Change the site background color in WordPress

Note: If you have a premium WordPress theme, check the theme documentation on how to change the background color, because the following option might be locked.

You can change the background color of your site from the WordPress dashboard. To specify the background color, use a hex color code.

  1. Sign in to WordPress.
  2. From the left-hand menu, select Appearance > Customize.
  3. Select Additional CSS.
  4. Scroll down and then enter this code to change the background color:

            .site {
                background-color: #XXXXXX;

    where #XXXXXX is the hex color code you want to use.

    Additional CSS in WordPress Customizer
  5. Select Publish.
