Please can you advise me if there is an easy way to change the background color of the basic web site - like you change from light to dark - can I specify a color to use as the background?
I assume I must change the html - but where?
site: www.iqela.co.za
Thanks

I suppose if I make the changes in "light.css" that would give me an alternative background color.
Seems obvious!

By changing the light.css I change the headings bars from black background with two toned titles - to white background and black text which I do not want. I want the same title bars as in the dark template - is this possible?

Hello,

I am not sure I understand exactly what you are trying to do but the background is called on template.css at the top under body {

body {
background:url("../images/s5_header_bg.png") repeat-x scroll left top #191A1B;
color:#333333;
font-family:verdana;
}

The background call has a background color and image. The image makes up the header area and the color covers the areas that the header image does not.
