How do I change the background to a solid color?

Post by kallie on September 20th 2010, 10:46 pm

I'm trying to change my forum background to be a solid purple color but I'm continually getting large grey areas on the left and right sides for the pages. How do I get the purple color to stretch the entire width of the screen?

Thanks,
Kallie

Well I'm not sure where I should be making this change -- example - in this help forum the side panels are a green shade - in my forum they are pukey grey -- I'm not that knowledgable in making changes in the css file, but I do believe it can be done through color or pic management just not sure I am doing it right.

Can you provide a link to your forum so we can see it ourselves?

Thanks

I'm able to make the change if I use the phb2 version but not the phb3. I installed a canned phb2 template but I prefer the v3 format.

Try adding this to your css

Code:

body {background-repeat: repeat-y;}

Hope this helps
