I’ve been able to change the epik-blue to #3478bd by replacing all the existing hex codes in the epik-blue section, but I seem to have gone overboard. This is a 404 page, but you can still see the that the hyperlinks are showing as a blue box. Where can I fix that?
Also, where do I download the new epik theme?July 26, 2016 at 11:24 pm #18861AndykevCustomer
First, what were you trying to accomplish? If you wanted to create a whole new color option (such as the blue, pink, red, gray), or were you only trying to change a couple of the colors here and there?
Creating a “new” color scheme can be done by taking one of the colors you’ll never use (maybe Pink?) and edit the heck out of it…knowing that if you goof it up, it won’t show simply by selection of another color in the admin customizer. You actually can create a new one by overwriting existing, or copying and then editing. It requires slight change to the color section in your Functions.php file (you add another color name to that section) and it will then become an opion choice in the drop down menu.
Go to your website and use “inspect element” in your browser. You can highlight all the sections, or pieces of each page and it shows you the .css code. You can change (edit) the code while using the inspect element and it shows you what your changes do. So you can see the color hex code, and you can either change it, or on the right side there generally is a color icon before the code. You can change the color there, even “grab” a color from elsewhere on the page to copy it.
The changes disappear when you refresh the page or exit the inspect..so take notes as to what you changed, then you go into your actual .css to apply the same change. It is actually fun.
I went into your page example and set all the colors back to #fff (white) to clean up the page to see what you had changed.
Your changing ALL the color code to the new color can sometimes not work, as some colors are for hover or backgrounds in different areas.July 26, 2016 at 11:35 pm #18862AndykevCustomer
You can download the new Epik theme if you purchased it from Appfinite..by using the “MY ACCOUNT” link at the bottom of this website.
FYI the new Epil ver. 1.5 has some big changes. The header is different, as is the color choices (gone)you now can use the color selector for infinite choices. Added are “fade in” effect, the header widgit is gone..there is a new menu for the footer (NICE!!) and many more changes.
The new version is VERY nice. However, switching themes can cause you to lose any customizatins you have added to your existing theme. Tour the demo of the new Epik. I updated one of my sites, but not another because I needed some of the features on the old version per the client.
