  • Hello,

    I am using Twenty Eleven 1.3 theme and my page looks something like this:
    On the top there is the “NAME” of my page on a white background
    Under the “NAME” there is a “HEADER IMAGE”
    Under the “HEADER IMAGE” I have two things:
    On my left side there is “PAGE CONTENT” on a white background
    On the right side I have a “SIDE BAR” with my links on a white

    Now what I am trying to do is to set a different background color to my “NAME”, “PAGE CONTENT” and “SIDE BAR”.

    The problem is I don’t know where to do this.

    Please help

    Thank you

  • Do not edit the Twenty Eleven theme. It is the default WordPress theme and having access to an unedited version of the theme is vital when dealing with a range of site issues. First create a child theme for your changes.


    But I have already made some changes. I do have the original files. So if you could tell me where in the code I have to make changes to change the background I would appreciate it.

    Thank you

    when the child theme is in place, post a link to your site, and someone might be able to help you.

    Thank you for all the help.
    I kind of figured out how to change the background color and also how to change the image. Now I have a different question. I have 7 different browsers (Crome, IE9, Maxthon, Opera, Safari, Firefox and SeaMonkey). Now 5 of them displays everything correctly, but 2 of them (IE9, Opera) don’t display the changes.

    Can somebody tell me what the problem might be.

    Thank you

    without seeing the site live, and being able to make the browser comparison, it is impossible to comment on your question –

    maybe apart from: have you cleared the browswer cache in all of the browsers?
