Hi there, sorry for the topic spam. I'm nearly finished customising promise!

I am adapting a theme I haven't created myself as my CSS is a little rusty but I'm having an issue with the background and page alignment after its been through the SS engine.

I have tested this site before it goes through, in the zip below you can see a picture of how its supposed to look and how it actually looks.

I know its a little cheeky to ask but can anyone think of why this alignment and background are being removed by silverstripe?

[Please find attached, theres a picture and the full theme in there in case you want to test/review it]

Just a final note: sorry its all in general.css while i'm testing (i prefer it in one) but will spread them out when its done ^^

Thanks in advance for any help that can be given!

update, got the center sorted using text-align: center; in the CSS however for some strange reason its taking my background-color: #000000; as background-color= "really annoying blue"; can anyone give any hints as to why its shooting out such a bright blue instead of black please?

Have you installed Firebug for firefox? Really useful plugin and should help you debug the background issue.
