Background color of overall page

Post by aaldere1 »

I have a question concerning the overall background of the page.

I have been able to get rounded corners with a specific color, but I can't seem to change the background to the color that I want. I've fiddled with the body tag in the .css file, but when i change the background-color value, nothing happens. On the main phpbb.com page, see how they have the rounded corners, with a grey background? It's the grey color that I would like to obtain but can't seem to figure out how it's done.

In Color.css

Code: Select all

html, body {
   color: #536482;
   background-color: #FFFFFF;
if you want add a background image, just create you image, put in the default images theme folder and add:

Code: Select all

   background-image: url("{T_THEME_PATH}/images/bg_main.gif");

The background-color for the body tag is defined twice. Once in common.css and also in the colours.css. Just remove one of them ;)

That works great, but what if I wanted the background to show through the gaps in the main forums body. The white part as seen here.
