Change Background Color

As shown in the examples below, your website can have either a khaki or white colored background in the main content area. By default, new websites come with a khaki background.

Background Color

Background color is a site-wide element and cannot be changed on a page-by-page basis. You can change the background color through the site-config page in the _internal folder of your website.

  1. Select _internal > site-config > site-config in the folder structure and then click the Edit tab.

  2. Locate the site-config section. Select white or khaki for Content area background.

  3. Click Submit to save.

Note: The site-config page does not need to be published, however you will need to do a site-wide publish to make sure every page gets updated on the live site. Site-wide publishes should be done outside of regular business hours (before 9am and after 5pm).
