    my site http://www.knowingreal.com

    i can change color of header, content and side bar to white but how to make the whole portion or column to white.

    when i used firebug on that portion, it showed the name fix.after and when i added background property to white, it made all the background of site to white but i just want the column containing all the material to be white.

    how to do that, this is the only barrier for me to get started now...

    thanks in advance....fingers crossed

    I find these in your CSS

    body {
        color: #FFFFFF;


    body {
        background-color: #000000;

    Try using only

    body {
        background-color: #FFFFFF;

    Add background-color: #fff to the following div:
    <div class="content">

    sorry @krishna that is not working

    @Anevins, please can you explain where i will find that....in css

  5. you seem to have found what to edit to get a solid white central column background;
    the suggestion by @anevins was right to add the background color to the style of .content

    check your site in a few different browsers, and if your problem is sorted, please tick this topic off as 'resolved'.

    i tried and added background-color to my layout in css

    /* @ Site Layout */
    	#site { position: relative; }
    	#wrapper { padding-bottom: auto; }
    	.content { width: 960px; background-color: #fff; margin: 0px auto 0; }

    but the box is coming inside the footer, i want it to increase automatically with the content and sidebars,

  7. to keep the footer in its original color, try to remove this background-color: #fff; from the .content style, and add these new styles:

    #header .content{background:#fff;}
