Hi,

If you created the skin using Artisteer, move the contents of the body{} selector in style.css to the .pagebody{} selector in style-artisteer-overrides.css.

Thanks,
Joe

Re: background color of editor

Hi Joe, this reminded me of something. Of all the steps in your Creating Artisteer Skins document, this particular step (#7) took me the longest to grasp. Now that I've got it all straight in my mind, I wanted to propose alternate instructions for that step that might make it clearer for others too:

Generally, you will want the WYSIWYG editor windows to be styled as black text on a white background. However, the Artisteer export places color, background-color, and background-image in the body {} selector in style.css, which causes them to be applied to both the site and editor. To fix the editor, create overrides in style-artisteer-overrides.css like this: body{color: black; background-color: white; background-image: none; }, then copy the corresponding Artisteer body{} styles from style.css into the body.pagebody{} selector in style-artisteer-overrides.css.

Hi Jamie,

Your proposed instructions sound good to me. I'll make the change.

Thanks!
