Page template with changeable background

  • I’m trying to set up a forum, and the forum itself isn’t presenting any problems, but i can’t find out how to change the background of a page, not the site background, but the background on a specific page. I’m using Flexx layout, which i don’t think has this functionality, so what i’m looking for is a page.php file in which i can change the background color.

    I’d be really grateful if someone could point me to a theme or somewhere, where i can find a page file with this functionality.

    the flexx seems to be a commercial theme – in which case please ask the theme seller for support.

    or use Firebug http://getfirebug.com/ to investigate the page’s css – if each page has an unique body_class, you can use this in the stylesheet.

    I’m not really looking to add this functionality to the flexx theme itself, i’d like to find a page file from some other theme, which has this functionality, and then just use that in conjunction with the flexx theme.

    Try using Firefox with the Firebug add-on for this kind of CSS work.

    Hint: If you theme uses the body_class() function, try looking at the classes generated on the <body> tag.

    i’ve tried to look through all the color codes that firebug shows in the css page, but none of them changed the background color. Flexx doesn’t use the body_class i think.

    Sorry – you’re right. It doesn’t. As this is a commercial theme, you need to seek any further support from the theme’s vendors.

    but isn’t there free themes with independent page files? What i want to find is actually unrelated to flexx, i just want to find a theme where there is a page file with easy to change background code.

    Oh – that should be easy then. Just have a browse through http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/ Any theme submitted, or updated, in the last 18 months will incorporate the mandatory body_class() function.
