I installed the Simple Free theme and was wondering how I can change the medium plus background color to white. The page background color only changes the background behind the page content but I would like the entire page background to be whit. Any help as to which file I have to edit to change the blue?

Thank You

Hi Joseph!

You just need to customize your theme css.

Menu: appearance -> customize -> css

It will send you to the route: yourwebsite.com/admin/appearance/customize/css

Copy and paste this css code in the bottom textarea that says  "Edit CSS"

/* change background color*/

.ow_page_padding {

    background: #fff !important;


You can add any css in there to change your theme style.

You will want to apply the css to.

.ow_page_wrap {
    background-color: your color;
As SD said; just add the css to the custom css section in the admin panel for your theme.

Just out of curiosity. Most themes have a customize feature in the admin panel to allow you to change the background color there. admin / themes / customize.
