bkellum Posted September 12, 2010 Share Posted September 12, 2010 Hi Bill, Thanks so much for responding, I really, really appreciate it as I'm desperate for help. I just tried using 'developer tools' in IE8. When I use 'find' and then 'select element by click' and select the relevant section of the site I find the CSS info for the font family and size under 'body' and 'poition', 'padding', 'overflow' etc under 'DIV#content' but I can find nothing for the background colour which is white. I know what every image link and colour reference in my stylesheet do (from trial and error) and none of them control the background colour in this particular box. If an area was not asigned a colour or image would it be white by default? Is it possible that there simply is no command controlling the background colour of this particular area in my stylesheet? I looked at the default OSCommerce stylesheet and noticed quite a lot more code than is in the CSS for the template I'm using? (I'm sorry if that's a really stupid question, I'm new to all this.) I sent you the URL by private message. If there's any way you could have a quick look when you have a moment and see if you can find the code that controls the background colour for big white box that runs down the middle of the page, I would be eternally grateful. I think that somewhere is a #FFFFFF, that I want to change to #000000, (or a little white image file somewhere) I just can't find them. Please understand, it's not laziness on my part, I spent hours trying to find the solution online before making a post on this forum and I tried to use your advice about using 'developer tools' I'm just well and truly lost. Thanks again for taking the time to respond. My absolute best wishes, Tom Add a background color to div id="content-wrapper" which is within your template stylesheet.
