Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

Solid background color

Solid background color

I'm working on a draft site for a non-profit that I'll move a little later. (Thus the inconsistency between website name and content.)

I would like to have a solid blue box around the whole site, and I can't figure out how to do it. I've added the border, but that's not what I'm really looking for.


There are huge white spaces on the left and right that I want to be blue. I know this is a silly question, but I'm completely lost!

At Layout -> Layout Container Style add
background: #123456;

For the sidebars: Sidebars -> LEFT sidebar style / RIGHT sidebar style
background: #123456;

For the center column: Center -> Center column style
background: #123456;

Er, I didn't explain myself well. I'm looking for the areas outside of the layout container to have a color. I've got inside worked out (I want it white). It's the outside that's frustrating me.

I've changed the color of the blog background as per your instructions above. However, I'm having problems with color of the background with the border around the blog itself. I used the example code in the layout section as follows:

border: solid 2px #315E37;
padding: 10px; (This effectively only affects top/bottom padding)
-moz-border-radius: 10px;
-khtml-border-radius: 10px;
-webkit-border-radius: 10px;
border-radius: 10px;

However, the color inside the border is the same as the color of the background. How do I change it so I can control the color inside the border.

See post #2, you might have other colors on the middle column and the sidebars. If this doesn't help post a URL please
