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

background: #000000;

is right. The Post container is a box for every single post or page. It contains several smaller containers, the kicker, the headline, the byline, the bodycopy and the footer. All of these can be styled separately

What you probably want to change is Theme Options -> Layout -> Layout Container Style

If i add the background: #000000; to the layout container style , it only goes black in the posts area again . Not behind .

I really like the look of this one http://stephanieizard.com/?q=cook I know its not all black on there , but you get the idea ...

Should i be adding someting other than background ? I tried like this too
background: #000000;
color: #000000;
layout container style: #000000;
layout container style background: #000000;

what am i missing ?

You should be in Body/Text and Links for this. You want the main body background, not the container.

I have my main background set to be white, as in background: #FFFFFF;
