    Title:
    Changing colors in Nov 07 default templates
    Content:
    I need to change the default Nov 07 template to have a red background everywhere it currently has a blue background. I'm not sure how to find the various graphics/elements/css entries that I'll need to replace. Is there any documentation that might help me figure out how to apply a color change to the whole template?

    I think nearly all of the blue styling is contained within images. You can go to the /assets/images folder to take a look at the images. Depending on what you want to do, it might be possible for you to open those images, edit the color to what you want and save them with the same filename. Then you wouldn't have to edit the CSS to reference your new images.

     

    There isn't any documentation on how to apply a new color scheme, but I would recomment using a tool like Firebug or the Web Developer Toolbar for Firefox. That will let you inspect HTML elements to figure out what images apply to which sections of the layout. It will drastically reduce the amount of time it will take you to restyle your site.
