Seeing transparent background – not what I want

  • Hey folks

    I recently installed WordPressMU and BuddyPress along with a Theme and everything went ok no errors but when I check the “My Account” pages which I believe is part of the Buddy Press plugin, it looks ok but apparently the background is invisible and I can see right thru it to the dark background of my theme. Is there a way to edit maybe the buddy press css files in order to add a solid background color?

    My aim is to eliminate the transparent background that is letting my themes background show through when I am on any of the user account pages.

    If I disable BP Template Pack CSS I then loose my Admin/User Account bar.

    Hope I am making sense.

    Thanks
    Dave

    You can change the background color and/or image for wp-admin-bar by adding this to child theme’s style.css e.g.
    #wp-admin-bar .padder { background: #000000 url(“../images/black.jpg”) repeat-x ; }
    black background with an image file black to repeat horizontally – change/adjust according to taste

    Ok if you can please bare with me as I am not a css expert

    I went to my current theme’s folder style.css (only snippets shown below) in root and I added that line you recommend just below the body as seen here just to see the initial change but no changes took effect. I even tried the absolute url path and also removed the ../ before images to be sure just for experimentation but still no results. Actually the background is in the same dir so I assume images/contentwrap-background.png should have pointed correctly.

    body {
    background: #58254a url(images/background.png) top left repeat-x;
    }

    #wp-admin-bar .padder {
    background: #FFFFFF url(“../images/contentwrap-background.png”) repeat-x ;
    }

    Thanks
