PageLines theme: how to change the background color of the main content vs. entire page?

I use PageLines free version, with WordPress 3.3.1, for this website: http://new.teleosis.org/?page_id=76

I want the background color of the whole page to be light green, and the background color of my content area to be white (typical design). It seems like a super simple thing to do - or so I expected.

  • I configure the overall background color in the PageLines settings as such: screenshot

  • But I don't find the setting to change the page-content background color, is it even available in PageLines?

I hope I don't have to go into the CSS files for such a simple thing, but if I do, I appreciate any suggestions to do that too.

Yes, you will need to go into the CSS - this question should be on StackOverflow or Stack for Wordpress. Is it the blue footer you want to change or something else? – toomanyairmiles Mar 1 '12 at 20:11
I didn't see there was a Wordpress site. You're right, I'll go there, thanks. What I want to change is the color of the main content, see here ow.ly/9oAfa – Olivier Compagne Mar 1 '12 at 20:45

On line 367 of style.css you need to change

.mcolumn-pad {
   padding-top: 2em;


.mcolumn-pad {
   padding-top: 2em;
   background: #FFF;
