did last time…and so thats why I am a bit frustrated and sceptic for which I apologise. There is a thing on the admin panel of my WP that says “repair Database” but it just shows all the files and then a “Yes/No” button next to it.

    There is also an “Optimise Database” which has the same yes no next to each table, there are 92 seperate files/tables within the database, is that big?
