      Aspire Theme: Front Page 2 Widget (the opt-in box)


      My question is, how can I modify the characteristics of the Front Page 2 widget in the Aspire Theme? This is the widget for the opt-in box.

      If you look at my site now, you will see it working as intended but I would like to modify the spacing between the text and the opt-in form as well as the color of the background (to differ from theme accent).

      I am currently using the Genesis eNews Extended plugin for the opt-in, but I want to change it to the java script (or short code) provided by ConvertKit so that the success message can be displayed there. The issue I am having is that the spacing above and below the opt-in fields are wide. I realize that this may be caused by the code on the ConvertKit side, but it would be nice to have the option to adjust it in the theme.

      I tried to find the code for this in the editor, but I am not sure what I am looking for. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Here is my website:

      Thank you!

        You can find the CSS to make your customizations for the Front Page #2 widget on line 1569 (in the style.css file).

        You can change the background color directly from the CSS –

        .front-page-2 .image-section {
        	background: #fa5738;
        	padding: 60px 0 20px;

        Or you could use the Customizer to change the color, but that changes the default theme color for the whole site (links, background, etc)

        Line 1569 – 1604 covers the front page 2 widget CSS. If you’re using a 3rd party plugin then you’ll have to come up with some custom code if you want to customize how it displays on the site.

          Thank you Wes. I made several adjustments to my liking, it was quite helpful to know where the code is located. I am still having trouble with the background color though.

          I did change the default color with the Customizer for all the default things that I wanted to change. I’d like, however, to have this widget background set to a different color. None of the css changes have any effect… I think the Customizer color choice is overriding it. Is there anything I can do to make this change?
