Background color not showing in Firefox or Safari

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2013-12-16
I'm using NetObjects Fusion 8 to create a simple, 6-page web-site.
I can't get my overall background color to show in Firefox or Safari, even though I've added it to the CSS stylesheets -- and I can't find anywhere else in the Fusion HTML that's over-riding the CSS settings.
If someone is willing to take a look at my site's code, please tell me how best to "package" it for uploading here.
Thanks in advance.

Your body tag is showing STYLE="background-color: transparent; background-image: none;"

What happens if you change this to STYLE="background-color:#99ccff; background-image: none;"

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

The inline style overrides the body elements in the CSS.

Shonks is right.

How about taking out the background-color: transparent;

It seems to fix it.



The transparent setting is done somewhere in Fusion (I can't find where), and it won't let me change that part of the auto-generated html directly.  I just tried inserting background-color: #99ccff; in the part of the Body tag where Fusion allows me to edit, but Fusion just RETAINS the "transparent" setting and ADDS my insertion -- with no change to the appearance of the site.
So I need to find out where Fusion gets the transparent setting (it's not in the css files) and/or how to change it in the "protected" area of the auto-generated html.
PS: Thanks, Shonk, for your help!
You will have to edit the pagee in NetObjects. There should be a place to select edit page .

Kindly try and let us know what happens eventually



Hi Shonk & MyDerrick,
I had to edit the auto-generated html in FrontPage, then FTP the files to the site host -- without opening the site in Fusion again (because Fusion ignores my edits to its auto-generated html).
So it's an annoying but simple workaround that I'll have to do each time I change the site.
Lesson learned: check the auto-generated html, not only the css files (which is what I did originally).
Many thanks to you both!
