I'm trying to set the background-color for a community (gotham_newsies).

The background I want actually does work when looking at the entry URL (permalink), but when looking at Recent Entries, there's a dark 'box' area in the sidebar (near the bottom). When looking at the Friends View, the entire sidebar area is the wrong/dark color.

Here's my CSS code:


/* to add header */
#header-inner {
background: url(http://pics.livejournal.com/jack_cowboy/pic/00006ktd) center top no-repeat; height:270px; margin-top: 60px; margin-bottom: 20px;
}

/* to eliminate any other header */
#header, #header-content {
background-image: none;
}

/* dump the journal name */
#header-name, #header-description {
display: none;
}

/* move header navigation */
#header-text
{display: none; }

#header {
position: static; /* fixes positioning issue on IE where header content displays outside #header-content */
}

/* this color is dark blue #17213a */

/* change background color */
body, #beta, #beta-inner, #page-inner, #header, #footer, .asset-name-hover, .asset-body, .asset-content, #container, #footer-ad
{ color: #ffffff; background-color: #17213a; }

/* remove header border */
#header
{border: none;}

/* sidebar LINKS change color */
a,
.widget a,
.archive-widget, .widget-list, .item, .widget-header, .widget-header a
{ font-size: 13px; color: #7181ce; }

/* keep link underlining on hover */
body a:hover,
{ text-decoration: underline; }

/* this changes the links for edit entry etc. */
.asset-tags-list,
.asset-tags-add-tags:link,
.asset-meta,
.asset-meta-list,
.asset-meta-list a,
{ color: #7181ce; }

/* this makes link change color on hover */
a:hover,
.asset-meta-list a:hover,
.widget a:hover,
.widget-header a:hover,
.asset-tags-list a:hover
{ background-color: #ffffff; }

/* color change for subject line, date, etc. */
.asset-name,
.asset-name a,
.asset-stream-list, .post-asset,
.asset-meta-list .item
{ color: #7181ce; }

.asset-name a:hover
{ background-color: #ffffff; }

.widget-header
{ border-width: 0 0 2px 0; border-color: #7181ce; }

.widget-header,
.widget-header a
{ font-size: 15px; font-weight:bold; }

.asset-name a,
{ font-size: 20px; font-weight:bold; }



In this case, I'm using Expressive DJ (Designed by Gilbert Rizo). I've tried checking over the stylesheet, but I'm stumped (again).

Thanks for any and all help!

The dark box on the recent page is an image. I *think* you could get rid of it writing the following:


.layout-tw #content-inner { background: transparent url() repeat-y scroll top left; }


And as for the friends page, I don't see anything different in the sidebar.

This is sufficient:
.layout-tw #content-inner { background-image: none;}

HA! Thanks, I'm stupid. Guess it was too early in the morning for me. XD

Thanks for offering help.

Both are displaying fine now.
