Problem after update of Redwaves theme

linkPost by redfan10 » Wed Feb 03, 2016 12:10 pm

Hi,

After the last update of RedWaves theme I have this issue:
I am using child theme and I had changed the background of the footer with css. After the update the color went back to default of the theme and i can't change it anymore. How to fix that?
Thanks in advance

Greetings

Hi again Redfan10! Well here is the code that you should put in Custom CSS textarea ( it's always recommended to use the Custom CSS option among the other methods because the rules loaded by this option have the Highest priority among the other rules loaded by parent theme style.css file or child theme style.css file). So if you have a CSS rule in Custom CSS textarea that changes the footer background color and then tried to change its bg color by editing child theme style.css file or parent theme style.css, your new rule will not change the actual footer bg color unless you add !important at the and of CSS rule ( and before the semicolon (;) ):
Well, enough learning and add this code to Custom CSS:
footer {
	background: #000;
}
.footersep {
    border-bottom: 1px solid #000;
}
.copyrights {
	border-top: 1px solid #000;
}
Where you change #000 with any Hex or RGB color ( you can even use color names i.e: red, blue, white.. etc)
the .footersep is the 1px height footer's top bar while the border-top: 1px solid #000; is the CSS rule that changes the color of the 1px height bar that is placed just below the .footersep bar. These two bars are responsible for the footer 3D effect ( not too much noticeable I guess :D ).

You can use this free service to Hex generate colors: http://www.w3schools.com/colors/colors_picker.asp

Not a bug actually, so I am going to move this thread to Help & Troubleshooting section.
