change background colour in coraline theme

    hi, I’m struggling to change background colour for a specific page in coraline.

    I’ve tried following for changing entire theme bg:
    body {background-color:#b0c4de;}

    but that doesn’t work.

    if it did, I’d be able to specify:

    body-page-140 {background-color:#b0c4de;}

    any suggestions?

    The blog I need help with is



    It might save a great deal of time to have a list or guide for parameters that can be changed within a given theme.

    I found this page, and that may be what I’m looking for, only I don’t yet have enough knowledge/experience of CSS to be able to figure it out.

    Meanwhile, still trying to change page-specific background colour and page titles for that matter…



    The first item you pasted will work if you go to Appearance > Background and clear the color you’ve set there.

    The second won’t work because the selector is wrong. Needs to be:

    .page-id-140 {
        background-color: #b0c4de;

    To change the color of the page title, you need this:

    .page-id-140 .entry-title {
        color: #123456;

    General suggestion: learn to use Firebug.




    You’ve got me out of a fix again – many thanks.

    Firebug now up and running within Firefox – I had been working in Safari and Chrome, but it now looks like there’s a much better way of doing things.

    thanks again.
