cannot change background color

Hi there,

Thanks for this good theme. Ive been trying to configure it the way I want but I have a problem changing the background color I had an old theme (constuctor) that I used to set the background color with. Now I change to your theme but still the background color stays the color I set in constructor. I tried body background setting -> body background color and Custom CSS, JavaScript & RSS -> custom styles but none works. Looks like something overrides it...

always I get the same grey background color

wordpress 2.8.6

Under Body Background Settings, at the very top is "Default or custom backgrounds for main body?", did you select "Custom Styles"?

Yeah that did it. Strangely enough the theme defaults you would expect to change also the background color, but ok this solves it.
thank you for your help.

Well, since there are 6 or so themes to select (meaning styles like light and dark), it would be the default for the background color, so then you'd select the custom to change that (among other things like updating the header section and whatnot).
