Help changing background color on Calendar

Unread post by laryheller » Fri Aug 26, 2011 4:08 pm

I saw the comment on changing the css code to change colors. But for those who are not CSS savoy, it is more of a challenge. The calendar has taken on the site colors, which the back ground for the calendar is dark. How can I change this to white back ground?

Would it be possible to add a CSS color picker for ease?

Thanks!

A colour picker couldn't help here as it's all theme dependent and would likely need more than colours to fix. Please provide a link to your site so that I can advise on CSS code to add such that this issue can be corrected for you.

Just taken a look at your site, can't see my Calendar in use there, seems to be another product?

Under the calendar it says...

Told you the look is different :)

Whoops! There are days that I really should get more sleep. You are correct. I gave you the wrong link. I transposed the numbers. Here is the correct link. http://troop579.org/calendar.html

Sorry about that.

Thanks for you time.

Good morning!

Have you had an oppurtunity to check out the calendar on troop579.org yet? I also noticed today that the upcoming events in the side bar are not showing up. I think I have the appropriate boxes ticked.

Thanks

Sorry for the delay, been crazy busy at work. You'd need to add a background-color attribute to the following CSS classes, you said white so it would be background-color:#FFFFFF; to the following;

.day-without-date
.day-with-date

Hope that helps!

Kieran,

Once I figured out what you wanted me to do. It Worked! Can't thank you enough for your time and effort with this.

I have one more question for you. :)

I used to have a 14 day event list on the sidebar. Now it doesn't show. The box is checked yes in the Calendar options. Do I need to put a text widget in the sidebar for that?

Thanks!

Lary
