    I could well be missing something here but I’ve search these forums and also online.

    I’d like to work out how to change the colour of my pages – I don’t mean the background, I mean the main area of the screen that displays text!

    Please, somebody, tell me it’s easy ;)

    #container {
      background: #FFFFFF;
    }

    Thank you so much!

    It was very simple – although finding that answer just wasn’t easy at all (of course it was once I remembered to ask here!).

    Would you consider making this an option in future updates?

    I know I’m not the only one who has struggled with it because I searched for hours on various WP forums.

    No, this type of customization is definitely meant for CSS.

    If we added an option for every possible way to customize something we’d have a very bloated theme on our hands, messy overkill options and simply put, where would it end?

    I think once most people get used to CSS they come to enjoy the flexibility.

    Here’s the CSS trick:

    #container {
      background: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.5);
    }

    0.5 is 50% and 0.7 would be 70%.

    Thanks! Works great.

    Got another issue.. I want the background of my posts like an postcard with photo of the writer and a black square with the publishing date..

    Something like this example http://www.vanvondeltxt.nl/blog

    The background of the page needs to be transparent.

    Thanks again..

    Thanks, can be a usefull plugin, but is not really what i meant..

    Results of my posts page http://ditwordtmijnsite.nl/vvtxt/blog/ (background of the posts is still transparent)
    Result of a single post http://ditwordtmijnsite.nl/vvtxt/uncategorized/123/

    And what i need on the posts page is would be something like this http://www.vanvondeltxt.nl/blog

    Looking forward to your solution!

    Give this a try:

    .post {
      background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #FFFFFF;
      border-bottom: 0 none;
      margin: 20px 0 0;
      padding: 1px 20px 20px;
    }
