change blog background colors

  • Anonymous


    Hello all,

    I’m trying to change the background of the posts… (the white background) to black or blue.. but i can’t seem to find it anywere:S

    can someone help me?

    i’m working on the site:

    all thank you for the help!



    If You change post background there are 10-15 other places You need to change 🙂

    First of all:

    1. Have You made a child theme, so You have a style.css for Your changes?

    2. Install Firefox & Firebug (Trust me)

    Anyway, Your .post background: (In Black 🙂

    .post {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #000000;
    border-bottom: 1px solid #CCCCCC;
    border-radius: 0 0 0 0;
    border-top: 1px solid #D8D8D8;
    margin-bottom: 5px;
    overflow: visible;
    padding: 25px 15px 20px 70px;
    position: relative;




    You are answering question I had with background color change for posts, posted few days back. This is many steps? Was wondering where one looks for all the places to change color myself. How complicated to add this to a feature within the theme options?



    Well, if You dont make a Child Theme, the changes are gone with next Theme update,

    so I was just trying to help You. Also when I saw Your posts with black background.

    You find the places with Firebug!

    Feature request? 🙂

    I am reluctant to add options pertaining to styling to the theme’s options page. Firstly, I think it’s something not worth pursuing because you never can know all the different styling modification that people will have in mind. Secondly, styling changes made in the options page will have to be loaded on every page load and is never cached by the browser, increasing bandwidth usage and slowing down page load, particularly with heavy modifications.

    Child theme is definitely the best way. For modifications that span only a few lines of additional CSS code, that’s what the Custom CSS option is there for.
