Freshy theme won't let me change background

  1. Hi,

    I just recently got the CSS upgrade, and I've done some CSS before. I'm adding custom CSS to the existing "Freshy" theme, but it won't let me change the background. This:
    body {<br /> background:#738F98;<br /> background-image:url('http://dimastero.files.wordpress.com/2012/04/background-2012-4-2-png.png');<br /> }Doesn't do anything.

    Any ideas?

    The blog I need help with is worldofmindstorms.com.

  2. I did a quick Google search Freshy CSS change background site:en.forums.wordpress.com and think you may be able to find your answer is earlier threads. http://tinyurl.com/7l9o4ur
    Don't despair if you don't find it in those results, as Staff do provide support for CSS editing and will help you when they can.

  3. Freshy happens to set the background color on the page ID and not the body tag. Try switching out "#page" for "body" like this:

    #page {
        background:#738F98;
        background-image:url('http://dimastero.files.wordpress.com/2012/04/background-2012-4-2-png.png');
    }

    Freshy also uses a background image for the header that's got a gray background for part of it, and it looks weird if you change out the background color. One way around that would be to update the header background to a solid color like this:

    #title {
        margin: 0 auto;
        padding: 30px 20px 10px;
        width: 740px;
        background: black;
    }
  4. Thank you! Those two worked and I've got it figured out now :)

  5. Yay! Fantastic :)
