Hi there. I would like to change the left sidebar color on my homepage to white so I can add images there. The rest of the sidebars will contain text so the color background is fine. I searched the forums and found that the following code might work:

td#left.page-id-4 {
background-color: #ffffff !important;
}

I tried placing this in CSS Inserts, however the sidebar is still in color on the home page.

I am using ATA 3.5.3 and WP 3.0.1.

Thank you!

Try this
HTML Code:
.page-id-4 td#left {
background-color: #ffffff !important;
}
You may not need the !important

Do you have a caching plugin?

No... I am just trying to figure out why your white background in the left sidebar doesn't show on the home page.

The other code worked for me but try this. Also make sure there isn't conflicting code further down in CSS inserts.
HTML Code:
body.page-id-4 td#left {
background-color: #ffffff !important;
}
OR
HTML Code:
body.home td#left {
background-color: #ffffff !important;
}

Thanks, Larry. It works now. Silly mistake. I had a } before the start of the code. Once I removed the } it worked fine...
