Sometimes websites look too boring without colors and uniform and you want to try something new. But its really hard to play with the design unless you good at coding or got some skills to play around. In this post I am going to show you how to set a background color or a background image for your website pretty easily.
All you need to do is install the full width/full page background slider plugin. Now click on the FWB slider option in the left hand panel and you will see the settings for the FWB slider. This plugin allows you to add a full width background slider to your website. But we dont need image here rather we want to change the website color. So first of all delete all the values in the FWB slide Value text box.
There is one checkbox saying ” Check it, if you want to use background color instead of slider”. Check the check box and select the color you want to set for your background. Press update and you are done. You have added a background color to your website.
I remember I said you can have different color for each page/post. Yes!!! you can. You will see a panel under each post and page with the same options and you can set the background color their for that post or page. Its pretty simple. I am sure you will love this free plugin and make your website more colorful.
