Separation of Background color canvas

Recommended Posts

Hi Chuck, If you're using PlatformPro, then you can make some modifications via Settings->Design Control. The rest can easily be accomplished via custom CSS.

Since you're using PlatformPro, it's possible to change the color of the header so that it creates another separation of background color (like the one shown in this Van Dyck site: http://vandycks.org/). Does that make sense?

There, I'm referring to the split nature of the content screen. Is that possible?

If you use the full-width framework (as I mentioned in your other topic), it's possible to create that color separation effect.

Catrina, I don't understand how this can be done .. pls look at this url http://vandycks.org/ That is the exact look that I am trying to create. Also, relative to the full width screen .. how do you put content in the wider part ..I see how you get the color background but not how you can put content on it

You need to set your blog layout mode to full-width framework (in Design Control) first and then the color customization can be done.

not sure I explained well what I'm looking for here. please go to vandycks.org. You will notice two parts of the page .. 1 with News and Login , and 1 with the Welcome message and Latest news and the Contact Us form. Between those is a slight separation of about 1/8 inch .. how do I create that separation of color and page?

A thick border can be added and that can create the color separation. You can use this CSS:

#primary-nav {border bottom: 5px solid #YOURCOLOR;}

Replace YOURCOLOR with the color you want for the separation.
