background color

edited October 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
i want to change the background color of the discussions page only (not the side panel, or the top header where the title goes). i'm using vanilla with the default theme but i haven't figured out which property i need to change in the css file. could anyone help? thanks.

    By adding the #DiscussionsPage #Content section below to the vanilla.css file right before the #DiscussionsPage .Bottom section, you'll have a green background around the Discussions area on the DiscussionsPAge:
    #DiscussionsPage #Content { /*jimw*/ padding: 8px 6px 2px 6px; background:green; } #DiscussionsPage .Bottom { margin: -6px 0px 8px 0px; }

    thanks. i'm also trying to make the whole square below the top header and the side panel the same color. any other suggestions? thanks.

    That's the "body" you want to change.
    body { margin:0px; padding:0px; background:#fff url('panelfade.gif') top left repeat-y; }
    Try changing the #fff to green or red to see what happens. Then, once you know that this is the area you want to change, put in the color you want.

    If you are using FF as your browser, you really should add the Web Developer add-on to help you identify the css stuff on your page.

    jimw, I'm disappointed in how long it took you to answer that one! :-)

    Seriously, your depth knowledge, spot-on understanding of the issues and precise replies is worth $$$!
