Problem displaying background color with latest version

  • Hello,

    I just upgraded to the latest version of wordpress (3.3). All of sudden, the background color I had chosen for my site is no longer showing. I went to the “Background” section under “Appearances” to adjust it and save it again, but the background just remains white instead of displaying the color I have chosen. Can someone help me with this please? You can see my site here: http://www.findinghopewithin.com/

  • Is there also an option in your theme to use the theme options generated stylesheet or the default one?

    I believe it is the theme options generated stylesheet. I can click on “Editor” and it will take me to the stylesheet for my current theme.

    Is there something in the stylesheet I can change that will fix my problem? Please let me know where to go and what to change. Thanks.

    Line 15 of your css:

    #wrapper {
    background: #”color code here”;
    }

    From the sticky above. Maybe this,
    THEMES WITH ISSUES

    Background images not showing

    Open header.php and locate your <body> tag. Change this value to <body <?php body_class(”); ?>>

    Thank you Shirazdrum! It worked!

    You are welcome.

    What happens now should the OP desire to use the themes options for css?

    forgive me for not knowing, but i see the css brought up alot… where exactly is this located witin the site? I am having the same problem as the OP.thank you

    added notify email

    I had the same problem with the background colour, it’s fixed now! Thank you Shirazdrum! Top stuff! 🙂

    N2h2o, The css stylesheet is located under “Appearance” and then “Editor”, there you will be able to adjust the code.

    Swanson,

    Obviously the theme option is not working, so adding a background color there won’t change anything. Once the theme author fixes the problem and updates, then they can use that option again.

    I went to the “Background” section under “Appearances” to adjust it and save it again, but the background just remains white instead of displaying the color I have chosen.

    @alexis403, The editor in not the same as theme options (a set of options available with your theme). If you make changes to theme options and they do not ‘stick’, you have a problem with your installation and/or theme and/or plugins. While using the editor to modify a theme file may fix a minor CSS issues, that does not resolve the (yes, obvious) problem of theme options not working properly.

    @shirazdrum,

    Then we agree that the overall solution to this is not just theme file edits, but using a theme that works properly (and that the edits will have to be redone on each theme upgrade)?

    Swanson,

    They don’t have to change anything. They are NOT removing the color code from their theme option. Whatever is causing that problem is just a glitch and when it goes away whether by theme update or plugin removal, the site will use the color code in the theme option instead of the edited one.

    Browsers ignore the identical classes and use whatever comes first in the stylesheet. Worst case scenario they end up with redundant background colors which has absolutely no measurable effect on speed, performance or look of the site.

    Also it’s easier for me to give them a one-line change than sending them above their head looking for things they won’t understand. They are happy that the color is back and I might be wrong, but I think that’s all they care about anyway.
