Support » Fixing WordPress » Arras Theme – changing the header color

  • Hello,

    I’m using the Arras Theme 1.3.5 (WP version 2.8.2) and I’d like to change the color of the header to maroon instead of black. Do I have to edit the header.php file or the template.php? If so, where is the value located? I don’t see it.

    Thanks for your help!

    – Lilly

  • Most likely in your style.css file, do you have a link to your blog?

    Thank you! Yes, it is

    I don’t know if you sorted this! But in your style.css find the following code

    #header {
    background:#1E1B1A none repeat scroll 0 0;
    border-bottom:5px solid #383332;
    padding:0 0 15px;

    And edit the

    background:#1E1B1A none repeat scroll 0 0;

    With a new #FONT color to change the background color of the header.

    Sorry but this is all I see:
