Pagelines Framework v. 2.3.5: I would like to change the color of the footer. I have both Pagelines pro and Framework and it looks like they handle this differently. My question is regarding Frameworks. The current color is WHITE. I would like to make it BLACK with WHITE text.

 

Im new to this theme. Please be specific in your steps. I appreciate any help.

Hi there,The color of the footer text can be set within the system in Pagelines>Site Options>Color Control.

 

In the Pagelines Framework you'd have to use css to change the bg color of your footer. If you've not used css before I'd advise you check out this link http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/Custom_CSS which will give you an overview. We'd advise you get firebug, www.getfirebug.com which is a web developer tool to find the various Id's and Classes required to make the css amendments. Another great resource for learning css is http://www.w3schools.com/css/

 

An example of change the color of the footer using css is below. The instruction background changes the background color to black, and color changes the text.

 

#footer {background: #000000;
color: #ffffff;}

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Hi, I was trying to do this too and it worked at first, but something happened and it stopped working. Here's the website: http://bringtheharvest.com/ and here's the code I entered:

 

#footer {background: #294176;
color: #ffffff;}

 

I entered it in the custom CSS field, and like I said it worked at first but then stopped for some reason. Any ideas?

 

Thanks for your time.

Thom,

 

Please, in future, open your own topics and reference others that are related.  It helps both us and you.

 

Evidently, something is using the same CSS elements (a plugin, perhaps) or, you've implemented a base or other child theme which doesn't have the same CSS present.  I've tried applying #294176 via Firebug, but it won't take, so it's definitely being overridden somewhere.

Sorry about commenting here; didn't realize. I'll try disabling everything one by one and see if it works again. Thanks!
