  • Hi,

    I think i put this in the place to start with so apologies for double posting.

    I am having serious problems trying to change the main background colour of the twenty eleven ecommerce theme. Any help would be really appreciated. Heres my problems-

    I cant change it in the style.css. I have come to realise that its probably because it conflicts and that if this was a child theme i had done i would have to make a function file and custom.css. My problem is this isnt mine and there is already a function file with loads of stuff in i dont understand but nothing about the main background colour. So do i make another function file or edit the one i have? If so how?

    I also had the same colour with the menu colour until i found out if i changed back to the default white colour i could edit it. It worked great apart from i cant edit the drop down colour or font and background hover styles.

    Thats it! Please help me!

  • You can change all the colors you mention in the style.css file. If you post a link to your site, someone may be able to give you more specific help.


    My site isnt live so it wont help. I dont know if you read my post correctly because as I said, I cant change them in style.css, it wont work. I have read up on why it wont work and got told that there is a conflict or something and if it was my child theme then i would have to make a funtion file and a custom.css. but this isnt my shild theme this is a theme by cartpress-i think- called wordpress ecommerce. It is already a child theme, which already had a function file, so i dont know if i can make a custom css, or if the file called rts.css is their custom file.

    Can anyone help that has experience with wordpress ecommerce theme? They have a forum but its more to do with the ecommerce part and not the style and no one will answer my questions.
