    Hi,

    I just subscribed the Premium Memebershi and here comes the first question 😉

    I want to colour the right coloumn in “Celestial Reloaded”. Where can I change the background of the column? I tried with the lite version and the only place I found (in the widget area) was to colour the background of the widgets (not of the column).

    Thanks for your help
    Tom

    Unfortunately that is a very difficult thing to do to have it go all the way to the bottom (the full height of the column). The only theme that does that is my Luminescence, because it uses a jQuery script as well some css to achieve that result. In the world of HTML, 100% height is not possible without something to force it, such as scripts….or really creative css div structures. The only other method (which would be kind of complicated is to have a background image repeating down the side of the container for the content area….easier said than done though.

    Thank you.

    And the possibilty, that only the space is coloured wich is filled with widgets? I used that version in “Encounters”:

    
    #right-column {
    background-color: #E5DABE;
    border-radius: 5px 5px 5px 5px;
    padding: 8px;
    -webkit-box-shadow: 1px 2px 5px 0px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2); /* WebKit */
    -moz-box-shadow: 1px 2px 5px 0px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2); /* Firefox */
    box-shadow: 1px 2px 5px 0px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2); /* Standard */ 
    }
    

    Something in that way would fit. Any idea?

    Kind regards
    Tom
    P.S. The reason is, that my client needs a somehow highlighted section, where important & up-to-date news should be published.

    It would pretty much be the same idea and method that you presented.

    Where do I need to change the code? I could not find the right place. Or is it to complicated to implement into the theme “on the fly”? Right?

    Sometimes my English leaves me high and dry to understand everything. :blush:

    Hopefully in a child theme’s style.css file if you are using it for this, otherwise use a CSS editing plugin (a plugin hat lets you edit css). Either method so when there are theme updates, you don’t lose that modification.

    I am always using a child theme (… since I had double work and a lot of trouble).

    Thanks for your info & help. It is working.
