I can't seem to find in the css or the html where to change the general background color of my site. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Here's my site:
http://www.teamdesertedge.com/

Notice the gray sides? I want them black. Thank you so much for any help.

There is a background image set on these:

<div id="grunge_middle">
<div id="grunge_bottom">
<div id="grunge_top">

I do not see any image with that title in my directory. Are you sure it isn't a background color that is set?

You have to look in the css. It's bakcground images set on those divs.

I see reference to those "grunge" settings mentioned above in both the CSS and the HTML. I suck at code, so I don't know what the div id means. If I understand you right, you are saying the div_id is set to use images titled grunge_top, grunge_middle and grunge_ bottom? I just can't seem to find any images with those titles in my template.

I think there is a global background color set. when I remove those images from the html, the side graphics disappear, and I only have the gray background. I just want the overall gray to be black.

neat tool, but i cannot see where to change my overall background color. Seems simple, but apparently it is not.

Have you tried to change body { background-color: #313131}?

Yes, but the only place I see that is here:

div.search input.inputbox {
background: #313131;
border: 1px solid #000;
padding: 3px;

And that doesn't seem to effect anything I can see.
