have inspected element for this site and try as I might changing bg color in body for style.css makes no difference no matter how much caches are cleared.

I want to leave the tiled background and just change the inset white to another color. I didn't see background color in LAYOUT REGION sorry..this has been solved now.

  • it was just a css question not php or sql but i just should have studied the style sheet longer to find corresponding area. – cea Aug 9 '15 at 14:25
  • both answers had no way of knowing which background I meant - my apologies for that. – cea Aug 9 '15 at 14:26

The reason why the color is not showing is because you have this already:

body {
    background: url(images/body.png) fixed;

from my_elegant.css.

You have a background image already set. If you want to use a css color then you need to tweak the css for body to something like this:

body {
  background-color: #000;

or you can have an image background and a color at the same time:

body {
  background: #fff url(images/body.png) no-repeat center top;

If you are using style.css make sure that the file is properly added otherwise it could result to 404 and all the css in that file will not get applied. You can use drupal_add_css() api to add new css file or in the .info of your theme.

  • I want to leave the body.png and just change color of the white inset- how do I do that please? – cea Aug 9 '15 at 7:20

It's not Drupal issue, it's a CSS issue; looks like your site doesn't load style.css but it using my_elegant.css file"http://krom.club/sites/all/themes/my_elegant/my_elegant.css?nssjk2". Also you need to remove the background image and apply your desired background color

body {
background-image: none;
background-color: #FFF; /* yout color */
  • I don't mean the tiled background I mean the inset white I'm trying to change.. – cea Aug 9 '15 at 7:17
