I haven't found this question/answer recently, assistance greatly appreciated.

I am creating a mirror of some pages from another website, and they have a nice boring white background with black type, LOL. I need to change the background and font colors - and the font size while i'm at it - for individual galleries.

Here's a gallery I need to change:

UPDATE: I fixed the link

    Looks like you should have used a page instead of a gallery. Anyway, you probably already made that Gallery by "Make This Gallery Custom", so add a CSS block and add this:

    /**
    * Styling for Biography Page
    ************************************************/
    .sm-user-ui,
    html.sm-user-ui {background-color: #fff;}
    
    .sm-user-ui,
    .sm-user-ui h1,
    .sm-user-ui h2,
    html.sm-user-ui,
    .sm-user-ui .sm-tile-info {color: #000;}
    

    You used Text Blocks, so you'll have to edit each block to change the font size.

    Hi, this works great, and I used the 'Just This Gallery >> THEME' to change the background color for the header and footer.

    TANGENT: What is the advantage of a page over a gallery?

    I'm not used to using pages. I was originally frustrated by not being able to specify the order of folders, galleries and pages in CUSTOMIZE, and have the ORDER show up as arranged (rather than FOLDER/GALLERY/PAGE). Changing this with CSS turns the physical into the logical, and once you go down that path..... LOL, can illogical gremlins be far behind?

    Thanks much, as always!

    Gallery is just collection of photos. A page is more like a web page, with both text and pictures.
