Footer background colour remains yellow...

Hello and happy new year to you all,

This is my first time posting on this forum so please have mercy (I'm sure you're all lovely people, no sarcasm intended :angel:).

In the past few months I have "inherited" a Wordpress site to manage for my company. The previous admin installed the "Pagelines Framework" theme a few years ago on the site. I have updated it, spruced things up a bit, more or less gotten the hang of its use. The website in question is https://www.asiapromotion.com.cn/ (don't mind the fact that it is in mandarin, that is normal).

Now for the problem: A couple of weeks ago my boss tasked me with installing analytics on the site, so the first thing I did was to try out the Jetpack plugin which did these things. Once I did this, the site theme changed (no idea if that was normal or why this happened), but actually most of the changes were welcome as the site seemed cleaner and more optimized.

The only backlash was that the Footer and Morefoot areas changed and have a yellow background, which does not fit at all with the theme and which my boss tasked me with changing. I have tried in every possible way that I can think of to change it, but no dice. It doesn't matter which widget I set in those areas, they anyway get a yellow background no matter what. I have even disabled and uninstalled the jetpack plugin ever since, but the changes that took place on the theme have remained set in stone...

I have even tried with this code in the html widget

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<style>
body {
    background-color: #6a0002
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<center>[text here]
</center>
</body>
</html>

So yeah, any help would be much appreciated!

Thank you

Hi!

Go to Page Lines Extension and download the plugin LESS/CSS.
After taking out that HTML code, go LESS/CSS and apply this code:

#sb_fullwidth.widget.widget-pad {
background-color: .....
}

 

here you have the pic with the CSS code: https://cl.ly/1B1q3s3q3q1V

I just tried now, I installed this https://www.pagelines.com/product/pl-plugin-custom-less/ (idk if its the wrong plugin, this the only thing I could find,  isn't it for the platform 5 theme? ) but when I activate it, the site goes topsy turvy, the columns start overlapping each other randomly, the whole thing nearly gave me a heart attack lol 

I imagine I am not doing the whole thing correctly... can't I edit the code from the additional css page?

Yes you are right, I thought it was the new platform.

And in custom is not working the CSS code? : https://cl.ly/2h0a2T0m3b39

I tried inserting the code you gave me, but it does not change the colour...

Anyway I have an update to the situation, I found out it is the Full Width Sidebar that has this problem, I have managed to solve *my* problem by using the Universal sidebar instead (even though I did not get to the bottom of the mystery of how/why the jetpack plugin changed things

Yes it's strange, but the CSS code, would work there.
