New Custom Colors Option - Twenty Eleven

  1. sensuousinkspiller

    I've changed the colors for fonts, headers, hover, links, etc. through CSS.

    With the new Custom Colors option for Custom Design, should we remove the color changes that we've done through CSS coding, and instead do it through this?

    Is there a benefit to one over the other?

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is sensuousinkspiller.com.

    It's been two weeks, and so I'm bumping.

    I haven't been here long enough to have changes made through CSS become available in other ways, so I don't know if I should be changing anything, or ignoring it all.

    (As someone who reads the forums regularly, I see that the squeaky wheel constant bumpers really do get the most attention. They shouldn't, but they sure do.)

  4. I'm sorry this has happened to you. The custom design upgrade does come with Staff support and it's clear from the advertisements for new Happiness Engineers that they all have CSS editing skills. However, designsimply has been carrying that load here assisted by thesacredpath (a Volunteer) and neither appear to be available at this time. Perhaps you ought to use this link and contact Staff directly. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

    Thank you, timethief, I did just that!

  6. Good for you.

    It's possible to use both, but I would recommend removing current color-related CSS and then trying out Custom Colors so you can see what it's really doing. Once you find something that you like, you can add back CSS code to make further adjustments if needed.

    Is there a benefit to one over the other?

    The custom colors option was designed to be crazy simple to use, but it's also designed to work on a a set of elements as defined by a custom color mapping that is specific to each theme and made by one of our theme team developers. That means some of the choice surrounding which colors change with Custom Colors is determined by the theme. Custom Colors is probably the best choice for anyone who doesn't want to mess with any CSS code, and the CSS Editor is best for making fine-grained, super-specific color updates using CSS code.
