I have been editing the child theme, have got part way to what I want to do, purely by trial and error  over the last few days

1.  Does anyone know if there is a way to make all the content (text, header, widgits, sidebars, blog) areas the same background colour without having to find and edit them individually

2.  How do you change the width of the footer to match the content areas

edit to add
3 - How do you make everything on the front page the same width ?

4.  How can I either widen the blog area or centre it?

I'll give this a shot:

1) Not really with regular CSS. (that I know of...)

2) This is a bit tricky because the main content area has different "states" depending on the width of the browser/screen so when you adjust it, it has to mirror all the adjustments that the .container class goes through.  These are found in the bootstrap.css.

3) Not quite sure what you mean on this one, can you clarify a bit?  Which homepage template are you using and do you want it all to be full width?

4) This can also be controlled by the page template you choose for your blog page, are you using one with a side bar currently?

Thanks 9lives

1.  Have mostly sorted this I think, getting there anyway

2.  Will have a look at the bootstrap.css

3.  If you look at my home page the header and featured images are a couple of pixels narrower than the main content area - using the cta theme

4.  The template choices are standard and aside - they seem to look the same,

I think I am just going to have to accept that the footer stretches the whole page.  I don't understand enough to change, have tried various things recommended on editing sites but nothing worked  :(
