    Hi there!
    I’d like to know how you could change the color of the ‘blog box’; where you type in all the text. I want to change it from white to an ‘off-white’/cream color.

    Thanks in advance!

    The blog I need help with is censoredsands.com

    Also, how do I get rid of that link on the top with ‘Censored Sands’ written on it and change that to an image/logo instead?

    Hello!

    I’d like to know how you could change the color of the ‘blog box’; where you type in all the text.

    This is confusing. :) Can you tell me exactly where you’re referring to? Do you mean this? Or this?

    Also, how do I get rid of that link on the top with ‘Censored Sands’ written on it and change that to an image/logo instead?

    You would need to do this with Custom CSS (for example, something like the following):

    #site-title a {

    background: url( 'http://path/to/your/image.jpg' ) no-repeat;

    display: block;

    width: 63px;

    height: 200px;

    text-indent: -9999px;

    }

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Philip!

    Thanks so much for your reply.

    But let me try to explain again:

    I’d like the entire selected area (that is white) to change color.

    And for the 2nd part:

    I’d like to replace the selected area with any image/logo (that I have on my computer)

    Here are the codes:

    (I’m not sure where I should put the codes you’re going to give)

    Could you also please explain how I could get rid of the ‘Home’ box?

    Thanks!

    Hi again. The two URLs that you’ve given me do not show me anything:

    They send me here: http://www.myupload.org/ia/hugedrive125x125.gif

    Could you also please explain how I could get rid of the ‘Home’ box?

    Go to Dashboard → Appearance → Menus and set a Custom Menu in order to remove that Home link from your navigation bar. Hope that helps.

    No worries. :) And what about the first issue that I mentioned? What color would you like to change?

    This was what I was referring to earlier: http://censoredsands.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/whilearea2.png

    Basically, I’d like to change the color from white to off-white.

    Ah! Okay, that makes sense. Thank you.

    You could change that with something like this:

    article.hentry { background-color: #fffaf0; }

    Hope that helps!
