    Anybody know how to change the background color of the Club form?  I changed everything that I could find in the .CSS, and nothing changed.

    Go to App_Themes folder , and change  the body styles insdide  clubsite.css  

    this is what you will find for the body ,

        font-family: Tahoma, Verdana, Helvetica, Helvetica-Narrow, sans-serif;
        margin: 0px;
        background: #FED36B url(images/background_main.jpg) repeat-y center top;
        font-size: 0.7em;


    you can also set the body styles inline , in masterpage file

    <body style=" background-color:#ccc; ">

    Thank you for the reply.  However, you must be looking at different version of the Club Starter Kit than I have.  I have the first one, not the Enhanced or the Codeplex version.  And, in the version that I have, you cannot get the color to change by changing the color code.  I was going to respond to my own question, today, because I have found the answer.  The background is made up of the images, not the color code.  So, I guess, you could delete the image part of the statement, or get an image that had the color that you wanted.  I do believe that the URL in this statement, is what causes the background to be what it is:  background: #FED36B url(images/background_main.jpg) repeat-y center top; You will find images for right, left, main, and maybe some others.  I am not sure why they did it that way, maybe someone can explain it for us.  I am not good with graphics, so not really sure how to correct the problem.  I think I will download some of the other starter kits and see if I can swap out some images.

    yes , that sets the background image , which is a slice image that is repeated vertically ( y - axis ) , this is how they avoid using a large images , they just take a slice from the original image and inform the browser to stretched it using the repeat-x and repeat-y attributes ....

    I've changed all the images in the image folder including. But i still can't get the left and right borders to change the color. What file should i be looking in? I've changed Main, LeftColumn, and RColumn. But the far sides are still popping up it's original yellow.


    Also. Any ideas as far as the columns that have content. I got a light border that seems somewhat yellow, it seemed to help if i changed the width of the div, but any real help would better my understanding.
