    I have searched all the forums for changing the events calendar category colors which I would like to do but do not understand where the files are located within my theme to make the changes. Where is the styles.css file? I am using weaver II
    Do you have to have pro in order to change colors?

    Hi Alasha,

    wp-content is the main area of where all your sites files are stored. WIthin wordpress you can access the theme editor under "Appearance > Editor" to access these files. Or you can use FTP.

    If you use FTP you would find them by going to your main install directory (either on your root or in a folder) > wp-content >themes>your theme name. If you are wanting to modify colors, I would suggest installing Firebug for Chrome or Firefox. This will show you what the exact element is that you want to change.

    Hope this helps.

    Why don't you try The Events Calendar Category Colors plugin and see if it works for you?

    alasha: that help you out at all? Do you still have any questions on this, or is this thread ready to be marked RESOLVED? Let me know and I'll follow-up as needed.

    I can’t find this location. I go to themes and there are three of them. They are large pictures showing information about the themes installed.

    I can change basic display items like colors (for some of the items) and background image, etc., but I wanted to change the display of things requiring editing of the css/php files.

    I can find the editor, selected the styles.css file and I’ve made changes on the theme that I selected. I’ve saved this in a word document in the event the updates change what I’ve done.

    I can save this with the same name but I can’t change the name.

    I intended to save it with a new name but couldn’t. Then I was going to change the name from within the styles.css and I couldn’t. I wouldn’t know what to expect either.

    I was trying to create a Child Theme.
    How to Create a Child Theme
    Child Theme directory structure
    Create a directory in your themes directory to hold the child theme. The theme directory is wp-content/themes. You should name the directory without any space as part of the name, and it is common practice to use the name of the parent theme folder with “-child” appended to it. For example, if you are making a child of the twentyfourteen theme, your folder name would be twentyfourteen-child.

    This isn't straight forward.

    lynnboyett, if you are trying to create a child theme you can't do that from inside of WordPress. You have to use a text editor, FTP, etc. Google 'WordPress child themes', I'm sure there's all kinds of information.

    This discussion probably belongs in a more general WordPress forum section rather than in this thread about a specific WordPress plugin.

    Also, if you're saving your code files in a Word document, prepare for all kinds of badness.
