using station pro.
I would like to change the background color (content area where text is not the background of the page) on post pages and not my feature front page. I guess I would really like to know how to change the text area (content) background on all pages and posts but not my feature front page.

Is this possible? where would I go and how would I go about this?

Yes, start with using the 'custom CSS' option you may try adding this and go from there: `.hentry {background: #YOURHEXCODE;}`

Ok now that I messed with this for a few hours, I need some more help please. I can get the background, change text etc, BUT I can't get the headline for each post to change color, ie: black so this is great, makes text on page black and background white, .hentry {color:black;background:#FFF;} but no matter what I do to change the h1 it doesn't work? Is there a way to do an inline style for h1 so it overrides the main style sheet? Any assistance is appreciated

Ok, I just uploaded the zipped version of of Whitehouse Pro through WordPress. When I went to Appearance> Themes, I scrolled to the bottom and saw that the thumbnail was not visible. I scrolled to the bottom of that page and saw this: Broken Themes The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template. Name Description WhiteHouseProFiles Stylesheet is missing. I know nothing of coding so can you tell me what the problem is?????

@liasson Make sure you unzip the file you get from us! In that unzipped folder, you'll find a readme that explains installation.
