Hi

I am the treasurer of a new charity, we had a website set up, but now have no one to run/amend it, so I volunteered. I have decided to have a go at creating a new website using Coffee Cup, as the previous person had used another program, which I cannot get hold of. So far I have set up the pages I want, using the "new from theme/layout" option on the File page . I have managed to change the font and colour of the text for each of the headers, titles and navigation titles. I have worked out how to do the navigation links and added the new ones that I want. I have managed to add a photo/logo.

My problem is the background colour of each page, which is white. How do I change the background colour of every page to something more interesting?

I also want to add links to documents that are stored on my computer? ie newsletters, constitution, etc. Where do I save them? and what format do they need to be in, as they are currently word doc's

thank you

Lisa

In your CSS file or at your page style section you would have body tag something as follow:
body {

}

if you need to change background color all you need to add is this :
body {
background-color: #116caa;
}

And if you need to add image as background then you need something as follow:

body {
background-image: url('../images/background.png');
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-size: cover;
background-position: center center;
}

Maybe you can create button and link it to your local files and possibly pdf format will be fine and that depends your requirement in your side.

Guys at coffeecup are awesometacular.
