    I'd like to add a background color to the SidePosts "post" on the sidebar. Right now it is transparent and the text doesn't show up against my regular background. Is this easy to do? What would I put in to the css file and where? I've been poking around in it but haven't figured it out yet.

    Given that no one knows your site, it's impossible to say. So a site url could come in quite handy about now...

    Sorry. Didn't think looking at the site would be handy. It is just a PTO site for our schools. It is at chagrinfallspto.org . I would like to use Sideposts to display current events on the sidebar - but nothing shows up well with the corkboard background image. I need to have a background for the lettering.

    Does that help?

    Thanks for taking the time to respond. I know it is a basic question. Any direction would be appreciated.

    By "Sideposts", I'm assuming you mean the right-hand sidebar. That theme doesn't lend itself to easy editing. Try editing style.css and changing:

    #sidebar {
    color:#FFFFFF;
    float:right;
    font-size:14pt;
    width:200px;
    }

    to

    #sidebar {
    background:#fff;
    color:#606060;
    float:right;
    font-size:14pt;
    width:210px;
    }

    Then add:

    #sidebar a {color:#606060;}
