Hi

 

Anyone have an idea if it is possible to make the background different to main body of the template?

 

when i change the background colour it changes the whole of the page colour. What i would like is the main page to be white (in between the red lines), then the background a different colour ( marked in green). see pic

 

If that makes sense.

 

Using PS 1.4.7.0 with the 1.5 template

 

any help or tips on how to do this would be appreciated.

 

Many Thanks

 

Chris

Good morning,

 

In global.css you need to change your background to whatever you want and also change the left, centre and right columns to whatever you want.

 

I am out at the moment, if no one else gives you a definitive answer I'll let you know later

exactly as perfumeskunk said, you must edit global.css file.

 

add to body {background:#FF0000} (this is red color, you can add other)

and to #header, #columns, #footer {background:#FFFFFF} (it's white)

Hi Thanks for the info, however having looking at the global css, there does not seem to be a left right and center column in it with background color section.

 

As you can see from the pic, when i change the background it changes the colour of the main body of the site, the center, left and right seems to be transparent and i can not see in the css where to change.

 

 

i have attached the global css file and pic.

 

 

Thanks

Sorry to be a pain

 

1 last question.

 

Is it possible to extend slightly some how so there is a little bit of white on the left and right, as it looks like it cuts off abit , if you know what i mean.

 

See Pic,

 

Thanks

you must add padding parameter:

 

#header, #columns, #footer {background:#FFFFFF; padding:5px;}
