Edited the theme's color files – want to undo it. Don't know how.

  • horndasch


    Dear people,

    First of all, apologies for my highly simple question. Some time ago, it was not as easy as it is today to change colors in Graphene. I hence figured out how to change the colors in the CSS, did it and was happy. My problem: My changes override any changes I do in the display menu. So I’m stuck with the colors as they are (grey) And being not geek enough, I don’t know how to undo what I did. But it must be simple. Help? Thanks a million.


    PS: My page: http://www.horndasch.net



    You changed the colors in the style.css and you want your color modifications in the graphene option to show?

    you can replace all the content of the style.css with the default one http://themes.svn.wordpress.org/graphene/1.7.2/style.css

    then you can make your customizations in the graphene options.



    I had thought that as well and tried it before. No change. Still all grey even though according to the graphics menu it shouldn’t be. Any other idea?

    Moved to Support. Please post in the correct section next time.

    What colour did you choose in the theme options?



    Dear Syahir,

    Sorry for the wrong section! I’m mainly talking about the Widget colors that don’t change whatever I do. The widget header is currently set on standard in the menu (#3c9cd2 – #1f6eb6). But I can also make it pink, in my blog, it’s all grey. I custom-changed it a year ago or so. But no idea what I changed that overrules your menu. It’s not the style.css as I already copy-pasted the original one in the editor. If I change other color settings than the widget menus, it by the way works. Thanks for helping!

    Btw, great theme, amazing work. I just donated (again) as a thank you measure.





    Have you tried to change the colour preset? ex. “dream magnet”,

    saving it then changing it back to default?

    Hey thanks!

    Do you have any caching plugin installed? If all else fails, try exporting the theme’s settings, then reset the theme settings. You can do both of these from the theme’s options page, on the right hand side panels.



    Thanks all of you! I made it by now. The idea of the reset was good. It didn’t work but it helped me realise my mistake: I had a custom css that I had thus far been ignorant about. Playing around with it with my fairly limited skills finally brought the desired outcome. Thanks again!
