Widget/Sidebar background color (5 posts)

    My current theme places a white background behind the content of pages and blog posts. However, it makes the background of all widgets in my sidebars transparent. With my current website background, this makes it hard to read the content of widgets, especially on my homepage, where most of the content is in widgets. I'd rather try changing the background of the widgets before I change the site's background.

    How can I override the theme and place a solid white background behind the widgets/sidebars? My homepage with widgets can be seen here. A regular page with one sidebar can be seen here.

    Thanks!

    I'm sorry but as you are using a commercial theme, you need to seek support from the theme's vendors.

    esmi,

    It's a free theme, which woothemes doesn't provide support for. I know WordPress doesn't support commercial themes but my question was really more about how to change the background of any widget/sidebar using css, regardless of what theme I'm using.

    I'm sorry but it is beyond the scope of these forums to deal with basic CSS issues. Try a dedicated CSS resource such as http://www.css-discuss.org/ instead. In the meantime, using Firefox with the Firebug add-on for this kind of CSS work.

    There are plenty of other resolved topics posted here with similar issues regarding widgets and basic css, so I really didn't think it was unreasonable to ask this question here. I can look for an answer elsewhere, but I was just wondering if anyone with css experience could help me.
