    Hi,

    if you check out my website and click on the latest post ‘new test’, you’ll see that the body at the top is black. I know how to change this (edit page, custom colour etc), but I don’t want to have to do this for every single post I make. Also, when I do change it to white like the rest of the website, I then hover over the title name or author name for example, and the word disappears. No matter how much adjusting I do with the settings, I can’t seem to solve it.

    is there a way to create a standard page and then apply those settings to all new posts so that I don’t have to mess around with it after it’s published?

    hope it’s clear. Thanks!

  • Hi hamstermaths,

    What theme are you using? It’ll be down to the single.php (or whatever template the posts use). However, I would expect the header to be the same across templates.

    Hey, I’m using Themify Ultra. (Not the paid version, so I don’t get support, hence the question is posed here). I’m not familiar with coding or anything, is there something I can edit so that all new posts have the same layout? Also, when I search for something on the site, the search result page is a different colour :'(

    Ok, I’m going to have to set this up on a dev site and have a play around. I can’t do that tonight though. Can it wait until the weekend?

    If not, someone else might be able to help you in the meantime.

    The fix should be dead simple but it does depend on how the theme has been coded and what has been restricted in the free version (they gotta make people pay somehow!)

    that’d be awesome! it can definitely wait (I’ve been waiting several days already) :p

    I’ll be here! 🙂

    Go to the “Additional CSS” section of the dashboard; https://codex.wordpress.org/CSS#Custom_CSS_in_WordPress

    you’ll see that the body at the top is black

    Add this:

    
    body .header-minbar .sidemenu, 
    body .header-leftpane #headerwrap, 
    body .header-rightpane #headerwrap, 
    body .header-slide-out #headerwrap, 
    body .header-slide-out .sidemenu, 
    body #headerwrap, 
    body #footerwrap {
        background: white;
    }
    

    Also, when I do change it to white like the rest of the website, I then hover over the title name or author name for example, and the word disappears

    Can you check if this persists when adding the above CSS? If it does then can you show us a post with the problem?

    Hey Andrew.

    It’s solved! Thank you so much. I’ve been trying to get a fix for it for several days now. Now I’ll be able to launch soon! When I hover over the author name and meta (where it says ‘uncategorised’) next to it, it doesn’t follow the theme colour and go to #0bd927 when I hover. Is it also possible to make this ‘categorised’ font black? The same hover issue is present for where it says ‘new test’ just above related posts.

    Also, at the bottom of the page where you can submit a comment, the button for submit (I think it’s the background) is black. Can I change this to white?

    I don’t know how much work this is for you, so if it’s too much to ask then I understand if you can’t do it. But I at least appreciate that you’ve fixed the background colour issue.
    Thanks man!

    And Andrew, if the other issues are too time-consuming for you. Could you perhaps look at my other post? https://wordpress.org/support/topic/some-images-now-showing-up-when-logged-out/#post-9584573

    Thanks for helping out a noob! 🙂

    Oh sorry, if you see this page: it’ll make sense, with regards to the hover/font issues

    When I hover over the author name and meta (where it says ‘uncategorised’) next to it, it doesn’t follow the theme colour and go to #0bd92

    I’m afraid I don’t see the meta in #0bd92, I only see it in black: https://pasteboard.co/GOLfRbk.png

    Sorry, I overlooked it. The meta colour is fine, but is it possible to change the author colour to black? And also to hover over both of them in the colour of #0bd927? https://imgur.com/a/UL59T

    I’ve also just realised that I don’t have a sidebar for the page. I actually deactivated the sidebar and I am using something called widgetized which I add by turning the builder on. Is there a way to enable the widgetized sidebar for new post pages? I had problems with the sidebar being way too far to the right so I had to disable it and use widgetized instead, and then individually change the font, colour and size for everything inside this module for every page. https://imgur.com/a/zAVOW

    **UPDATE**

    I have resolved most issues regarding the hover button. The main issue now is the widgetized sidebar appearing in new posts. I have no idea how to do that.

    And also, this strange problem: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/some-images-now-showing-up-when-logged-out/#post-9584573

    I’m finding it difficult to follow this thread. To me it looks resolved, but the thread keeps evolving into different problems. If it is resolved please mark it as so and raise new threads for new issues.

    Glad you got it fixed.
