    Hi again


    I’d like to change the height of the featured item caption title background area, and also the colour (would like to make it blue similar to blues in logo). I’ve had a look through style.css. Would it be under .feature_excerpt? I tried changing the padding there but no result. I would like to make the height of the dark grey transparent area smaller with less padding above and below the text. Any help much appreciated!





    as far as I can see you changed the color already. To change the padding add following to custom.css:

    .boxed #featured .feature_excerpt {
    padding: 20px 20px 38px;

    Adjust the padding values to your needs. The first and the last value will effect the height.


    Thanks Dude, that’s worked beautifully. Is there any way I can change the colour from the transparent black to another colour? Have had a look through style.css and can’t find anything.


    It’s an image so you can’t change it with css only (or I wouldn’t recommend it because opacity attribute isn’t supported by old browsers). The featured_excerpt background code is:

    .feature_excerpt {
    background: url("../images/skin1/bg-trans.png") repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;


    Thanks, Dude. As it’s a .png file I can work with that very easily and replace it with one of another colour.




    Glad that I could help you :)
