CSS Background Color Not Showing


Tags: css,html5

Problem :

I have an HTML5 page built and the image is over-riding the background color in the entire page. I am trying to make the image show up in the background, while the background color shows up in the page that is on top of the background. Copy and paste my code to see for yourself. How do I fix this? Thank you in advance.

This is the index file:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">

<head>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="javajam.css">
    <title>JavaJam Coffee House</title>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">
</head>

<body>
<div id="wrapper">

<h1><img src="javalogo.gif" alt="JavaJam Logo" width="619" height="117"></h1>

<div id="nav">
    <a href="index.html">Home</a>&nbsp;
    <a href="menu.html">Menu</a>&nbsp;
    <a href="music.html">Music</a>&nbsp;
    <a href="jobs.html">Jobs</a>
</div>

<div id="content">

<img src="windingroad.jpg" alt="Winding Road" width="333" height="156" align="right">

<ul>
    <li>Specialty Coffee and Tea</li>
    <li>Bagels, Muffins, and Organic Snacks</li>
    <li>Music and Poetry Readings</li>
    <li>Open Mic Night</li>
</ul>

<div>
    12312 Main Street<br>
    Mountain Home, CA 93923<br>
    1-888-555-5555
</div>

<br>
</div>
<div id="footer">
    Copyright &copy; 2013 JavaJam Coffee House<br>
    <a href="mailto:zhawkins9468@gmail.com">zhawkins9468@gmail.com</a>
</div>
</div>
</body>
</html>    

And this is the CSS:

body { background-color: #FFFFCC;
      color: #330000;
      font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif; 
      background-image: url(background.gif); }

h1 { background-color: #CCAA66;
    color: #000000;
    text-align: center; }

h2 { background-color: #CCAA66;
    font-size: 1.2em;
    padding-left: 10px;
    padding-bottom: 5px; }

img { border: none; }

#nav { text-align: center; }

#footer { background-color: #CCAA66;
         color: #000000;
         font-size: .60em;
         font-style: italic;
         text-align: center; 
         padding: 10px; }

#wrapper { background-color: ffffcc;
           width: 80%;
           margin-left: auto;
           margin-right: auto; 
           min-width: 700px; 
           -webkit-box-shadow: 5px 5px 5px #1e1e1e; 
           -moz-box-shadow: 5px 5px 5px #1e1e1e;
           box-shadow: 5px 5px 5px #1e1e1e; }

#content { padding: 25px; }

.details { padding-left: 20%; 
           padding-right: 20%; }


Solution :

In the code you provided, Chrome's Inspector reports "ffffcc" as an invalid property value for background-color in the div #wrapper.

Adding the "#" in front of "ffffcc" makes the background-color valid, which would cause it to display correctly instead of the body background-image. Sorry if that doesn't fix the problem, but it's worth a try just in case.
