I'm setting up a child theme and attempting to change some of the colors. I'm making progress, ever so slowly.
I was having trouble overriding the background header color. Then i realized I should be able to do that simply by Dashboard/Appearance/Customize/Colors - and then setting the background color. Then Save and Publish.
I did this with both my "production" site and my test site. i expected the background color in the header to change from black to red. but nothing happened, even when i refresh the browser. Is it not working or am i just not understanding. ?
