    hi

    I am using your great theme on a site I am building.

    Can you tell me how I can tweak an existing theme? for example. I am using the HUNANITY theme for the sidebar widget instance of Event Geek -- i like the theme but want to change the colour of the header background and the little left and right arrows [to advance the month].

    how can i do this?

    thanks

    Phil

    Hi Phil,

    To alter the colors of a specific theme you need to uses css styles to overwrite the specific areas you want to change. To do this you need to find the css class of the specific element you want to alter. For example, this should work for the header:

    .gg_widget_calendar .ui-widget-header{
    background:#ccc;
    }

    If that doesn't work, send me a link to the site you're working on, and I'll take a look.

    Changing the arrows may be a little more difficult, since those use a background image with special positioning, but the principle is the same. I would copy the image it is currently using, recolor it, save a copy on your server, and then use css to make that the new background image.
