Hi Lisa,

Can you please share your site address so we can take a look? Is the gray background something you are seeing in your Sitebuilder, in your preview, in your published site or all three?

Hi Lisa,

Do you think there are there any widgets that you may have put on there to do that? If this happens, just click "Change background" right under the page list.

If your style does not support this, can you let me know your style then? You can also change the background yourself with some CSS so if you need to do that let me know.

To make it stop turning grey, try this:

1. Drag and drop an HTML widget to your page.

2. Then, a box will pop up.

3. Paste this in:


<style type="text/css">

body {



Do not copy <!-- or --> Just the code in between those.

This is some CSS that should change the background color of the page.

You can change "white" to what you want. (Like red, black, green, etc.)

Please let me know if this works.

Hope this helps!
