I am attempting to change the color outside the realm of the text and sidebars, I want it to have a dark background and the center to standout with the white/black text. So far in the other tutorials it showed how to change the background of the entire site. Any help would be appreciated.

Taylor, Can I get a link to your site and see where you're at? Did you try starting out with the fixed-width design mode? In the GLOBAL OPTIONS

Okay so that worked with giving it a centered look with a different colored background, however now it is grey and I went through the css as well as the custom code and neither one will change it

I'm assuming this is the color you want ` body.fixed_width { background-color:#071440!important; } ` Add this in the custom code area. Do not get used to the important declaration, but for now use it since we are still reordering some css for an update.
