Is that right?
Thanks so much for your help with this. I think you may have it backwards or may not understand how i've got wordpress set up.
I've got WP installed in my root, so the the landing page or "Home" page is actually a "post" page.
For this and all other "post" pages I want to change "just" the footer background to a solid color from the body background. This is done through the theme footer options and works fine. you can see an example of this at the root landing page/"post" here.
Landing "post" Page
This boxes in the content in the body with the side columns with the same color. See how the side columns and the footer box in the body content are the same salmon color?
The only time i want to alter this look is when i create a new "Page" with wordpress.
In the case of new pages I have the side menus removed so i dont want to have any color in the footer box background. You can see an example of this here:
Single Page "page" with your css mod
This is one of the pages I altered with your code suggestion. See how the body background continues down the entire page? That's the look i want, but I also want to display the footer credits "without" any footer background color change, so the the green body background continues down the entire page, just as it looks there now.
I removed your code on this page:
Page "page" without your css mod
See how the theme footer change shows, the salmon colored background in the footer box?
I want to remove the salmon colored background in the footer box on the "page" Pages only, but leave the footer credits still showing.
So, in essence, the only time i want to make an alteration would look something like this:
If a new post is a "page" Page...then
footer background would be null
(allowing the main body background to run to the bottom of the page)
This would still display the footer, but without the salmon colored footer background.
Hope this makes things clearer and I haven't made things more confusing....
