    Hello! I am having trouble editing my footer – I have added all of the appropriate widgets into my static block. I am only creating one dark footer and have the following widgets: Text Block (from original theme code), links (from original theme code), Twitter and Mailchimp Newsletter.

    Two questions:

    How do I make the twitter content white since it is in the dark footer block?

    The links I exchanged into the original code is doubling up in a grey font in the section across from the copyright section? No idea why this is happening as it is showing up perfectly in the Widgetised Sidebar of footer.

    Is there anyway to attach a screenshot?

    Hopefully this makes sense… Please help!

    HI Eva,

    Finally updated to a server. I have additional questions and hope it is not too much!

    1) How do I make the twitter content logo white since it is in the dark footer block?

    2) The links I exchanged into the original code is doubling up in a grey font in the section across from the copyright section? Need to delete this. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1eQ8Nyg5rYfcy04SFdRbUZzYXc/view?usp=sharing

    3) Where can I update the contact form descriptions and add one or two additional entry sections?

    4) I also need to update elements of my portfolio section but am not sure how to:

    a) change the title from “Recent Works” to “Additional Classes and Workshops” – https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1eQ8Nyg5rYfdWxKc0RuUWhnN0E/view?usp=sharing

    b) As well as delete the “View Larger” option so it only reads “More Details”
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1eQ8Nyg5rYfcUE5YkV3U051bXM/view?usp=sharing

    5) Lastly, how do I change the color of the boxes on the homepage banner?

    Update:

    I figured how to update the Contact form… I downloaded the Contact Form 7 Plugin but now my formatting is completely off. I am hoping that the form rows each runs to the edge of that element with the “Which Classes are you interested in” section much shorter so that it squares off in that section…Please advise..

    Hello,

    We’re sorry for a long delay.
    1. Please add this code in custom.css:

    .main-footer .fa-twitter::before {
        color: white !important;
    }

    How to create custom.css you can watch in this tutorial (it’s for Legenda theme but the process is the same).

    2. You can remove those links in Appearance > Widgets > Footer Links area.

    3. Use this code in custom.css:

    span.wpcf7-form-control-wrap input[type="text"], span.wpcf7-form-control-wrap textarea {
      width: 100%
    }

    4. a). You can change “Recent Works” in the file wp-content/themes/royal/single-etheme_portfolio.php

    b). You can disable lightbox in Theme Options > Portfolio > Enable Lightbox For Projects > Off.

    5. Add this code in custom.css file:

    .university-border .wpb_text_column {
      background-color: green !important;
    }

    Write your color value.

    Regards,
    Eva Kemp.

    Hi Eva.. I am having trouble with your support. Please advise..

    1. I watched the video but my custom css section is only showing as default.custom.css and is not updating the code you are giving me.

    2. You can remove those links in Appearance > Widgets > Footer Links area. — I don’t want to remove the links.. only the DUPLICATE part… The links I exchanged into the original code is doubling up in a grey font in the section across from the copyright section? https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1eQ8Nyg5rYfcy04SFdRbUZzYXc/view?usp=sharing

    3. custom css is not working

    4. a). You can change “Recent Works” in the file wp-content/themes/royal/single-etheme_portfolio.php — Can you be more specific as to where this file is?

    b). You can disable lightbox in Theme Options > Portfolio > Enable Lightbox For Projects > Off. — I don’t want to disable the entire thing I want to edit.. ONLY to take off the “View Larger” option so it ONLY reads “More Details”
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1eQ8Nyg5rYfcUE5YkV3U051bXM/view?usp=sharing

    5. Custom css is not working.

    Regarding the 4.b. questions. This is something I would like to disable to. It is in the Blog section. Found it in theme-functions.php on line 1513, but didn’t manage to disable it without breaking the site. The reason for this is, that there is no point having the thumbnail as ‘view large’ :), but would still want the ‘more details’ option.

    Thanks,
    George

    Hello @taylormontague,

    1./3. You need rename default.custom.css to custom.css. Connect to your server via FTP and enter the directory wp-content/themes/royal to do this.

    2. Please clarify what exactly you want to achieve. What code should be removed?

    4. a) The file is on a server where your site is hosted. You need connect to your server via FTP. Ask your hosting provider how to do this.

    b) Edit the file wp-content/themes/royal/content-portfolio.php in line 45 and remove the code <?php if($lightbox): ?><a href="<?php echo etheme_get_image(get_post_thumbnail_id($postId)); ?>" class="btn btn-black xmedium-btn" rel="lightbox"><span><?php _e('View large', ETHEME_DOMAIN); ?></span></a><?php endif; ?>

    Best regards,
    Jack Richardson.

    Hello @lindo_web,

    I’ve commented the code <a href="<?php echo etheme_get_image(); ?>" class="btn btn-black xmedium-btn" rel="pphoto"><span><?php _e('View large', ET_DOMAIN); ?></span></a> in line 74 in the file content.php in your child theme.
    Please check Blog page now.
