Help With Background please

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I have a black background image i would like to use, so when i upload it, you can't read my post, titles and those sorts of things because the text is black and the background i want to use is black

 

What i want, is to have my post area white. For instance, lets take a look at this post on my page http://www.grimygossip.com/2011/03/09/the-game-b-e-t-the-ultimate-fail-what-happened/

 

Now, What i want is a black image background, but I need everything white from the post title, all the way down to the submit button of the leave comment section. This is very important to me. I would also like to have this on the main page Grimy Gossip Entertainment . So basically the post area will be white, and then there will be black on the left side of the post area from the background, and black on the right side of the side bar from the black background

 

A good example of this would be this link here over at tmz

http://www.tmz.com

 

Now, there is a plugin that will create a white background for the post area , but the problem with it is who wants to have to manually go into a plugin and activate the white background for the post, and also that plugin didnt make a white background from the post title all the way to the comment area, it was just the post text of what i typed. Please help this is very important to me to fix the code to do this.

 

Im new to css so step by step instructions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys

 

As you can see my side bar is a light grey color i used a script someone gave me to make that happen, but i need help with the other parts. Thanks

In order to make your text white you will need to edit the style.css file and find any and all intances of color:#??? and change them to be #fff. Keep in mind that the text color are set as black by default thus does not require a css style. But in a nutshell, that is how you change the color of the text is by editing the style.css file either through the wordpress admin or ftp.

Looks fine to me so I'm assuming you fixed the problem.

 

But in case you haven't I did have an idea. You want a black (image) background, white posting area and black text?

What you can do with the CSS is make your background black, then put your posting area in a wrapper DIV. Then define the background of that wrapper DIV to be say either full on white or if you want to get crazy make a semi-transparent gif. That way they could see thru it to whatever that background image is. Just don't make it so transparent it makes reading the text hard.
