How in the world do you put a background color behind the text you want to enter on the home page, and other pages.

Probably easy, but

I can not even get the home page to update at all tonight. All I am trying to do is to add an image of an October calendar - similar to what I do EVERY month about this time. ?????????

Linda,
Yes, it is easy! Highlight the text you want to add a background color behind, and click the "A" box as shown in the attached screen snap.

This works fine if you are only trying to background color some text. If you want the whole area to have a background color, create a table and then right mouse within the cell of the table, click Cell, Cell Properties, and then "choose" in the background color option. Select the color you want, click OK and then OK again.

There are other ways to change background colors (of any element) that at times is useful - using CSS. For example to change the whole page background add this in source mode (color is a pale blue, but can be anything of course): This removes the use of a table to surround an area.

You can also use a graphic that fills the area (much like background image):

You can also just pick 'table' and control the color of those (or image). Applies to ALL the tables on that page (for this method). Below controls everything, but you could isolate all the cells and make them different, including borders.

Hope that will be useful. Easy to try out in source mode. Put at the front of page so it's easy to find.
