TOPIC: Unable to change the color of template

Unable to change the color of template 31 May 2017 18:09 #10294

Hi, I installed the jf events quickstarter on my website.

I wished to change the color scheme of the template - the header, the footer, the module colors and the text highlights to a lighter color say sky blue.

I started off trying to change the header and footer colors, but I just cannot seem to get it working.

I tried editing the template.css file from the joomla editor, changing the lines to these -

.footer {
background-color: #00ff00;
color: #fff;
font-family: 'montserratlight';
padding: 90px 0 50px;
}

.header {
background: url(../images/header-bg.png) center top;
background: rgba(0, 255, 0, 0.9);
position: fixed;
width: 100%;
z-index: 9;
}

but the colors do not change.

I even resorted to replacing the modified files using FTP.

What's weird is that the template works even if I rename the template.css file to template.css_bak. I suspected some caching going on, but i cleared the template cache from backend and it still won't work.

Here is the website - www.orthocarekolkata.com.

Please look into the matter if you can. Thank you.

Hi, it turns out that the problem was being causes by the browser. Clearing the cookies/site cache after editing the template makes the changes visible on the front end.

I have since figured out how to edit the rest of the stuff. Thank you for the awesome template!
