    The documentation says “You just need to select a primary color for your links and as background color for footer and some other elements, as well as a font color for text placed on those elements.” I understand this to mean the primary color will be the color of the footer. My footer background is a light gray even though I have the primary color set to orange. Is it malfunctioning or do I need to set the footer color some other method?

    Thank you,




    you’re correct – it doesn’t seem to apply the background color of the footer. To do this manually you can use that color code in your minimal-skin.css.

    Here you’ll find

    #footer {
    background: none repeat scroll 0% 0% #F8F8F8;
    border-top: 1px solid #EEEEEE;

    Just replace #F8F8F8 by your orange color code :)


    Thank you. I was able to change the boxed footer background to orange. I then changed the links and lines between them by changing the #888 to #fff. Now the footer headings are still too dark. Can you tell me where to change those?

    Thank you,




    use following code to change the color:

    #top #footer .widgettitle {
    color: #fff !important;


    The only instance of widgettitle I can find in the minimal-skin.css, is the following h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, h1 a, h2 a, h3 a, h4 a, h5 a, h6 a, #top .widgettitle, #top .widgettitle a{

    color:#555;. So do I add this somewhere or is it in another file?


    Never mind. I just changed the #555 in the above code to #fff and it worked. Thanks, Tina


    Glad you got it to work :)
