    I want to remove all the shadow effect from the menu, 3d text effects from the menu and side bar, 3d effect from the side bar in Mystique theme. I wanted simple and clean without all the 3d/shadow effects, kind of like this theme: http://wpthemes.blogohblog.net/

    Can I do that?

    Thanks in advanced guys 😀

    There are thousands of WordPress themes – which means that many people won’t be familiar with your particular theme. So a link to your site where people can see the theme might result in more responses.

    Hi esmi,

    This is the link: http://gyonis.com/

    But basically, I’m talking about the 3d/shadow effects in the default Mystique theme. It looks the same in all sites using this theme.

    Thanks

    this is possible in a older version of Mystique (1.72 and lower).
    you can still download it from wordpress org:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/download/mystique.1.7.2.zip

    once you activate it enable the “imageless” option from the theme setting. it does exactly what you want…

    Thanks digitalnature. Does that mean I’m going to loose all the customization I did in the newer version? I did quite lot of customization.

    In your style.css-file
    find line:207 and 208 (.shadow-right & .shadow-left)
    remove
    background:url("images/shadow.png") no-repeat scroll left bottom transparent;

    find line: 527 (.box-top-right)
    set
    height: to height:0;

    And to get rid of the text-3d-effect (shadow)
    Search for this in your css:
    text-shadow:
    And remove it.

    That should do it!

    Thanks gregnak, that worked like a charm 🙂 That is exactly what I was looking for 😀
    (And I even think the theme is loading faster now for some reason)

    If I only know now how to remove the the gradient effect from the menu to make it plain solid color like this one; http://wpthemes.blogohblog.net/

    Thanks again for your help, really appreciate it

    Easy to do 😉
    Line 116 in your css, find and remove:
    background:url("images/nav.png") repeat-x scroll left top #EEEEEE;
    add:
    background-color:#EEEEEE; Change the color (#EEEEEE) to whatever you like.

    You’re amazing! That helped a lot gregnak! I actually backed up the style.css file and started trying all sort of things now 🙂 It sure helped a lot 🙂 Thanks 😀

    Hi Digitalnature
    the link to
    http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/download/mystique.1.7.2.zip is broken 🙁

    Could you please provide a correct one? I’m in need of the older version of your fantastic theme….

    Thanks!
