Just wondering, I'm using style 'swanky' and I'd like to change the color from black in the header, how do I do that? Is there a way to edit CSS? If there isn't a way I think there should be some further customization options! It would make the site a little more customization-friendly. (Just a thought!)

Hi there,

Unfortunately you can't edit the background colour of the header on that particular style.

We do have other styles where you can change the background color, some even with your own image. These are the one's that have that feature:
1. Tastelessly
2. CleanSlate
3. BareNecessities
4. NoFrills
5. SqueakyClean

These styles can be found in the first 10 of the style selection (click on 'Change Style' to see the style selection).

To change your background on your page, follow these steps:
1. Click on the "Properties" tab on the sidebar on the right.
2. At the bottom of the "Properties tab", under "Background image" click on the three dots (...) to choose or upload an image.
3. Click on "OK" and the image will be added as a background to your page.

Please note that the background will apply to that specific page and not to the whole site. To remove the background image, follow the same steps above and click on the 'None' button in the image selector dialog box that opens.

Please let us know if you need any other help.

Hello Keyshon,

Thank you for your message. I have applied the CleanSlate style to my personal site and am sharing a screenshot with you of where I see the option to change my background:

If this is not what you are seeing, can you please share a screenshot with us? We will be glad to look further into this situation for you.

Cheers!
