How do I change the background color of the default home page?

    Please learn CSS first. Go to w3schools.com and give a thought on CSS.

Go to your ftp and open skin/frontend/your_theme_pack/your_theme/css/styles.css file and find something like:


Change any color/image here and save file.

Make sure changed file is uploaded/replaced in ftp.

If you only want to change home page background then add following line right after body{....} in your styles.css file:

body.cms-index-index{background:....;} (in your case cms-index-index might be different)

Hope this will help.


Just go to cpanel and in styles.css under skin folder goto frontend and your theme and then css-> open styles.css and in body class write background-color:.... whatever color you want.
Some themes providing custom css options there you can also write.
