CSS Color change locked? (9 posts)

    I know how to change til colors of a Style Sheet. However for some themes it seems not to be possible.

    Here for example i would like to change the 'background: #DADAD0' to 'background: #FFFFFF' (white) but nothing happens when i do that. But i can for example easely change the font-size..
    And that goes for the entire style sheet!

    body {
    background: #DADAD0 url(images/back.jpg) 0 repeat;
    color: #400000;
    text-align: center;
    font-family: verdana, helvetica, arial, sans-serif;
    font-size: 12px;

    I wanda is the author of a theme able to lock or disable certain functions?

    The question I would ask is, what color is back.jpg? If that image is there it'll prevent you from seeing the change in the background color.

    This was just an example. I can change no colors in the entire Style Sheet!

    The reply was also an "example" :)
    If you have a background image... you cannot do anything about/with the colours! That's why the question was asked above!
    If you have an image like this:
    no matter what colour code you put in the stylesheet - nothing will happen.

    I understand that I cannot change a background color that I cannot see, if it's covered by an image. Or change the colors in the image, except in Photo Shop or so, which I did. (thats why i want to change the stylesheet colors so they match)

    Heres another ex. -the blog name. I can change it's position, the font size, but still not it's color!?

    #blog_name {
    position: absolute;
    left: 55px;
    top: 30px;
    color: #DBD1C2;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    font-size: 36px;
    letter-spacing: -2px;
    word-spacing: -0.8px;

    It doesn't make any difference if I change it through WordPress og through Firefoxes Web Developer plug-in.
    To me this does not compute..

    I think that´s because "blog name" is a link. You have to change the link-color too.

    It's because the word "ArgoNauterne" in the header image is itself part of the image. It's not text, so it's going to be unaffected by the css. Perhaps your theme has a script for making the blog name part of the image in this way?

    You could try having the blog name appear in h1 tags over a background image in a more conventional, search-engine-friendly, and more flexible way.

    Thank you for your replys! I have been unable to solve the problem. Still no colors at all could be changed. I have changed Style Sheet now. And now all colors can change :-)
