Theme: Eggo - want to change theme colors (6 posts)

    I am using the Eggo theme from Splashing Pixels with the WP-eCommerce plugin. My client has chosen a leather-like built-in background in a creme-colored family. The entire content area, however, comes with a silver-based color and does not go well with the background. There is no option in the theme to change that color scheme. I am a beginning beginner with CSS changes, and want to enter a hex color into the editor (I understand I should enter changes in css_styles and load it to the Theme file) to change the color scheme to a warmer tone. Is anyone familiar with this theme, and can I get some help finding the right places in the CSS code to make these changes? Really appreciate the help, thanks.

    Don't Splashing Pixels provide support for their products?

    They do, but they do not give a guide to the CSS code. I was hoping for help in locating where in the CSS I would find the skins for the main body of the site.

    We do not support commercial themes as you paid for support when you bought the theme. It is not our place to keep theme vendors in business or deprive them of any income that they may derive from support services.

    You should not be making any changes in any theme files - to make CSS changes, you can COPY the code you want to change to a Child Theme or Custom CSS option (if your theme has it - otherwise use a plugin) - and in the copied code make the change.

    A browser tool like Firebug is the best way to do this kind of CSS work - there's lots of good info on the Firebug website.

    Thanks so much. Yes, the instructions from Splashing Pixels is to put the revised code into a css_styles file and upload to the theme folder. They do have the ability to create child themes also, but that is more involved than I want to get--I'm just changing a few colors here. The CSS code option only includes the header or footer in the theme. I will check out Firebug. Thank you!
