Hello, new to posting here, playing around with user choice template and getting to grips with
what colours can and cannot be changed through the edit-template option.
Its a template layout I've been after for ages.

I am looking to see if its possible to change the default background colour/gradient/image file
with my own. I'm familiar with photoshop and creating gifs and png's etc.

I've discovered by replacing userchoice/images/light:

..its a start in the right direction for me, but I'm really wondering what file is controlling the main "background"
image or colour below the s5_main_bg.jpg section.

Hope I've explained what I'm trying to do  Cheesy

thanks for your help - great site !

Hi, in the file light.css look for:

body  {
     font-size: 76%;
     background: #ffffff;
     font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; }

The background line is what makes up the rest of the background color. You'd have to change the ffffff to another color that mataches your images.
