Customizr
Container around slider and featured pages (6 posts)

    I have been working on my customizr theme for a few weeks now.

    I have most everything how I want it. I have just a "rough draft" of a site up now the rest of my edits I have been working on locally.

    What I would like to do is put a container with a colored back ground around the slider and featured pages section. I have been playing around with the idea of using a gradient background but with the zoom effect on the featured pages it just looks bad.

    Any ideas?

    Not that it is needed at this point but my site is ywamhelsinki.com

    You could try an image with low opacity that breaks up the whiteness.

    I have been messing around a lot with colors. trying to find out what we like so the whiteness is just up for a temporary time.

    Here is a screen shot of what one of the color schemes I am playing with.

    Here is what I am picturing. I am not even sure if it is possible, but I would like to give it a try!

    As you say, you'd need to add a new container as those jpgs cannot be reproduced out-the-box.

    This might help if you have good php & HTML skills

    And there in lies the problem. I am not good at php!

    Thanks a lot for the help! I am sure I can figure out another design!
