    Hi, I am trying to change my background color of the simple-catch theme. Right now the top is plain white, which i would like to change. The place where I post I have managed to change to a off-white which is what I wanted... how do i fix this?

    I would also like my slider to be smaller to fit the pictures i have showing...?

    The top white section is using a background image;

    Are you using a Child Theme or Custom Style/CSS plugin?

    Hi Kim,

    In your CSS, change this:

    #header .top-bg {
    background-position: center bottom;
    height: 16px;
    border-bottom: 4px solid #CCC;
    }

    to

    #header .top-bg {
    background-position: center bottom;
    height: 16px;
    border-bottom: 4px solid #CCC;
    display: none;
    }

    That will only change the top without messing with the same image on the footer. I see your in Newport area, I'm in Irvine, so was surprised when I saw the picture of Triange Square. Anyways, your either going to have to create a child theme so future updates to your theme, NOT WordPress will override your changes, or if your not worried, you can just modify the regular CSS.

    Hi thanks!

    that helped. Sorry I have two more questions... How do you change the font color below the slider page, right now its grey. I also would like to change the right side bar trending widget and custom tag widget to not display grey I would like them be just white.

    Final question: How do you put boarders around the side bar widgets?

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

    Also, for the sidebar, change:

    #sidebar .custom-tagcloud a {
    padding: 1px 7px;
    color: black;
    background-color: #DDD;
    display: inline-block;
    margin-bottom: 4px;
    font-size: 12px;
    -webkit-border-radius: 3px;
    -moz-border-radius: 3px;
    border-radius: 3px;
    }

    to:

    #sidebar .custom-tagcloud a {
    padding: 1px 7px;
    color: black;
    background-color: white;
    display: inline-block;
    margin-bottom: 4px;
    font-size: 12px;
    -webkit-border-radius: 3px;
    -moz-border-radius: 3px;
    border-radius: 3px;
    }

    Hi Zolane,
    You can either make your own child theme and change the styles there or you can go to Appearance-> Theme options->Custom css and paste the css code over there.Either way the the changes will not be erased when you update the theme

    Hi,
    I am trying to figure out how to change the header image (I think that's what it's called). I can change the background for the bottom part, but how do we change the header? (Not the slider images)
    Also, how do I change the font color of the website name (the writing beside the logo?) Thanks.

    WebsiteNewbie,

    Can you create your own thread depicting the problem? You're more likely to receive help this way.
