    Hi Jason,

    on the themeforest website your alyeska live demo shows three small icons top left of each of the columns.
    I would like to add that to my site as well. Can you let me know how do I do that?

    I would also like to change the colour of the header font. I kow it has to do with the CSS, but can you tell me the correct identifier?

    Kind regards,

    Joeri

    Hello Joeri,

    on the themeforest website your alyeska live demo shows three small icons top left of each of the columns.
    I would like to add that to my site as well. Can you let me know how do I do that?

    On the theme’s live demo I use the [icon] shortcode in the columns. — http://www.themeblvd.com/demo/alyeska/features/shortcodes/shortcodes-icons/

    And you can actually copy the live demo’s homepage by going to the Layout Builder and using the “Alyeska Homepage” as a starting point for the layout. — https://vimeo.com/32434067

    I would also like to change the colour of the header font. I kow it has to do with the CSS, but can you tell me the correct identifier?

    This is really going to depend on the location of the header you’re trying to change. It’s not going to be the same in all scenarios.

    For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – http://vimeo.com/20917974. The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.

    Thanks from your quick reply Jason.

    I’ve tried to insert the icon and it works though only when I define the three columns in my homepage as raw content. I have them currently set up as floating widget areas in order to include a header. When pasting the shortcode in the widget text box, the shortcode is displayed, not the icon.

    I’ll look at firebug later today.

    Kind regards,

    Joeri

    This doesn’t have anything to do with the theme specifically. WordPress doesn’t actually natively support shortcodes in widgets. It is possible to add this functionality though through your Child theme’s functions.php, however that would be a customization you’d need to make to the theme.

    You can do this via plugins like this one, as well.

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/shortcodes-in-sidebar-widgets/

    Keep in mind that shortcodes are not styled for widgets and sidebars. So it’s possible that not all of the theme’s shortcodes will look right when placed in a widget.
