Support » Theme: Twenty Thirteen » navbar and lower aside colors, 2013 theme

  • Hi guys,

    I need to change the navbar color and the color of the beige aside box at the bottom of the screen. I’ve removed all the widgets from the footer so the dark brown box doesn’t show, and I’ve edited the CSS:

    navbar{
    background-color: #mynewcolor;
    }

    but its not working. If anyone could point out what I’m doing wrong it would be greatly appreciated.

    Also not sure where you would edit the background color of the lower aside box…

    site is waplanfinderhelp.com.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  • You really need to be using a child theme to make changes to the default theme – as is, all of your changes will be overwritten when WP is updated.

    It’s also imperative to have an unmodified default theme for various troubleshooting purposes.

    OK I will make a child theme – I do get that, but honestly this is really the only modification I need to make to the theme itself, and is easily reinstated provided I can find the spot to make the color change work.

    Do you have any insight on that?

    Once we see your site using a child theme, we may be able to help.

    OK – child theme in use. It’s pretty simple but there it is. What else do I need to do?

    You need to activate the child theme – doesn’t show up on your site ATM –

    Have you ported your changes to the new child theme and uploaded a fresh copy of the original parent theme?
