Change your contents background colour


Google Sites does not offer customisation to the content colour background of individual pages on your site, so, here is a quirky work around for you...

Go to your chosen page, ready for it's makeover! Click in the content area > Click on edit > html > copy and paste the code below into the html, make sure it's the very first line > remember to save your changes!

<div style="background-color:#C0C0C0; padding:3px;">

For a range of colours look at the wicked wiki link below ... be sure to use the hex codes ... Simply replace my chosen colour's digits C0C0C0 with your six digit hex code, make sure you leave the # and the rest of the code in tact.

Please do comment in here a link to the pages you have made over with this trick! I look forward to seeing them!

Enjoy x

  9. Thanks Becky - worked a treat. Just need to figure out how to change the colour in the last remain elements of the template...

  10. it changes the text background not the screen background

  11. Worked great for me on a Google Apps site. My site has a black background. When I added the the Comments function, which entails using a Spreadsheet and Spreadsheet form, I ended up with black text on black background. I didn't find an easy way to change the text color, so looked for a way to change the background. Yours worked great. To see it, look at the bottom of:

  12. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

    I'm as design-stupid as you can be and this code saved me. I have to design a website for this research project and this is great. Thanks!

  13. Thank you so much! This was an awesome find! I used it to colour pages that were in an Archived Policies section for a non-profit intranet. I initially tried to make an "Archive Page" page template with the background colour div, but it put colour background after every
    so ended up with lots of repeating code. So instead I copy-pasted the code into the HTML section like you advised. Would have been nice if Google Sites let you style it all with a page template, but your solution still worked a treat.

  14. I think when comparing the benefits of Buying vs. Leasing solar panel installations for your home it is much better to lease them. Maybe writing services can help with that.
