    Hi there,
    I wanted to change the background of my website to a color, while leaving the main page color white. (when I say background, I mean the sides of the site that do not contain any content…I don’t know what this is actually called if not the background)
    So, few weeks ago I added the following CSS code:

    body {
    background:#FFD14A;
    }

    This worked and it was perfect! But tonight I went in and was playing with the custom fonts and link colors and the background got all screwed up. It’s now doing what it did before I entered the code–it’s either ALL YELLOW or ALL WHITE.
    I have triple checked that all of my custom settings are correct (in the custom background section it’s set to white) and I have restored this css code to a few weeks ago when I first changed it. (please note, this is the ONLY code i have entered)
    Please help! 1) How do I get the 2 different colors 2) Why was it working and then all of a sudden stopped? and 3)what the heck are those side margins on a website called, if not the background…and if they are the background, what is the main page background called?

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is artifactuallyyours.com.

    Looks like you were able to get this figured out because I can see different colors for the body background and content area background at http://artifactuallyyours.com/

    I’m not sure! It’s hard to say since I didn’t see the problem happening live myself.

    Background color is the right thing. I would call them the body background for the part that doesn’t have any text on it (because that’s the body tag in the HTML) and main content or main column background color for the background that has content.
