  • Yes the lines you would need to change are in your cstyle-weaver.css. Since your site use with background for some of its elements you will need to change those rules first and then add a white background to your post div.

    With about 5 lines of new code you site would look like this

    I recommand you read a bit on child

    Let me know what you think and i can guide you through a few changes

    wow, just spotted an even bigger problem with my sidebar now. It displays perfectly fine on the browsers im using but your image shows it’s gone waaay out of proportion. Anyhow, that’s for another post….

    I’ve read that page (and a couple of others on child themes) and I can honestly say I’m still boggled.

    I’m guessing I need to create a child theme within weaver.css, editing the #content file to manipulate the box models paddings, margins etc.

    But that’s a guess, of which I have no real idea how to make reality.

    I’d like to keep the background to remain the way it is, with the container staying all white, the excerpt boxes could be a slight shade of grey or green….as opposed to your example with the background showing through.

    I still recommand making a child theme but if you only want to change the background color of your post you need to change the style-weaver.css file on line 101 from:

    .post {
    background-color: transparent;


    .post {
    background-color: #eee;

    and you can change the #eee for any alphanumeric color value

    Cool, what a simple solution…
    Thanks buddy.

    I’m still getting to grips with CSS so I’ll look into child themes but that should do for now.

    What browser are you using to view my site? That sidebar issue is strange, with the icons going massive.
    Don’t suppose you know what caused that? It looks fine in Firefox & IE.

    I’m using chrome 14.0.835.163 m and I have no idea what is causing this.

    Decided to delete the images from my library and reload them as 36×36 images. works like a charm now 🙂

    Cheers for you help with the css for the post excerpts. Hopefully over time i’ll get better, i reckon my code is riddled with errors! 🙁
