    I am trying to make the background color for my pages and posts black and have white text instead.

    I have tried creating css body background tags, but it interprets it as the boxed content color, same thing goes for the Styling in the template section.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!



    Hi parialambina,

    Can you point out with a screenshot exactly which sections you are trying to give the black background color to? I want to make sure we are talking about the same sections and give out the right css.




    Hi Devin,

    I’m not sure how to upload a screenshot on here but the url is

    Its the front page, you’ll see a teal color in the “body background”. So I’m trying to get the part that is white black and get the text white, if possible including the menus. This front page is classified as a page (versus a post).



    Add following code to css/custom.css (quick css will not work):

    #wrap_all, #main {
    background: #000;

    body {
    color: #fff;

    This will convert the body color to black. The menu will be white though – I’m not sure if it’s a good idea to change the menu color for two reasons:

    1) It’s hard to read for the user

    2) The menu uses graphics which will not look good if you’re using a black bg.


    Thanks so much!

    I have tried to find the custom.css several times but I have yet to find it.

    Could you provide a step-by-step way on how to find it in wordpress? Or refer me to an article that does so?




    you need to use a ftp client like Filezilla to access the css directory. Connect to your server and navigate to wp-content/themes/abundance/css/ and download the custom.css file. Then edit it and upload the new, modified version.


    Does Replete have a boxed layout? I ask because your demo theme is stretched layout and I don’t see anything in the features section of the demo anything about a boxed layout. I really wish I had known about Replete before purchasing Abundance and Propulsion themes.



    Yes sure, i.e. visit the “boxed wood” style demo page:

    Best regards,
