I dont know about v5 but in skin\common_files\css
you can see background-color: near the top. I am using 4.6.2 so as I said I dont know if its the same

Also if you use firefox you can get an addin called firebug thats a great help

In version 5, choose settings > look and feel > custom css.

Enter your background css for example;

Quote:
body {
background: #CCC;
}

Make sure the use custom css box is checked, and it will override the css in your store.

Ensure the url is pointing the the path of the image you have uploaded.

I used the above and it doesnt work. Putting in a color does. Rich did you get it working?

Hi Mark!

I just tested the CSS code you sent me via PM and it works properly to me. Could you please post the snapshot of the entire Custom CSS section?

Thank you.

There was something very strange going on. I had the hosting company restart the apache server process and now it works. I guess it was a cache or something. That really doesnt make sense to me, but its working and thats all that matters. Thank you!
