Hi Casey,

Is it possible to change the background colour of the onyx template to white? If so I’d be very grateful if you would let me know how? Thanks.

Yes, assuming you’re already using one of the light styles such as style5, you’d edit style5.css (appearance → editor → style5.css) and change:

body {
 color: #4d4d4d;
 background: #dedede url(./images/style5/page_bg.png) repeat 0 top;
}

to:

body {
 color: #4d4d4d;
 background: #fff;
}

After that, you’ll notice some of the background images still lay over the former background color. If you have Photoshop or Fireworks, you would edit the source files (included in your download) and export the slices and upload to the wp-content/themes/images/style5 folder.

Here’s a quick video walkthrough a put together for how you’d do it in Fireworks (recommended).
