Hi Andrew,
I have been trying to no avail to change the background color on our site. It currently is an off-white, and we want to restore it to a pure white, or better hue. I placed this in Site Background (CSS): "body {background-color:#FFFFFF}".

Can you please let me know what I am doing wrong. Here is a link to my page: http://workforce20.com/wordpress/

you don't need the 'body' just the CSS part for this option. #fff should work just fine :)

I have a similar issue. I am NOT an html guy or software engineer by any stretch of the imagination, but I am adept at using WP. I have WHP, and am trying to enter this CSS Background Shorthand to change the background color of just one Feature screen. Just want to change the background of a feature box to white. Simple as that. What do I enter into that box called "Feature Background (CSS Background Shorthand)"?

You would do the same thing: enter #fff. The only problem you might run into is that you'll have to change text colors as well. You would do that with custom css (in custom code options) something like: `#feature h1, #feature p {color: #000}`

OK, yup, got it now. Did not understand CSS shorthand. Now I do. Unfortunately, that's not what I thought I wanted to accomplish. I want to change the background color of JUST the feature window - the 610px by 340px opening - in WHP. Is there a simple way to do that?

Have you tried using the "Feature Background (CSS - Optional)" field to accomplish this?

Need more clarification on these questions... we've addressed the numbers one before... its hard to change them based on the JS library.

I've addressed your font-sizing question in your other thread.
