  1. Hi Alex, if you check out my website you’ll see I have made some progress towards creating six pages with a couple of subpages. However, I didn’t use any particular theme and now I would like to use textures and coloured backgrounds behind the text in the middle of the pages. Am I able to do this without having to revert to using a theme?
