Support » Themes and Templates » Foto Theme color changes?

  • Hi all…

    I’ve given up trying to use the themes with sliders, my brain just can’t wrap itself around how to make them work. (wish there was an easy slider theme that you could just upload the photos you wanted into the slider)

    Trying to work with the “Foto” theme now and wondering how I change the background and font colors??

    I would like to have a black background and white lettering (opposite of what it is now) to make the photos pop out.

    Can anyone help?

  • Hi

    well, thats not so hard is it? Just find style.css inside template folder and find “body”. You’ll see then that it has a defined background

    body {
    background: #FCFBFD url('img/bg-pattern.png') repeat left center;
    color: #B1B1B1;
    font-family: "LatoRegular", Arial, "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, sans-serif;
    text-rendering: optimizeLegibility;

    delete everything in background and just put #000 which is equalent to black. color is what controls letter color, just change it to #fff (white)


    So I did this:

    body {
    background: #000000 url(‘img/bg-pattern.png’) repeat left center;
    color: #FFFFFF;
    font-family: “LatoRegular”, Arial, “Helvetica Neue”, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    text-rendering: optimizeLegibility;
    /* */

    As instructed…and it changed the writing (some of it) but the background stayed white??

    If I delete: url(‘img/bg-pattern.png’) repeat left center; in the background row, the lettering turns black.
    So I did above and see what I have at:

    help! 😛

    Careful, any changes to original theme files will erase once the theme updates (if not custom theme).

    You should either use a Child Theme or a Custom Style/CSS plugin.

    If you don’t want the white-ish and striped background image, remove



    background: black url('img/bg-pattern.png') repeat left center;

    Ok…I sort of got this to work but without the CSS edit, it was an option within the theme itself.

    Next question…How do I get rid of the big white line on my main page??

    Next question…How do I get one picture from each page to act as a link on the main page to the page in question (not just the links on the bottom)?

    Next question…why on my pages the pictures are to the ‘left’ even though I select “center” when inserting them?

    All help is appreciated…
