[resolved] Color of lines and menu? (17 posts)

    Asking quite a lot of questions here, but I couldn't find any help elsewhere :(

    Is it possible to change the color of the border "lines" on the MH theme? It's the same color that appears when you hover your mouse over a menu option.

    Thank you for any assistance!

    Just make a child theme, and search your style.css for border until you find the one with the corresponding color you'd like to change. Then change it.

    Hi barbellfocus,

    please add this to "Custom CSS":

    .main-nav, .widget-title, .footer-widget-title { border-bottom: 3px solid #abc; }

    Just change #abc to your own color. If you want to change the color of the whole theme to your own color, please open the style.css and replace everything you see with color #e64946 to your own color.

    Regards
    Michael

    That worked pretty well, but the color when you hover over the menu is still the original color. Any way to change that?

    Also, I did what you said and changed all #e64946 to #094b77 in style.css, but it looks like nothing has changed...

    I just checked your site and everything looks well. You should empty your browser cache and reload the site.

    hahaha as usual, I fiddled with it some more and got it. I found a "hover" line and changed that color to #9a9b97 and everything else clicked.

    Much thanks, helpful as usual :)

    One more thing, is it a good idea to make a child theme? Or is that unnecessary?

    Will my data be lost if the theme is updated?

    You're welcome! ;-)

    The changes in the style.css will be lost after you have updated the theme. So when you make customizations, it is always a good idea to use a child theme.

    But if you only change the colors or other CSS and no html markup, you can add that CSS to "Custom CSS" in the theme options. Those settings won't be lost after theme updates too.

    Are theme updates automatic? Is there a reason I have to update the theme?

    No theme updates are not automatic. You can always decide if you want to update by reading the changelog: http://www.mhthemes.com/themes/changelog-mh-magazine-lite/

    In the premium version can you change the colour of posts related to individual categories, or is there a way to customise this? So that the lines and titles for post in one category are a different colour to posts in another category?

    Hi Tanya,

    no - there are no individual colors for categories available out of the box. If you have further questions regarding the premium version, don't hesitate to contact us.

    Is the only way to change the colors of the row where the Pages are listed to go in and do it through the CSS?

    Hi jmdenouden,

    the free version of the theme has no color options included, so yes, the only way to change colors in the free version is by modifying the CSS code.

    The premium version of the theme is not only fully responsive (ready for mobile devices) and has a lot more features, but there are also color options (colorpickers) included to change the color scheme of the theme very easily.

    Regards
    Michael
