Support » Fixing WordPress » Trouble changing content background

  • Hi-

    There’s a ton of posts out there about changing the content area background color, but none seem to address this problem:

    I want to have different content background colors for different static pages. In the <body> section of my CSS, I added: {
    color: #hex;

    but that just changes the text color…

    background-color: #hex changes the exterior content color. Any idea what I’m doing wrong?

    Thanks so much!

    Your CSS selector is not specific to the section of the page you want to modify — try using Firebug tool to work with CSS — you can quickly and easily see which CSS selector you’d want to use for the new code.

    If you still need help, post a link to your site — without seeing the page itself, it’s almost impossible to help with things like this.

    Thanks for your fast response! The site is so I want to change the content color of (for instance) to match the color of the logo in the top left.

    I’m downloading the firebug tool now, thanks for the suggestion. Is there a code that is specific to content background color?

    The class for the post backgrounds is .post-body — line 1361 in style.css. So you could try as the selector .page-id-XX .post-body But I see that your theme is from Artisteer which creates tons of really weird, messy code — so it may take a lot of fooling around with various selectors and margins and padding to get it to look right. You might want to post on the Artisteer forums — as they understand how their themes are set up.

    Will do, thanks. Meantime, I’m having the same results in .post-body… that is,

    color: hex changes text color.
