How do I make this background black or use a repeating image?

Posted on 2013-12-09

I have a site here:

I need to make the background black behind the large image/slideshow at the top.

But I cannot figure out what container it is using for that.

I've attached a screenshot of what I need.

Any help is appreciated.

The container for that section is the rt-navigation div.  It's background color is currently being styled by this declaration.

#rt-header, #rt-top, #rt-navigation {background:#ffffff;}

Open in new window

If you'd like to change the background color to black, remove #rt-navigation from the above declaration and add in a new declaration for only #rt-navigation.

#rt-navigation {background-color:#000;}

Open in new window

Yes, forgot to include that.  The original declaration was in the embedded styles for that page.

Those aren't in a css file - they are part of the page itself.

ok, I still have to hunt this down as that code is dynamically generated by something.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
