Support » Themes and Templates » Edit CSS Or Use Page Template – trbl with formatting

  • I’ve created a custom page template based on an html template, but not getting the results I’m looking for. The site is live at
    The background image is what I’m after, but I don’t have the editing options I should have. For example, the image align functions don’t work, as well as some text formatting functions. I think I’ve prevented the CSS from being called in, but for whatever reason, the page is a mess.

    My alternate strategy is to adjust the theme itself. I’m taking my first stab on a local installation at using CSS to modify the theme (TwentyTen). I can call in the header and footer images, but can’t get the repeating background for the content to come through. See screen cap at The content area is wider than my background image.

    Im my CSS I have both:

    #wrapper {
    background: #fff url(‘background.jpg’);
    background-position: center;
    background-repeat: repeat-y


    #content {
    margin-bottom: 36px;

    So 2 questions:
    1. Which of my so far unsuccessful attempts is the right approach?
    2. Where am I going wrong?

  • I can’t see a div with the ID content in your code. What I see is a div with a class content.
    so your code should be

    .content {
    margin-bottom: 36px;

    @veganist- yes, as in my original description. I tried that on my local installation but I’m not getting the result. See the link to the image for a visual.
