How to change background color

February 13th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Some concrete5 themes allow to customize background color from admin dashboard. Try this:

1. Sign in to concrete5 dashboard.
2. Go to ‘Pages and Themes‘ section.
3. Click ‘Customize‘ button for a theme you want to edit.
4. If the theme supports the feature, you’ll see ‘Background‘ in theme customization options. You can choose any color using color picker and preview it almost immediatelly. Click ‘Save’ to apply the change.

    How do you change the background colour of the page if your theme does not support it?

    If a concrete5 theme doesn’t support the “Customize” functionality, then the only way to modify the background color is to edit the theme css file.

    Depending on the html structure, it might be something like

    body { background-color: #ffffff; }


    div.wrapper { background-color: #ffffff; }

    As for our themes, most of them currently do not support the “Customize” functionality, but a large revision is coming: we’re going to revise and update every theme by the end of 2011.
