  • Hello,
    I’m trying to change the background color for my theme. I’ve searched in the style.css to figure out where to change it but I can’t find it. I wanted to change it from the yellow-orange to something else. You can see it The Sports Pulse

    Also if I wanted to widen my column so where I post has a bit more space how would I do that?

    Look in your header template ?
    <body style="background-color: #E9A735">

    Try changing the <body style="background-color: #E9A735">
    to whatever color you want in your…I think… header template.

    For a wider “left part”, change the following blocks

    #main {
    padding-left: 7px;
    padding-right: 10px;
    border-right: 1px dotted #ccc;
    #main2 {
    padding-left: 7px;
    margin: 0 auto;
    #sidebar {
    margin-top: .5em;

    What you really want to change is the width… don’t forget that your main/main2 + sidebar should be equal or lesser than your #wrapper (which is at the top of your stylesheet).

    I hope this helps.


    Thanks you so much for your help. I didn’t know to look for the background color in the header template.
