Adding Background Color to a Space

Hi, I am trying to add a background color for a space, i am using version 5.3 and using IE 9 as browser. I look at the conlfuence guide and follow instruction and recommendation from the comments. I tried looking at the style sheet and put css codes to put a color and still nothing happens. Any suggestions how to do this. Thanks.

I was able to change the background color by adding the codes below to (Confluence Admin > Stylesheet):

background: red;  

However, this will not work if you are using documentation theme, and will only work if you are on Default theme.


Thanks mate, I will try to do this one.
