Trying to get the bars that go down the side of the page to match the top colors, or to continue the background image.

Thanks...Tim

I tried both these suggestions inside the stylesheets subdirectory and uploaded it to the server and this seemed not to work.

- I have 3 CSS files in htat directory. One is called shop.css, shop650.css and a shop1.css?

If you open shop.css in notepad or an html editor and find:
/* Left column- categories, currency, language etc */

All your style settings for the left column are found here. You can add a background colour or image to #left h2 {....} and to #left .box {......}

Your site will use shop.css by default so you can ignore the other *.css files

Hope this helps

Thank you - that was helpful and I was able to change a few details. BUt for the most part, this is not the area of the page I was talking about. To the left of this area, I still have a white background I would like to either fill with a background graphic or at the very least add the matchiing colour to it. The area aslo appears on the right side.

outside of the menue areas.

Thanks....Tim

Hi Tim,

in shop.css you could try adding your image or a background colour to the page's body style: body{......}

or within site boundaries in: #container, #wrap {.....}

That didn't do it either - if you look on my main site see how the background goes all the way down the sides of the page?

http://www.pretzeltwister.com/pages/main.html

Thats what I am trying to figure out in;

http://store.pretzeltwister.com/

Thanks for all the input so far.

I think I have that now to no avail.

#container,#wrap {
width:760px; /* change value to adjust width */
text-align:left;
margin:5px auto;
font-size:12px;
font-family:Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
bgcolor="#FFFFFF"
}

make sure you write the line like this:

background:#FFFFFF;

the semi-colon is important and don't add quote marks

this is the one im working on http://208.112.68.227/

are you trying to accomplish the same with the background image?

from looking at your shop.css, i did not modify the body style in my shop.css, i only added the background property to the body tag itself in shoppage_header.htm AND added the bgColor property to the main table also. all the other changes occurred in the shop.css.
