    Hey all -- was hoping that someone could clue me in on a total n00b CSS issue:

    I'm trying to customize the Random Image Theme for Wordpress, and I'm running into a small -- but *incredibly annoying* -- problem.

    I'm trying to make the background of the content area white. The background of navigation column that runs down the right side is not plain white (FFFFFF). Rather Photoshop's color picker claims that it's F9F9F9 -- but this isn't anywhere in the style.css file. There is a .alt that has a background set at F8F8F8, but when I change that to FFFFFF, it doesn't help.

    Where is that shading coming from?

    You seem to have answered your own question, but in case you're still in the dark, this line of code is causing the problem:

    body { background: url("http://managedtasks.com/wpthemes/blog/wp-content/themes/random-image/images/kubrickbgcolor.jpg"); }

    However, note that it isn't found in the style.css file, it's found in Kubrick (or your current theme which is derived from Kubrick)'s header.php file (most likely). Go into that file and remove that line, or change the image and take away the shading

    Note: It might also be in the index.php file... Either way, it's in one of the template files...

    I remember this from a while back... but it's been a while since I last modified the default Wordpress theme

    Ahhh.

    Thanks, all -- somehow it never occurred to me that they had built a shade into the image!

    I assumed that it was the background color of the sidebar column.

    Well, thanks much -- I feel better to know that (a) I'm not crazy thinking it wasn't in the CSS, and (b) where the rub is.

    Now to fix!

    Thx again :)
