Post Grid and Post Grid Slider Background in Footer

    Howdy,
    I am trying to insert a post grid slider or regular post grid into the theme footer (under the Theme Options -> Layout page).

    When I do so, it works fine, except that the background of the footer is the greyish colour, whilst the background of the slider is white. I noted that on this page (http://shortcodes.themeblvd.com/shortcodes/shortcodes-sliders/) you had a grey background on the post grid slider. Is that something I can do with an option somewhere?

    Thank you

    Hello,

    Things liks this are just CSS customizations you’d need to make to the theme. Can you you link me to a specific live example on your site of what you’re trying to style? And I can nudge you in the right direction on what CSS selectors you should be targeting for the specific scenario.

    Thanks for the quick reply Jason
    For an example, see http://www.burbankconsulting.com/
    The current slider is not included in the footer, but in the general layout (made with builder). The white versus grey background is the same effect though. Ideally it would be good if I could make that one post grid slider grey background to match the rest of the theme
    Cheers

    /* In general… */
    .standard-slider-wrapper .slides-wrapper {
    	background: transparent;
    	border: none;
    }
    
    /* Specific to the featured below area… */
    #featured_below .standard-slider-wrapper .slides-wrapper {
    	background: transparent;
    	border: none;
    }

    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.
