Can I change background colour from white? (5 posts)

    I have just started using the Ridizain theme and for the most part, I love it! However, I want to have a black background with white text rather than white background with black text. Is this possible? I can't see an option to change background colour in the customize section.

    I should add that I have absolutely no programming knowledge!

    Oh and also - is there a way to change the colour of the 'sign me up' button from green?

    You might want to look at a plugin called "styles" which helps non-coders make these kind of template adjustments. https://wordpress.org/plugins/styles/

  3. Hey there,

    Not sure about the button, I don't see it on the demo site. Please include a link to your site where this appears. :)

    .site, .site-header, #secondary, .site-content .entry-header, .site-content .entry-meta,.entry-summary, .site-content .entry-content, .site-content .entry-summary, .page-content, .site-footer  {
    background-color: #000;
    }
    
    a:active, a:hover, a:visited, .site-description, .site-title a,
    .site-title a:hover, .site-footer, .site-info, .site-info a, .site-navigation a, .menu-toggle:before, .featured-content .entry-meta, .featured-content a:hover, .entry-title a, .widget-title,
    .widget-title a, .widget_calendar tbody a:hover, .widget_calendar tbody a, .widget a, .widget_calendar caption, .widget textarea, .widget mark,
    .widget ins, p  {
    	color: #fff;
    }

    There is a chance that the theme has a CSS field in the options, if not then you can make a child theme:

    Or you can instead use a plugin if you like:

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/my-custom-css/screenshots/

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/pc-custom-css/

    You may still have some other areas that need attention, you should check around your site. :)

    Have a fantastic day! :)

    Thanks to both of you for your help. Timothy - I used your code and it was perfect - you're a genius! I will indeed check around my site - any clues? ;0)

  5. That's awesome! :)

    It's just a case of looking around and making sure all text is visible (click mouse and highlight all content to see if anything was hiding). I don't personally use the theme so there might have been something I missed.

    If I did then please just let me know :)

    Have a great day! :)
