Is background color in ThemeMagic or do we just change it in custom.css

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Is there a setting in ThemeMagic to change the background color for Newstream2?

I believe the color is a light great and might be #F1F1F1 but am not sure. I want to change it.

If it has to be changed in custom.css can you please give me a little snipped of css magic? I will probably change it to something like #eff9ff

thank you, Sean

I think it should be as simple as adding this to custom.css
body {
    background-color: #eff9ff;
}

Thanks to both of you. Interestingly enough there might be something else going on that is preventing this color from being able to be set. I put in the code that was provided just to see it on a temporary basis but it did not change the background color for me:

body {
background-color: #eff9ff;
}

ah

you're right this is the line in question

body .t3-wrapper {
background: #ffffff url(../../../../images/gradient.png) repeat-x !important;
}

So to overrule it you either add your own image file to the line above in the custom css file or use background-image: none

the simplest option for a colour would be

html body .t3-wrapper {background-image: none !important; background-color:red !important;}

replacing the red with your hex colour value

Hi Sean,

Sorry that variable isn't available in theme magic any more so it is a change via custom.css that is needed

Thank you very much! I changed the background using the hex value in the code you gave me. I did not touch the gradient.png and the background color changed just fine!

So, I am not sure what the use of the gradient.png file is for but I would sure like to know. I believe the gradient.png is actually white. So, that is white image is not being used for the main background image?

HiSean

It depends on the background colour its mostly a transition between a subtle colour and the background

if the colour is subtle you may well not need to change the image

Yes, my background color is very subtle. Thanks for the explanation. I think I am good with calling this a finished discussion. :-)
