I'm in no way a designer but have always found my way around editing/adding and modifying existing templates but I'm having some ****ty issues with Joomla, worst CMS ever built, I'd burn it if I could.

I'm trying to implement a background to the white background here: http://lucasgomez.com/joomla

Using body bg will just replace the current header, so that's not an option. I know the image of products has a white bg and the tiles of the news title and what not also have bg's that will overlay the background added to the white part.

Help is greatly appreciated.

After looking at how the html is laid out part of the problem with doing this is going to be that the header has the white as part of it, it's not all enclosed in one div.

The one that has that background though div#content, part of the problem though why your background isn't showing is how the divs are floated on the page, as far as the web browser is concerned the #content div has a height of 0, so it really isn't showing anything. I used the inspect element feature of chrome to find these, I highly recommend this as it makes it much easier to find stuff like that.

One thing you can try is after the colmain div put in this: <div class="clear"></div> That should stretch out the content div.
