[resolved] [Theme: Pinboard] background colour (6 posts)

    I really like the Pinboard theme. There's a lot of colours that can be changed in the theme-options. But I can't find a way to change the greyish colour that is the background of the header and also sits behind the posts and the widgets. Can anyone tell me if I'm overlooking a simple line of css? Thanks!

    Yes, the color can undoubtedly be changed in the CSS code -- try using Firebug to help you find which CSS code is setting that color -- and what you need to change.

    For more specific help, post a link to your site.

    This CSS is setting that background color:

    #wrapper {
        background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #F8F8F8;
        box-shadow: 0 0 18px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.4);
        margin: 0 auto;
        max-width: 1140px;
        overflow: hidden;
        position: relative;

    Do be aware that you should be using a Child Theme or Custom CSS option or plug-in for making changes to your theme.

    If that does not change it everywhere, you can search the CSS file for that color code -- as it may be set in other places as well as the above.

    Great! That does the trick! I'm using a child-theme indeed. Now the only thing I have to find out, is how I increase the box-shadow around the posts and pages to make them stand out a little more... (there's so many box-shadow entries in the css).
