    Default Cannot change color category heads

    Hi,
    I changed the color of the category headers (headers on left, right, and middle) to white, but now cannot change them back again. What have I done?Is there something that I changed in the meantime that I am unaware of?

    Using "mostly gray" template.
    Thanks!

    open your stylesheet.css and locate this rule
    add the code in red to this rule . change to your own colour

    .leftBoxHeading, .centerBoxHeading, .rightBoxHeading {stylesheet.css (line 585)
    background-color:green;
    border-bottom:1px solid #222222;
    font-size:18px;
    font-weight:normal;
    padding:3px;
    }
    if you don't want solid colour , you can add image for the background by using
    background-image:url ( location to the image ) ;

    hope this is what you been looking for

    That works-- thanks.

    That is the rule I thought had control. My backgound-color was at the end like this--

    .leftBoxHeading, .centerBoxHeading, .rightBoxHeading {
    background-color: #dcc766;
    padding: 3px;
    font-weight: normal;
    font-size: 18px;
    border-bottom: 1px solid #222;

    was my placement what was causing my problem (because, I have some other problems ...)

    Sorry, I still have my color problem.

    Changed width back to 990px and the color bars (headers) went away...

    code block for background color is a correct one for what you wanted. this code is no longer in your stylesheet . possibly , was removed by you or is been saved into another copy of your stylesheet.

    thats something you have to look into it , to figure what may have gone wrong with your file.

    no, the code in post #5 is exactly as it is in my stylesheet just now.

    my template was originally set for 99% and I changed it to 990px-- is this something that can make things go wonko? did I miss something?

    You have CSS parsing errors due to the way you applied comments
    .leftBoxHeading, .centerBoxHeading, .rightBoxHeading {<!-- controls all headings-->


    causing parsing error. this is not correct way of commenting CSS as far as i know
