How to change color on Brownline theme? (6 posts)

    I have read previous questions about changing colors in WordPress themes, but none of the suggestions seem to be working in my case.

    I am using the Brownline theme. It is a free themes that I downloaded from WordPress.org. I like the theme, but I want to change the background color from brown to black. The brown background is on the border, and the area that I would use for blog posts. I have already created a replacement header image, so that is taken care of. But I can't seem to get rid of all of the brown.

    My site is mmachalet.com if that is helpful. But the theme is readily available so it should be pretty easy to find.

    If anyone can find the lines in the stylesheet css that I have to change, it would be greatly appreciated (at least that's where I think the changes need to be made, but maybe that's the problem). I think the code for black is #000000. That is what I have been trying, but it hasn't worked anywhere that I have put it. Am I using the right code, or am I just putting it in the wrong place? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Ahhhhh, so you're saying that instead of colors, the background is actually images. Well that would explain why I couldn't change it. I tried changing every line in the Stylesheet where I saw a color, but I was only able to change the text colors. None of them seemed to change the background colors.

    If the backgrounds are actually images, how do I make the stylesheet disregard the images and use a color instead? Do I delete all of the lines that reference the images and replace them with colors? If that is the case, what would the code look like?

    I just thought of an idea that might work. If I create new image files to replace the existing ones, it might accomplish what I am trying to do. The new image files would be black, the color that I want to replace the existing color with. However, this seems like the long and tedious solution. Is there a way to do it like I originally envisioned? Can I simply delete the reference to the image files and replace them with color commands?

    yes, the easiest way would be to replace the image files with ones you have created. Just use the same images and change the color...make sure to rename the new files the same as the old ones and then upload them in the correct location.

    As always back-up (keep a copy in a different folder)of the original files.
