It works, just you need to fill the href="" with # so that it looks like this: href="#". Or you will have mouse click to point your browser to the start page of your site. Also you have to disable CSS background styles for particular page.

First of all, this thread is over 6 years old, so you are lucky to get a reply, read the rules.
Search before asking.
You are obviously very new to this if you didn't know &#39; is the ANSI code for ' and the #FB2B27is a red, #00B008 will be a green so the code is "this.bgColor=&#39;#00B008&#39;"and this will give you a green. Or you can write it "this.bgColor='#00B008'"
