Front Page color issue

    I want to change some of the coloring on my front page, specifically below the header in the section that contains the post preview and recent stories.

    I know how to change the principle color via the customize options, however if i choose something darker then the differentiation boxes disappear in the menu items and the recent story and post review all blend together without differentiation.

    If there a way to manage the shading/coloring individually so that I can till keep the separation even though I’m going to a darker color?

    Maybe adjust the colors individually for the different sections as they seem to be controlled by only one color module in the customize section?


    The blog I need help with is


    to add: notice how under the header there are two shades of blue, if I adjust the color to darker under the customize module the two shades of blue merge to become one and hence the separation is lost..

    Hi – there’s no additional controls for the custom colours. What I would suggest is that you get as close as you can using the custom colours – and then explain what you want to change. Assuming it’s just some contrast issues then I should be able to give you some tweaks that can be added to the custom css that will make it look as you want.


    Ok I ‘ll give a whirl this weekend and will post here. One thing I noticed is if I adjust that color section the css code we added to set the background to a different color gets overwritten and the original background color shows up again. Now I haven’t ever saved any color change as I was just experimenting, but I also want to make sure the background color change with CSS is still functional after I hit save.

    I’m not sure – it’s certainly possible that the custom colours could override the changes to the custom css. If that happens then I am sure I can give you some ‘stronger’ rules that will make the colour you chose previously come back :)


    ok finally had a chance to look at it. Here’s in essence what I’m trying to do:

    Notice how the color is much darker and the text in the recent stories is white highlighted against the darker background?

    I may or may not choose the same color, but the concept it what I’m after. Darker while still keeping separation with text and boxes..



    the darker colors are just punchier and help contrast things better. Thx
