    Hi there, your site is currently in a maintenance mode, so could you please let us know which colours exactly you wish to change?

    @cottonbarry:

    I want to make two color changes to the Helena Pro theme I am using.

    First: THE LOGO SLIDER- that shows a number of images of historical people. I want the background color to go from TAN to MAROON #600009

    SECOND: The MAIN ENTRY AREA (left of the sidebar) needs to go from TAN #e2d9c0 to the more yellow-beige color like the SIDEBAR #e2d9c0

    Previously, Skandha helped me with similar issues and I hope he is able to help me again.

    I have taken my site out of “Maintenance Mode” to enable Skandha to help me.

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    @cottonbarry: Your site still seems to be in Maintenance Mode. Let me know when your site is accessible.

    Kind Regards,
    Skandha

    I thought I had deactivated MAINTENANCE MODE but guess not. It is off now and should be accessible.

    @cottonbarry: Go to => Appearance => Customize => Additional CSS and add the following CSS Code.

    /* To change the background color of Logo Slider section */
    #logo-slider .wrapper {
    	background-color:#600009;
    }
    
    /* To change the background color of the Content Area */
    #content .wrapper {
    	background-color:#f2e4bc;
    }

    Let me know if this works out!
    Kind Regards,

    WONDERFUL!!! THAT DID IT! THANKS SO MUCH!

    @cottonbarry: Glad I could help you out. Have a wonderful day! 🙂

    Hello again, Skandha,

    If possible, I would like to reorganize the HOMEPAGE. Currently, it is organized from top to bottom as follows:

    1.Identity (site name etc)
    2. Menu
    3. FEATURED SLIDER
    4. LOGO SLIDER
    5. Main Content Page
    6. FEATURED CONTENT SLIDER

    The FEATURED SLIDER takes up to much “real estate” before seeing the Main Content Page.

    So, I would like to MOVE >>> the FEATURED SLIDER to just above the FEATURED CONTENT SIDER so the new top to bottom organization of HOME is:

    1.Identity (site name etc)
    2. Menu
    3. LOGO SLIDER
    4. Main Content Page
    5. FEATURED SLIDER
    6. FEATURED CONTENT SLIDER

    Hopefully, this is a simple fix.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Barry

    PS

    If possible, I hope that the LOGO SLIDER can occupy the “space” that the FEATURED SLIDER does so that the “bread crumb” area appears as it currently does. (below the slider)

    @cottonbarry: For this you will need to create a child theme. You can use Generate Child Theme plugin if you don’t know how to create a child theme. Install and Activate the plugin then Go to => Dashboard => Generate Child Theme tab => Select parent theme as Helena Pro and fill the other fields then press Generate. This will create and activate the child theme.

    Now, Go to => Child Theme Folder => functions.php and add the following Code.

    function remove_my_action(){
    	remove_action( 'helena_after_header', 'helena_featured_slider', 20 );
    	remove_action( 'helena_before_content', 'helena_logo_slider', 70 );
    
    }
    add_action( 'wp_head', 'remove_my_action' );
    
    function add_my_action () {
    	add_action( 'helena_after_header', 'helena_logo_slider', 20 );
    	add_action( 'helena_after_content', 'helena_featured_slider', 20 );
    }
    add_action( 'wp_head', 'add_my_action' );

    Let me know if this does the trick.

    Skandha,

    I created the Child Theme but where do I find the CHILD THEME FOLDER?

    Under menu WP Admin – under Appearance?

    I can not find any CHILD THEME FOLDER.

    Where is it located?

    Barry

    Also… I am back in MAINTENANCE MODE. DOES THIS MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE?

    I took the website out of Maintenance Mode. URL is https://cottonsbostons.blog/

    @cottonbarry: You should find the Child Theme where your Helena Pro theme is located. It should be under your WordPress installed directory under wp-content => themes.

    Let me know if you are still having any issues.
    Kind Regards,
    Skandha
