Changing Bootstrap Blog Sidebar Colors

I'm trying to change the color scheme in the bootstrap blog skin to have white text on a darker background. I changed the color options in "custom settings" on the skin page in the back office. This worked perfectly for the main part of the page but the colors in the sidebar did not change.

I am not very familiar with css but I took a look at the style.css file in the bootstrap blog skin folder. There are some references to the sidebar container, but I don't see anything that seems to pertain to the sidebar's color scheme.

How do I go about changing the sidebar's color scheme?

I'm running v6.8.2 stable.

Thanks

Hi @mark_c,

Please, can you share a screenshot of the current color scheme that you already changed on some parts of the web and want to replicate to the sidebar?

If you haven't read this page: http://b2evolution.net/man/howto-add-custom-css, please do it. So, if you tell us what do you want to change, maybe we can give you some pointers to do it, using the technique mentioned in the link.

Thank you.

Much appreciated. I will take a look at the section of the manual that you reference. To illustrate the problem, here are three screenshots -

default.jpg is the bootstrap blog on my site with default colors.
custom.jpg is the skin with customized colors.
custom_settings.jpg is the skin screen showing what the colors were changed to.

My site is photo oriented and I'd like for a darker grey background. I have three public collections using the bootstrap blog, photogalleries and bootstrap photoblog skins. My goal is to get the page and font colors consistent between the three of them. Bootstrap photoblog is working well with the custom settings. Photogralleries is set to its default settings since I used its color scheme as the template for the other two collections.

Thanks!

This is to be considered a bug which we need to fix.
