    The slider has two different tones of gray and the main body where my articles lay is gray too. I am interested in changing the top gray on the slider and the main body to white. How can I do this on my site?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Havingfun,

    All the site backgrounds are made up of images so you would have to change the images to apply the changes if you want to keep the same effect. For example your slider background is :

    background: url("images/slider-bg.png") no-repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;

    so slider-bg.png is the background image making both the shades of grey. This should set you on the right tracks to changing the background.

    J...Would I be able to just simply delete slider-bg.png within the ( ) to remove the gray and exchange it with a white background? It's not this simple is it? If not, how do I find out the "image" name to replace slider-bg.png from gray to white?

    Try using Firefox with the Firebug add-on for this kind of CSS work.

    The banner is made up of one main bg, but just changing that wont get your desired effect ie the search bar would need a new image as it disappears into the white. Then your content area has a top lid image to create rounded edge, then a middle image then a bottom image.

    I would certainly recommend what Esmi said download Firebug and have a play to see how every thing is made up on the site. You can also alter the code in firebug to test to see how things will look.
