    Im using the Paperpunch Theme, great theme but I want to make some color changes. I have bought the “CSS upgrade” (my blog is hosted at

    Please let me know how to change the grey background color. Which commando to use in the CSS editor?

    Best regards

    The blog I need help with is


    You don’t need the custom CSS to change background color on Paperpunch. In your dashboard go to appearance > background and enter the hex color code for the color you want and save changes.

    See the red background here: . I did that from appearance > background.



    Thanks, I have missed that setting earlier :-)

    If I want to change the color of the borders, how?


    What exactly are you talking about when you say “borders?”

    There is a grey 1px border on the posts and widgets. Delete everything in the CSS edit window and add the following to your CSS and then change the hex color codes to what you want. Make sure that “add to existing…” is checked. The preview has not been working well lately so you might have to save the change and then look at your blog.

    .post-box, .alert-box {
    border:1px solid #DEDEDE;
    #sidebar .widget {
    border:1px solid #DEDEDE;


    I tried to add that code to the CSS-editor, saved changes… but borders did not change.


    Did you change the color code values on the border attributes? The border around the white areas on posts and widgets is only 1px wide, so if the color you choose is only subtly different, you probably aren’t going to see it. You can change the above colors to #CC0000 to get a feel for it. You can if you wish change the width of the border also.



    It works, thanks! :-)


    You’re welcome.
