Through past forum posts, I have figured out how to modify the text colors in the menus of eleven40 but I want the black header and footer (and menu) style to change colors. I thought I found it in the CSS but nothing changed on my site. I know it is possible as I've seen other sites that link to it (via the forum). Help please? I'm new to CSS editing. Thank you!!http://www.thehelpfulscout.comSeptember 10, 2013 at 10:34 am #61692
for the header : in your theme's style.css, search for the .site-header part where it says background: url......
and replace the url by a color of your choice (best in #hex format like #dd43ff).
for the menu background : in the same style.css, look for the .genesis-nav-menu and there enter the same as you did with the header : background : #ffeesd; (or whatever colour 😉 )
for the footer : same as menu but look for the .footer-widgets code in the styles.css file
That should do the trick 😉

Thanks! I started with the header and changed it (to a horrible color, but I wanted to see if it worked and it doesn't seem to). The code I changed is:

Hooray! Thank you! The title bar is a nice shade of blue now. I'll get working on the other ones. For some reason, it takes ~3-5 minutes from editing the file for it to show up in my browser, even if I force a reload. Caching I guess. Once I solve the remaining colors, I'll see if there is anything else I want to fix style wise. I'm much happier with this theme than I was with my old one.September 10, 2013 at 3:48 pm #61776
Thank you for mentioning Chrome developer tools. I can see how that helps a lot!! I have downloaded chrome and it really helps to know which area is which. Now I just need to finish my color fixes (requires patience due to the caching).September 11, 2013 at 12:16 am #61843
