[Resolved] Changing Background Color

  • Can someone please tell me how to change the silver/grey background color surrounding the white area where I write my posts on my http://www.vlog.tv site to the same burgandy color of the “VLOG.TV” title on top. I just can’t seem to do it.

    Thanks,

    Lou

    I’m not too sure which area you’re referring to, but:

    The area around your actual text entry (WITHOUT the date, title, or “Posted in ____”) is called .entry So in your stylesheet, you’d add .entry { background-color: #7f0000; }

    The area around your entry, date, title, and “Posted in ____” is called .post So you’d add .post { background-color: #7f0000; }

    And the area around ALL your posts is called #content, so you’d add #content { background-color: #7f0000; }

    Also, your website is completely broken in Firefox.

    I would like to change my outside border area surrounding the white area (content area) on my site, sililar to the one on the site http://www.pearsonified.com

    He has a dark grey border area surrounding his entire white page (content area) on his site.

    Thanks,

    Lou

    Try #page { background-color: #7f0000; }

    Completely off topic, you should try and validate your site. You currently have 136 errors, as per W3C.org

    Because your site is totally screwed in FireFox – no background image, no sidebar and your “video box” is eating your post content.

    (everytime I try and take a “snapshot” using my webpage snapshot software, the video box disappears. Strange.)

    In IE7 (surprise, surprise) it renders nicely.

    Browsershots.org is great for this:

    http://browsershots.org/website/http://www.vlog.tv/

    It can take screenshots of any webpage from multiple browsers and upload them for you to see. Very useful. I’ve submitted your site for a whole bunch of browsers, and it’s set to expire in an hour. You can change all of this, of course.

    Sorry guys, but I’m an amateur at this. So my question is: If I go to “Select browsers and configuration” at Browsershots.org and click on “submit jobs” will that configure my site so that it will appear as it should in Firefox, and other browsers, or will it just show me what my site looks like in those browsers? The latter, I think.

    @theiconoclast31

    Yeah, the latter. It just takes screenshots; you still need to code it. But it’ll give you a good starting point, and you can figure out what changes to make using the screenshots (but to be honest, you should probably D/L Firefox at some point.)

    Thanks for the help. I really appreciate it.
