  1. Hi All,

    I'm new here and starting up my own blog ! I know you hear this all the time =:)

    I love the themes this team has created, but I would like to change it from a white background to a different color background

    Could any one assist me with this or point me in the right direction ?

    Thank you so much !

  2. you're going to need to learn about CSS, there is a ton of info available via basic google search. i would also recommend that you http://www.getfirebug.com it is a firefox extension that lets you examine the CSS properties of elements.

    all CSS changes occur in your style.css

    you'll want to add

    body {
    background: #333333;
    }

    or the appropriate hexadecimal code for the color you want

  3. Hello, helgatheviking

    Thank you for your assistance.. I do not know anything about CSS, I will try my best mate google if not can you recommend a simple book I can ready at all ?

    Thank you for the firebug tip I have installed this and will learn how to use it..

    do I change this in the style.css ? I'm not able to see any background commands in here at the moment.

    Thanks again for your time...
