Under Construction

Does anyone know how to change the color of my blog? The red part where all the writing is? I know how to change the background picture, but not the other part. HELP!!!!

Kim, go to layout then fonts and Colors and you can change everything there. If you want a custom one, its more tricky

hey yeah i'm working on it! i've been trying to tweek mine, but all i can say is start off fresh with a more basic layout like the ones with tan in that area, but beware u will loose all your contacts! so write them down or put them in favorites on your computer so you can just add them in, as to change the color and font after that, i'm still working on it, sorry i don't have any other solution!

To do a custom background you have to tweak the html code and it took me a long time to get it right. I use google pages to keep copies of seamless tiles I like and then I copy the link location to the parenthesis behind background. This is what the code looks like in mine -your width will be different since I changed that on mine as well. Good Luck!

#main-wrap1 {
width:785px;
float:$startSide;
background:$mainBgColor url("http://markandemilysimmons.googlepages.com/sand1.jpg")

Hey Kimberly,
I just figured this out. You already have your html background, you just want to swith the color. So on your blog click on "edit html"
then scroll down until you find this: /* Outer-Wrapper
----------------------------------------------- */
#outer-wrapper {
background: #dde9ff;

The "#dde9ff;" is the color of your inside thing-in your case red.

To pick a color and change the code, click on fonts and colors and choose a color. There is a little box that will give you the code for the color, for example blue is #99c9ff So replace your existing number/color with this one or another code and it will change only your inside color.

Seriously, you have to try this. If if doesn't work, call me or email me-if I didn't explain it well enough. I just spent all weekend learning how to do this type of stuff.

Miss ya,
Saun
