Changing theme content background colour

    Hi Guys,

    This is probably a really simple thing but I can’t for the life of me work out how to do it, I did try a google and a search in here but I think my terms are too broad.

    Basically all I want to do is change the content background colour on my wordpress theme, its currently set to transparent but it makes all my text and content mucky, so i would just like a nice padded white background!!

    Heres the Css stylesheet, I think this is where I’m meant to be looking! If someone could help me out It would be much appreciated, sorry for being a retard!

    body {

    font-family: 'Droid Sans', sans-serif;


    background: #EE2C2C url('images/pv_bg_01a.jpeg');


    .box {


    margin:0 auto;

    We cannot help with your with WordPress.ORG software install on this support forum, where bloggers pay for an annual upgrade to gain CSS access and Staff support for CSS editing. and run on different software and themes of the same name are coded differently. All support for local installs of WordPress.ORG software is provided here http://wordpress.ORG/support/

    If you have not registered a username account yet you can do so on the top right hand corner of the page I just linked to so you can post to the correct support forums.



    My blog is still offline and I will be hosting it …

    If you are referring to a free hosted blog that you did purchase a custom design upgrade for from, then know that the theme you are CSS editing cannot be transferred to a install.
