Cloudbase 2 - change background color

Postby krcroteau » Wed Nov 23, 2011 1:04 am

New to Joomla, still can't figure out how to change the background color. I want my entire site to have ONE background color and potentially a small border. Not sure what they are called. There is the background, site, and module. Site would be exactly the same as Imagemax.biz.

I also want to remove the formatting of the menu bar, change the font color, and my side menu is a grid.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Generally, in these situations you could use the tool FireBug to inspect elements and view the css entries.

The tool FireBug that is available in browsers such as FireFox and Chrome could be used for this purpose. With FireBug you can inspect an element in a web page and find out its css entries and in which file the entries are located. You could even change the css entries to see how it affects the look and feel of your site. Once you are satisfied you could incorporate the changes in the actual file.

Review the file http://docs.joomla.org/Tutorial:Using_Firebug_With_Your_Joomla_Website for more information about how to use FireBug.

Thanks imanickam for your answer. It is really helpful, I've spent hours and hours trying to find where the appropriate code is in css. Now I can easily find the line and preview the changes. Again thanks a lot
