Colours/styles of each section section and static block option « Community

Welcome, guest!

Feel free to read the blog, browse for themes, or join the club.

The community forums are currently being phased out. At the end of February or early March 2012, you will no longer be able to post here. This is because the entire site is being restructured. Please use the main forums for discussions.

Colours/styles of each section section and static block option

  1. I think it would be nice if you could click on some options in the options panel that would let you choose:

    colors andor styles of
    - excerpt blocks (background, text size, header style , link colours, colour of text, line spacing, padding, etc)
    - feature blocks (background, text size, header style , link colours, colour of text, line spacing, padding, etc)
    - general page style except the above (background, text size, header style , link colours, colour of text, line spacing, padding, etc)
    - header section (background, text size, header style , link colours, colour of text, line spacing, padding, etc)
    - footer section style (background, text size, header style , link colours, colour of text, line spacing, padding, etc)

    under the feature and excerpts i added my own static section. i can add multiple "blocks" in there via html i input there, but instead, what about adding to the options page like an empty checkbox with an antry place for html, check and activate it, it makes a block, you can add up to say - 1 to10 and be able to control which pages they show up on.

    in visionary i am not a fan of the page refreshing and i have to click to get to where i was if i want to edit it right after saving. i would rather not have that happen and jus tthe sections slide and stay slid (open) but thats just me.

    anwyay, that is my 2 cents.

  2. While cool in theory, wouldn't this defeat the purpose of Theme Hybrid's child theme concept? Or, the idea of a stylesheet?

  3. Well, I can see the part where it would defeat the purpose.. but I also thought it would be nice to be able to edit the different colours on the fly from the options page in the theme. I did do it via the style sheet and child theme... but instead of just clicking a square and choosing a colour I wanted for each in the options, I had to hand code it. Yes, I made the effort, I was merely suggesting it to make it.. easier and different than other themes.

    (you can see where I edited it to change the colours.. the pages drop down menu across the middle top is now a darker background, the red I have substituted #66000.. and I have made some other changes... so you can see I did follow it that way.. I just thought it would be neat to choose headers, colours, backgrounds, etc on the fly.. it would be different, very handy, very useful. I hope you can tell though that I am in no way against editing it on my own. - ie the footer which Is still incomplete too)

  4. I would also have to parrott this for the options theme. I like the theme.. but analogous colour like that needs contrast for headers and links, and multiple styles for links. As the other one, I can do it.. but it takes time learning different themes and creating different child themes. This is one feature that I think might could go across the board for multiple themes, but again, only my 2 cents.

  5. Aside from my previous argument, there's no real way to do it well.

    For example, let's say you wanted to style all basic links. You'd have to have four options for this:

    a:link
    a:visited:
    a:hover
    a:active

    Then, would you only stick with color? How about text-decoration, text-align, background, border, and a multitude of other parameters you could add. Where does one draw the line when it comes to customization? And, we're just talking about basic links here. Not even individual links for each section, which can look entirely different from each other.

  6. I do see what you mean. There really isnt a way to do it well. I would have to sit down, and go through everything and look in detail. I might make that a project, you never know lol. Right now, I am trying to get a few sites up and working, then I will take a better look when I get back from a road trip I have to do this weekend.

  7. I wouldn't even know where to go to change the general font color, without paying $25, that is ... which I don't have. Going back to some basic theme, that I can handle.

    CSS is CSS, no matter what theme you're using. Changing font color is just as hard or easy in one theme as it is in another (unless it's filled with admin panel options to control that).
