    Hi again

    on

    http://africaaustralasiaconference.com/

    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!

    Thanks

    Hey,

    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.

    Cheers
