    I want to know if it’s possible to change the colors of the Sentence design for just one template.

    What I’d like to do is to create a new section of the site using the default template but to have a different set of colors for just that one section.

    Also, I’d like to know the name of the file that is the default template as I would use that as a basis for the new section.

    I’ve been looking this over and it seems that the elements I want to change are these:

    a different style for #sidebar-bg (which I could rename) to change the color of the sidebar)

    <?php
    echo avia_logo(AVIA_BASE_URL.'images/layout/logo.png'); (to change the logo image)
    ?>

    #top .site-background, html, body, .comment-reply-link, .main_menu .menu ul li, .title_container #searchsubmit:hover, .isotope .entry-content, .image_overlay_effect, .tagcloud a, .news-thumb, .tweet-thumb a, fieldset, pre, .container_wrap .social_bookmarks li, #info_text_header.minimized {
    background-color: #BDBDBD;
    } (which is the main background color in the header.php file is called with this code: <body id="top" <?php body_class(avia_get_option('blog_layout')." ".$style.$avia_config['font_stack']); ?>>

    Now, this is just a guess (and I’d like you to tell me if it’s true): couldn’t I create a different header.php file (say, say called header-2.php) and change the call to the header in my new template to:

    get_header(2);

    ?>

    If it’s true I can create a new header.php for this section I would need to know how to point to the new style in this php (to change the background color):

    <body id="top" <?php body_class(avia_get_option('blog_layout')." ".$style.$avia_config['font_stack']); ?>>

    Hi outtacontext,

    With css and the page body class you can target any single page and style it however you want. You can use a tool like Firebug for Firefox or Chrome/Safari’s Inspect Element to pick out each selector and then add the new css to the Quick CSS or custom.css file.
