Changing background color of right sidebar and footer

    Hi,

    I’m trying to figure out how to change the background of the right sidebar and footer on my site to white? Is that possible on the Alyeska theme? I’ve tried using Firebug to determine how but not really able to determine exactly where to make the changes. Admittedly I’m not a CSS goddess. It looks like there are a couple .css stylesheets going with this theme.
    I know I should probably use the custom.css sheet but not sure what code to use. Any help greatly appreciated!

    Here’s the site I’m working on: http://goldenretrieverwebsite.com/

    Thanks,

    Melissa

    Hello Melissa,

    You don’t need to use Firebug to find some sort of styles that are already written for you, but you just need to find the elements you want to change, make sure they’re not being styled already, and look at the HTML markup to determine your own selectors to use in styling them.

    So, if something has class “abc” then you style it like .abc { ... } or if something you want to target has ID “xyz” then you style it like #xyz { ... }.

    It looks like you’ve already targeted the bottom the way you want. For the sidebar, this might help you get started:

    .sidebar_right .fixed-sidebar { background: #fff; }
