How can userpages be given a background color or picture (i.e. on Wookieepedia)? And does HTML work in the editing (again, primarily for the userpage)? --Exp.Fl.Cmndr. Mitth'raw'nuruodo 19:04, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

In MediaWiki:Monobook.css you can change the colors for a specific namespace with body.ns-###. Just use CSS like normal. You use wikitext not specificly HTML read the help at Meta. Dantman (Talk) 20:20, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

body.ns-2 { background-color: #eeffee }

I also have a similar problem, and I'm stuck in an earlier point - how do I find the Monobook.css file in my Wikia? (MediaWiki:Monobook.css is locked for editing) --Erel Segal 06:25, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

That is the correct location, but only the sysops on a wiki can edit it. --Splarka (talk) 06:30, 8 December 2006 (UTC)
Every logged-in user also has their own Monobook.css file: User:EXAMPLE/monobook.css. --lE☺N2323 21:02, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

Or you can go in to some painting program (MS Paint for instance), and pick a color. Then, write:

body.ns-2 { background-color: rgb(42,13,37) }

Replace 42 wit amount of red, 13 with amt. of green, 37 with amt. of blue. So rgb(255,0,0) would give you plain red. Smiddle Smiddle 13:50, 14 December 2006 (UTC)
