Background color in Child Theme

I am using a child theme and want to change the background color to white. I though all I would have to do is add this code to me style.css

body {
    background-color: #FFFFFF;

But that doesnt seem to be working. What am I doing wrong?

Figured it out. I need to make all the changes in the Wordpress CSS Editor, not the file in the theme.

Hi @hubs,

Awesome great to see you got that figured out.

Please advise if you have more questions.

Have a fantastic day!

Best Regards,
