go to MTO->CSS Files->Content.css and add your css to change the body however you want.

Hi

The css file name is 10-content.css, applied this change


/************************************************** ******************

<BODY> for TEXT

************************************************** ******************/



body
{


margin: 0;

padding: 0;

font-family: "Segoe UI", "Lucida Grande", "Helvetica Neue", sans-serif;

font-size: 15px;


opacity: 0; /* <--- will be turned on ( = set to '1' ) with jQuery

after google fonts, if any, have loaded and masonry layout,

if any, was applied */



background-color: #8181F7;
}

The background color did not changed.

That code works for me so I would assume you have a typo. What is the url?

please go to MTO->Export/Import settings and copy your export to a TEXT file and attach it to a reply.

I just noticed you said you changed '10-content.css' (???)

In post #2 I told you to go to 'MTO->CSS Files->Content.css' and make the change. How did you colclude you should change '10-content.css' from that? Did I confuse you?

MTO refers to the Montezuma Theme Options in the WordPress backend. (Dashboard->Appearances->Montezuma Theme Options)

If the background is changed, the content area also changes.
Is it possible to change only background, with out making changes to content area layout?

The content area does not change color - it has no color assigned to it (it's transparent) so the body color shows thru. You just need to use some CSS on the main section

You need to learn a little. Use a code examiner (like the FireBug extension in FireFox) and find the <div...> that surrounds the main content. See if it has an ID=... and then you can code your CSS selector and CSS rule to apply to that section of the page.

While I could give you the answer...read my signature
