I’m using the Newscast theme with style 1. I’m looking to change the background of the theme but leave the header as is (everything up until the slider) however i’m a little difficulty as when i change the background it also changes the header.
Look forward to a reply!
The header background is done with a background image and color applied to the body. This image also provides the background for the navigation bar (the gradient) so you’ll need to create a new background image (or modify the current one) then replace it.
Thanks for the help. My next question would be, if i’m using the style 1 CSS as it comes and i wanted to float an image either side of the main content space, how would i do that.
Well, one way you could do this would to be use one big background image. The space where the content is, is 960px wide, so you could create a whitespace there for the content.
Then change the body background image to your image and change its attributes to:
background: #fff url(http://...);
