^There is what I'm working with. (I know everything is sorta on top of each other atm, but I need to fix this problem before I can get things totally aligned)
Notice how the entry part has that white background attached? I'm sure in the style sheet somewhere it is defined but I just can't seem to fin dit after changing all these things. All the other things(sidebar, footer, etc) seem to be set with a transparent background...why isnt the entry part set the same way?
