You changed the paper swatch, right?
Common beginner mistake. That color is simply to simulate the color of the paper it will be printed on and nothing else.
If you really want to print that color you’ll need to go the master page, draw a frame and fill it with the color you want.
I did, I double clicked on the PAPER swatch and changed it there.
Also, I will be printing on that color paper, but I also want to be able to view the document in the color I chose on the internet.
Ah, ok, let me try going to the Master page and change the co;or there. I'll try it now. Thanks.
That worked, thanks.

If you are printing on colored paper then you don't want to add a colored frame to the master because you will end up printing a colored ink on colored paper. InDesign allows you to softproof printing on non-white papers by changing the [Paper] swatch which always prints as 0|0|0|0 CMYK no matter what color you assign it. AcrobatPro has a similar feature in Output Preview—Set Page Background Color.
For the best preview you have to turn on Overprint Preview, but keep in mind colored paper soft proofs might not be particularly accurate. The ink density could really change color.
So Red CMYK on white, a random green [Paper] color, followed by green paper with OP turned on.
Offset inks are transparent, so OP is more accurate
I totally understand. I have two copies currently saved. One with no background to be printed on the color paper, the other with a background color to be used on the internet. (FaceBook)
Thanks for the help
