Help With CSS Please

  • Hello
    I was just wondering if someone could help me please. Ive just purchased the CSS editor & ive changed my blog layout. The only problem im having is i cant change the colour of the grey margins that run down the sides on my blog. Ive looked on this forum but cant seem to find anything about it.
    You can see what i mean on my blog – Essence Of Creativity
    Thank you very much

  • Hi,

    You’ve got an inline style for the body of your template. Inline style overwrite external css stylesheet try to remove this:
    <body style="background-image: url(http://s2.wordpress.com/wp-content/themes/pub/contempt/images/blue_flower/bg.jpg); background-attachment:fixed; background-repeat: repeat-y; background-position: top center;">

    only write:

    See your source page.Hope this help.

    Hello thnak you for getting back to me. I just checked my code & i dont have <body style> in it. I just have this:-

    body {
    font-family:’Lucida Grande’, Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;

    Thats the only body bit ive got. If it helps the template ive used is called Contempt

    You need to be here:


    These forums are for people who host WP themselves.

    You didn’t read all my replie 😉

    You’re right for the body css in your stylesheet, but if you displays source of your page (use Firefox with webdevelopper plug for good check about css and more) or if ou use bad browser like IE choose in menu:

    Affichage >> Source (sorry I’m french maybe for you is Displays >> Source) and you can see all the html code of your page. See the body balise: you’ve got an inline style like I wrote above.

    And if you’re not sure try this in your browser:

    It’s the background image you have for your body style.

    But you’re in hosted wordpress I don’t know how this work to manage your php files and css. It’s not a problem with your external stylesheet but with our php file. See your header.php if you can and the body balise in it.

    Ok thank you will try this
    I dont host my wp myself. Its just one on the site if you know what i mean lol
    I took out the bit like you said but nothing happened.
    Will search the other link now
    Thank you
