Upgraded from iBlogPro stand alone and now I can't

Question

Posted · Report post

replicate the color scheme that was in place before. I really liked the blueish theme from the old version, but when I upgraded it changed and I can't seem to figure out how to go back to the old look.

Also the menus look "fuzzy". How can I crisp them up a bit?

iBlogPro5 has been designed with a new look so there isn't a way to go back to the old look in the options, but you can replicate the old look using custom CSS and graphics. Are you familiar with using a CSS inspection tool to create styling that can be added to your site (the styling can override the look that exists)?

Firebug is the CSS inspection tool you'll need, which you can download and install on Firefox: http://getfirebug.com. Instructions on how to use it for CSS customizations are here: http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/Custom_CSS#How_to_use_CSS_Inspection_Tools

Thanks. How do I know what the old settings were and how do I get ahold of the image files I'll need to replicate the old look. It's pretty disappointing that it wasn't obvious that in the process of upgrading that I'd dramatically change the look that was available. It's just as disappointing (or even more so) that no one from Pagelines has bothered to respond. Right in the framework itself they profess "The First Rule It's time we introduce you to the first rule. The first rule of PageLines is that you come first. We truly appreciate your business and support." And world class support in their moderated forum, but no response from them.

If you still have iBlogPro4 installed on your server, you can re-activate that, inspect the old elements; copy and paste them to a notepad, then return to iBlogPro5 through Dashboard > Appearance > Themes and work with the inspection tool there to test and implement changes.

Both Catrina and I are moderators and have replied. I'm sorry that our replies haven't been as timely as expected. We'll certainly endeavor to be more responsive.
