Lightword - changing site background (colour or image) (5 posts)

    If you have a Lightword blog and have changed its site background to a different colour or image than its orignal classic black, I'm wondering how you modified it?

    I have not yet tweaked with the stylesheet (don't want to risk mucking up everything), but will do so, if needs be, after hearing people's experiences.

    Thanks in advance!

    I changed the colour of my background by going to Appearance > Editor in the wordpress admin bit, then clicking on Stylesheet (style.css) from the list on the right.
    In that file, find the "/* BASIC */" heading, and it's 3 lines down in there:


    And just change that hex code. I haven't tried it, but you might also be able to change the whole 'background-color' bit to an image, as you asked. I may get back to you on that one.
    Check out my blog to see Lightword in a different colour :)

    Thanks Kaburorne for the very clear explanation! I'll try this out.

    If you do try out the background image thing, let me know.

    Has anyone managed to add a tiled background image to this theme?

    I got it to work, here's the code I used:

    body{background:#2C2C29 url(images/file.jpg) repeat top left;font-family:Tahoma;font-size:11px;color:#2C2C29;}
