Changing padding, shadow and color of footer box and featured area.

  • Creator
  • #7252

    For the purpose of this question, please reference the following site:

    I would like to get rid of the box area around the images in the featured area and footer. I’d like to tighten up the padding as well. I would also like the color of this area to match that of the rest of the site. The featured area is lighter and the footer is darker. Can this be done. I’ve not been able to locate either of these in the CSS.

    You’d target #bottom .footer_content from your Custom CSS. You’d override the box shadow (set to none), border (set to none), and background color (set to transparent) properties on this selector. Then, the padding belongs to #bottom .footer_content .container.

    [edit] Note: Because you’re using the dark color style, you’d actually be targeting for the color part of things like this:

    .content_dark #bottom .footer_content { ... }


    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 – 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.
