Id like to change the main background color outside of the body or content area. The body, header, footer and content areas are all white and Id like the outer areas of screen to be a contrasting color. I tried using firebug to see where to edit in css but no bounding box or info is displayed. I know its a basic question but it has me stumped.


I assume you are asking about your Joomla template and nothing whatsoever to do with VirtueMart?

Just look at the divs making up the template and work out which ones need a color applied.
eg.:  #header {
    background-color: #cccccc;

If you cannot work it out with Firebug then maybe you should ask the supplier of your template.

I finally figured it out. Think I need to step away for a few minutes. Thank you for the quick reply Jenkinhill.
