    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 {
    background:#738F98;
    background-image:url('http://dimastero.files.wordpress.com/2012/04/background-2012-4-2-png.png');
    }
    Doesn’t do anything.

    Any ideas?

    The blog I need help with is worldofmindstorms.com.

    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

    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;
    }

    Thank you! Those two worked and I’ve got it figured out now :)
