    Hi Jamie,
    I am struggling with a small issue,
    I have a blog page on my site that I’ve built along with the rest with page builder, in my reading settings i set posts to blog page, when i view blog page the posts are there but the background is black.
    is there any way i can change this so its the same as other pages,I’ve tried to edit the page with the page customiser but to no avail
    thanks in advance Fionn.

    Hi Fionn,

    I’m guessing you have set the site background colour to black – or are using some custom css ?

    ps the site looks great :)

    Hi Jamie, thanks.
    im not using any custom css.
    in reading settings i have checked ‘a static page'(select below)
    front page is set to home
    post page is set to -select- my blog page looks the same as all my other pages
    when i set posts page to blog from the drop down menu my blog page then displays lists of posts on black background, hope you can help

    Hi Fionn,

    I just taken a quick look and found out what’s happening :)

    It’s because you’ve set the background color of your site to black. Found in Canvas, Styling and layout, Background color.

    Hi Jamie thanks for that,i tried adding the same background image as i have done in the page customiser but i cannot get it to cover, only repeat x and y, is there any way i can make the image cover the page like my other pages
    thanks Fionn.

    Have you set the background image to the cover setting?

    Hi Fionn,

    Yep you are quite right :)

    The only way to do this I think would be to add it in custom.css,

    Hi again sorry to be a pest, but just to confirm, i can use the page customiser to customise a post, but if i want a blog page in my menu to list the posts, then the customiser won’t work, i have to use custom css. Is this correct, if so will you be updating the plugin so it will work on a blog menu page.
    thanks Fionn

    Hi Fionn,

    You can create a page and pull posts into it with PageBuilder. Here’s a tutorial http://jamiemarsland.wpengine.com/2014/06/video-tutorial-create-magazine-layout-like-new-york-times-website/.

    This creates a very complex blog page – but you can use the same concept for a simple one :)
