Layered Container-- help? Advice? (3 posts)

    I installed a theme, was humming along and am now stumped.

    My website is here: breaktempo.com

    All I want to do is find a way to shade the area behind the content on both the home page and individual post page to make them stand out more from the background. Just a gray shade (or gradient) to that whole container and I'm set...but have spent hours trying to resolve this myself. Could use some help...

    See the gray bar across the top of the home page? I want to shade the container that runs that width and all the way to the bottom of the comments...

    Disclaimer: could be lack of coding knowledge, because I don't have much. Grateful for any ideas...

    Not totally sure what you want, but perhaps adding the background-color to this CSS -- line 778 of style.css:

    #content-container {
        background-color: #3E3E3E;
        height: auto;
        min-height: 200px;
        padding: 40px 0;
        width: 960px;
    }

    But do be aware that unless you use a Child theme or custom CSS, any changes will be overwritten when you update the theme.

    Also that commercial themes are not generally supported here so you may need to contact the vendor for more complicated help.

    Thanks for the quick reply! Didn't realize that about commercial themes, appreciate the info anyway.
