i want the background on the site white but on the static home page I want it burgundy. I made an image that fills the home page but I have a white area 15px high at the bottom, between the image and the footer. I have removed all the instances of padding I can find but cannot remove it. In

Center column style

I changed the background to burgundy and that changed the background and made the white at the bottom disappear but it changed the background to burgundy for the whole site. Changing it back to white I changed the padding to

padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px;

but it did not remove the padding on the bottom. How can I remove this padding?

Thanks,

Dan

use CSS to change the background color and in the CSS selector prefix it with 'body.xxxxx' where xxxxx is a unique class that shows on the <body...> statement when on the front page and not on other pages.

You can use firebug or just look at the page source to figure this out.

I'm using an image in Body, Text and Links and a color on Center column style. How can I cause it to switch backgrounds or center column style on the index page? It seems that the problem is that the padding statement in Center column style is not working. I have put in several different values but they have no effect. There is still padding at the top and bottom of the center column.

That changed the overall background but did not change the background of the center column, where the problem is.

I have it now. I used your code to add a background image for the home page and another for the other pages and mad the center column background transparent and it works fine, Thanks!

but I still have one question, why was I unable to use center column style to make the top and bottom padding disappear using padding: 0px 10px;?

sorry, your first sentence looked like you wanted the background on the site to change.
if you want to change teh center column you need to use 'td#middle'
