Need help editing CSS in WP for Gallery (7 posts)

    I've successfully integrated Gallery2 into my WordPress blog, but am having trouble making the gallery's background look right. I need the gallery's background to be white, but right now it's transparent to WP's background image. I assume I need to change/add the table background color in a CSS file somewhere, but which one? I've tried editing both the CSS file for Gallery's theme and my WP's CSS theme sheet, but nothing's worked so far. Anyone have any input on this?

    Here's a screenshot of my gallery in WP to see what I mean:

    I'm using Falling Dreams WP template from http://teo.esuper.ro/category/download/

    Thanks for your time guys! I appreciate it.

    In themes/falling_dreams/style.css

    change body, td {

    to body {

    Thanks for the help Sam_a. It didn't really work, though. Now the background is just grey, as you can see now. I tried changing the background color in the same BODY heading, but that didn't work either. Suggestions?

    Thanks again for helping with this!

    remove the <table> that's encapsulating your embedded g2 code. don't use tables for layouts if you don't need to, instead adjust the width of wp-gallery2.php setting to get the alignment correctly.

    login to WordPress > Options > Gallery 2 > Style Options

    find something like this:

    <style type="text/css">.g2_column {margin: 0px 1px 0px 12px;width: 736px}</style><div id="content" class="g2_column">

    reduce 736px to a smaller setting and reload wp-gallery2.php on a different browser window to view the changes.

    for future reference, also try http://wpg2.ozgreg.com/forums/ and http://gallery.menalto.com/node/27880 for further assistance.
