[SOLVED] Change Background Color based on Category Name

I have set up a blog aggregator that has left (blue) and right (Red) blogs. http://www.olddominionblogs.com and I would like to have the background color to be either red or blue depending on the category of the blog. (Well, pink and light blue.) I have labeled the syndicated blogs with 2 categories each, one lefty or righty and the other category is the blog name.

Anyone know if this can be done? And if so, how?

Do you mean you want the backrounnd of the post to be red or blue depending on the category?
You could do that with CSS
HTML Code:
.post.category-red {background: red;}
.post.category-blue {background: blue;}

Perfect. Small change to use correct category names and used hex colors to get readable shades.


.post.category-leftyblogs {background: #FFB6C1;}
.post.category-rightyblogs {background: #E0EEEE ;}
