Problems Changing Theme

    I paid for the CSS editor and was expecting to simply just have to edit the html (or whatever it is) from the “blue” to “orange” for the top thing above my heading and for the sidebar.

    Why isn’t it that simple? And if it is, then how is it?

    How can I easily make these minor adjustments to my theme?

    Try sending in a feedback too and see if that helps.

    which parts specifically do you want to change?

    you’ll want to start by pasting in some of the css from your theme, and modifying it:

    .orange #footer, .orange .widgets, .orange #header {
    border-color:#bbf;
    }
    .orange ul#nav li.current_page_item a,
    .orange ul#nav li.current_page_item a:hover {
    background:#bbf;
    border-color:#ddf #99d #99d #ddf;
    }
    .orange #sidebar #search, .orange #wp-calendar caption, .orange #comments dt.highlighted,
    .orange #sidebar #subpages h2, .orange #wp-calendar #today {
    background:#bbf;
    }
    .orange #pageNav a { background:#bbf; }

    start by changing #bbf to whatever orange color you want.

    Which theme do you have?
    I am new to this and hardly understand a lot of this but one of the first things I did was change the color of the text on my header. I use Connections.

    After I uploaded the header image, there was a choice underneath it that said something like “modify text color” or something similar and I just clicked on it, and a beautiful chart of many colors came up, and I picked one. No CSS.

    Looks orange to be. I’m going to mark this one as resolved.
