Very noob question but I need help on how to change background color - Makedx - 2017-01-27

How do I change background to image or color?

My current global.css is

body {
    background-color: #000000;
	color: #000000;
	text-align: center;
	line-height: 1.4;
	margin: 0;
	font-family: Tahoma, Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;
	font-size: 13px;
	overflow-y: scroll;
}


#container background: color: #000000;
	color: #000000;
	text-align: left;
	line-height: 1.4;
	margin: 0;
	font-family: Tahoma, Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;
	font-size: 13px;
	min-width: 990px;
}


I wanted to make it black but it doesn't seem to be working.

Also when I tried to source an image from /images it didn't work either.

Thank you for any help!

Choose you colour, and find out it's hex colour code. It will begin with # .Replace the bolded text with your choice of hex colour code.

Hi I have just doen it and seen no change.

I think my problem is, when I come to update something, for some reason it takes forever for something to change. It changes in the system but takes a bit to reflect in the forum. I tried the "force theme on users" option and still no.

Thank you Meetdilip.
My issue is, I update things in the .css
and for some reason, everything went center? why?

my whole forum is now centered and looks weird

If you use Cloudflare, changes you do won't effect the actual site unless you clean the cache.
That might be the reason you don't see any change.

And honestly don't pay anyone for that kind of simple stuff.

Hi Darkrad,

I'm not using cloudflare. In any case, it may appear to be simple but I keep running into error after error. I'm not good with this kind of stuff.

But there does seem to be a delay, in that I don't know what creates or doesn't create changes until many minutes later when it takes place.

In short, I am just fed up and would like someone with knowledge to fix it, rather than me destroying the CSS code even further.
