Thread: Changing website background. How's it done?

    Default Changing website background. How's it done?

    Hi Lynn and all Web Design Gurus,

    I want to change the look of my site by changing the background
    color from white to dark blue or black. Two questions. Should I do
    this? I have not updated my site for awhile and want to make some
    noticable changes.

    And if its a good idea, how is it done? What's the best software or
    web site improvement tutorial out there? Also, I've seen some sites
    with custom images as the background. I'd love to learn how this
    is done as well.

    I use Dreamweaver 4 to edit my sites. Any help will be a blessing
    on this. Thanks

    Normally you just need access to your stylesheet. Find the hex code for the color you want to use. Go to your stylesheet and find background. Change the color


    If you want to use an image then you preferably it should not be too big and seamless to be repeated.

    Let me know if you need further help.

    If you don't use CSS on your site, just straight HTML, just go to Modify > Page Properties and change the background color. You'll have to do that per page, or you can grab the code and do a Find & Replace sitewide.
