[resolved] Content background (7 posts)

    I chose Easel by chance and decided to stick with it as it is a bit different looking, it grew on me. :)
    In IE the content background is one color, a very light grey rather than Chrome and FF which render it as a grey gradient. I would like to have it one firm color rather than the shading.
    I cannot seem to find the WHERE of the CSS for that. Wondering if you could help, thanks, RJ

    *or* alternatively you can go to the easel options and turn off the default styling and create your own look, I also have a bunch of child themes at my forum.frumph.net ;forums

    Thanx! I take it editing style-default.css means losing it on an upgrade. How do people deal with that?
    I think I have the area but not sure what to do with it.
    I want to use solid #E6E6E6

    #content-wrapper {
    	background: #111 url('images/background-lines.png') repeat;

    thanx again Frumph!

    Have you ever given any thought to include the ability to make the first post a FULL ARTICLE followed by excerpts?

    They use a child theme, or use an override plugin like Theme Companion

    and huh?

    I have a child theme.
    So for style-default.css I do the same as for style? I have a style-default.css file in my child folder with changes only?

    And I stll cannot get the background to change.
    I tried the above with

    #content-wrapper {
    	background: #e6e6e6;

    Nothing happened.

    If you have a child theme, add that to the child themes style.css

    #content-wrapper {
    	background: #e6e6e6 !important;

    If in doubt, add an !important to the line ;/

    hey thanks!
    Let me explain what I meant about first full post earlier.
    I used HEADWAY theme for awhile and it was great and had lots of options but it ended dragging the down the CPU.

    I have been unable to find any other theme that offers the FULL POST IN EXCERPTS option. I would think it would be very popular for to do it oneself right now it takes far too much PHP for non PHPers like me.

    When using EXCERPTS on the index page, it would be really nice if one could have a box somewhere that like HEADWAY offered.
    PRESENT NEWEST POSTS IN FULL MODE > How many 1, 2, 3, 4...

    Not only does it give a website with many new posts a central article to look at, it allows for a 336 Adsense in it on the first screen. Which is an !important thing! :)

    I just thought if a theme maker offered that up top of their description they could get more business? Though maybe I am alone in this. :(

    But thanx for the help no matter!
