    Hi, I am sooo lost.

    I want to change all the blue colors to a pink (I know where to select the color code).

    So, I went to Appearance, then Editor then to the right I selected sidebar and this is what I see:

    (Edit moderator: functions.php removed here)

    Where should I change stuff? I need step by step instructions, I am not at all familiar with any of this. Thank you!

    Hi Amanda.

    Just insert CSS code in userdefined CSS on this page:

    http://www.amandacardoze.com/wp-admin/themes.php?page=graphene_options&tab=display

    Start with sidebar codes. Then look at color codes & find Your Pink color codes 🙂

    PS. Im shorten You post, the code is functions.php & not for color change!

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for this theme. I am still setting up my site but the theme seems to be working well. I just installed a child theme, to modify the colours, and it is also working. Some of my settings were reset to default values when I switched to the child theme but I guess that is expected.

    I had to make one small change to the style.css template – I changed the import line to read:

    @import url(“../graphene/style.css”);

    I realise now that this actually matches the above example. My version, probably copied from some other thread, did not have the initial two dots so the url was wrong. The other mistake I made at first was putting the child directory as a sub-folder of the graphene folder, so my dashboard didn’t see it. I only mention this in case others make the same mistake.

    Many thanks for your help,

    Cheers,

    Craig.

    Hi Craig

    Your Child Theme Will Help You Down The Line!

    I Just Hope More Users Would Make A Child Theme.

    But it Discovers After an Update by Any WordPress Theme 🙂

    Hello,

    I tried to follow the directions in this thread (I wanted to change the colors of the titles on the sidebar to grey and the title of each sidebar widget to white), but I seemed to have screwed up. I couldnt get it right and then i ended up accidentally deleting all the code under .sidebar h3. I’m very inexperienced with this code stuff so any and all help possible would be appreciated!

    Hi Jesse

    Well, based on your post & checking your site. I think the best advice right now is to have Clean WordPress 3.1.4 installed & then make a Graphene Child Theme based on Graphene 3.1.3 Just make a simple Child Theme style.css. Then within the next week or so The Graphene 1.4x will have new color options build-in Theme options. (And many other new great options 🙂

    Feel free to ask 🙂

    Thanks, Kim. Two questions:

    First, is there any way to revert to the Graphene default of the blue titles without losing any other edits I’ve made to the site (ie, the original line of coding under .sidebar h3 would be helpful, but I can’t seem to find it).

    Also, are you suggesting that when Graphene 1.4 launches it will have simple color change options built in to the dashboard? Because if this is the case, I think it would be best if I just revert my site back so it looked like it did with the blue widgets on the sidebar, and then changed it when graphene 1.4 launches. I dont really udnerstand this child theme business.

    Download a copy of your styles.css so you can view it in a text editor and get familiar with what’s there before you start editing. Specifically, search for this line:

    /* =Sidebars
    
    */

    The styling information for the sidebars is right below that. Once you get your site running again (reinstall Graphene first), copy one item at a time, paste it into the custom CSS section of Graphene options, make changes to the color codes, click “save” and reload your page. If it changes what you want to change, cool. If not, try another bit of CSS code.

    Alternately, you could use Firebug to find which elements you want to change. See this post.

    If all you want to change is the appearance of a few elements, a child theme is not necessary. If you decide that a child theme is necessary, there has been a lot of discussion about this on this forum.

    Good luck!
