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

I have created a custom header widget for an image and email sign up and i can't get the stupid widget background to change color.

The custom widget is called "image" FYI.


I have tried the following:
#image {
background-color:#FFFFFF !important;
}

#image .bfa_widget_area {
background-color:#FFFFFF !important;
}

#text-2{
background-color:#FFFFFF !important;
}

I have even tried doing inline CSS in the widget:
<div id="main-area" style="background-color:#FFFFFF !important;">
<div id="picture">
<img src="http://www.johnlollar.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/john-lollar-home.jpg" />
</div>
<div id="email" style="height:281px;">
Stay Connected with Email Updates<br /><img style="padding:10px 0;" src="http://www.johnlollar.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/stars.jpg" />
<br><br>
<!-- Begin MailChimp Signup Form -->
...
</div>
</div>

I am lost. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

try this to see if it will help you figure out the issue. Add the following to the CSS Insdert
HTML Code:
#image {
background-color:#FFFFFF !important;
height: 100px;
border: 5px solid red;
}

It worked! I guess I just needed to give #image a height. Thanks so much!
