    Hello there. I seem to be having a slight problem with custom colors not showing up properly. I am using Incarnate Theme for the Library I work for, you can see this at The colors in question are those in the Frontpage template, mainly the slideshow and Text Area/Callout/Quotes section, where the bolded text, and H2 text seem to be frozen to #bbbbbb. This is not in any CSS file and is listed under the source code as “custom styles set at your backend”… where in the backend do I set this? None of my colors are FFFFFF…

    Under the Styling options for “Big Slideshow Area” I have the following set:

    Default Background: #972042

    Alternate Background: #000000

    Primary Color: #2f7999

    Highlight Color: #0f5a78

    Font Color: #ffffff

    Now the font color works just fine, till I bold text, I do not want the bolded text to change color, I want it to be white as specified.

    The bar below does the same thing, H2 and Strong are both #bbbbbb but I cannot for the life of me find out where to change this or why it is no the colors I specified.

    Links in the Main area are the same, the titles should be the link colors (as they are links) but they are not…

    How can I make these changes?


    Ok, I seem to have had some info messed up but the color change works, I just don;t want the bolded text to be Darker then regular text.


    Hi matthewkoster,

    It looks like you’ve found a work-around when viewing your site just now. If you wanted to overwrite it with a style, you could Try adding the following CSS to your Quick CSS (located under the Styling Tab in the theme options) or the custom.css file in the css folder of your theme files:

    #top .slideshow_color strong {
    color: #FFF;

    Or just for the home page:

    #top.home .slideshow_color strong {
    color: #FFF;




    Thank you very much, yeah I have been travelling through the site trying to get things to work the way the client wants.

    One suggestion that not only the client would like, but myself as well. The ability to click “Edit” when logged in and viewing the page… With a site that will have over 200 pages and several posts, its not easy to have to go to the admin section first, then have to find the post/page in question (clicking Next several times, etc). This can be an annoyance, where as an Edit link right on the page, you just click it, edit it, update and voila, your back to being live. Very important for the client.



    You find the Edit button when you are logged in as an admin on the very top of the screen. You can edit entry, pages etc.




    I realized this after I posted. Thank you very much,



    Good thing you found it. :)
