[resolved] Change Colors (13 posts)

    I would like to change the pink "lines" in the design to an orange that matches my logo. I went into style.css and changed the hexadecimal codes for pink to the ones I wanted. When I reloaded the page, the only change was that the "lines" disappeared altogether!

    I was able to change the "line" at the top of the page, but only because I edited the image file used.

    What am I missing?

    Can you post a sample (one line of code) of the original code you are modifying and the new code you are replacing it with?

    I solved my problem. I skipped over a few items in bootstrap and they were using three very similar shades of pink; I was only searching for and replacing one of them. Doesn't really explain why things disappeared, but I've got it sorted now. Thanks for your time, iopsychguy.

    dcardona: Where did you find the style.css and change the hexadecimal codes along with all the other adjustments you made? ... Your page looks really good

    First, before making any changes, be sure to create and activate a child theme. The WordPress Codex has a great tutorial: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes.

    The stye.css can be accessed through the Appearance Editor. I had to go through my host to locate the bootstrap directory and file.

    I didn't keep note of the pink hexadecimal values, you'll just have to look for them. Also, in the bootstrap.css there were a few lines of code with RGB values, so don't forget to edit that as well.

    P.S. I used a background plug in to change the full-sized background.

    I cant even find the pink colour in the CSS... Does anyone know what the pinky red colour used as default (and how to easily change it)?

    I would suggest using Firebug (a Firefox plugin) to identify the CSS code you are looking for. I could be mistaken, but if it isn't located under your style sheet, then try Bootstrap.css. Color is #FF5B5B

    Hi I was wondering if anyone could help me change the color and size of the site description? I keep searching forums but have been unsuccessful. I have a Simple Custom CSS plugin that I've been using.

    Thank you!

    @esensky - this thread is already marked resolved, so not a good place to ask a new question. Please start your own and include a link to your site for help with CSS.
