    Hi, I’ve managed to put all my own colours on the Encounters theme. It’s awesome!
    But there is one element that I just cannot change. It is a thin line of 8 px below the header image, I want it in the same colour as my content background, but it simply remains grey. I have tried to change that in the code directly (I don’t even know if that is possible?), it changes for a second, but when I click another page or anything else, it turns grey again.
    I’m hoping you can help me out with that.

    Good morning!
    That is one thing I didn’t realize I left out of the option settings which I will need to add on the next theme update. But basically that styling is found around line 298 of the style.css file and looks like this:

    #showcase-wrapper, #banner-wrapper, #wpheader-wrapper {
    background-color: bf7b7b;
    background-repeat: repeat;
    border-bottom: 8px solid #d9dee1;

    The border bottom is the one with the colour #d9dee1

    One more note: I will respond to your facebook posting about the layerslider video tutorial which is here:


    Thanks! I’ll try to adjust it!


    I’m sorry, I adjusted the colour, but the theme wouldn’t take it, so I’m still left with that grey border… could I delete it without ruining anything?

    Also for the slider tutorial, thanks, I found it. One thing you didn’t explain though is how you get that text on those pictures (in the highlighted large font)…

    Today is your lucky day…I just added the colour setting option to the Theme Options for that grey bar. Please contact me using the Email Support form or my Contact form and I will send you the new version of Encounters (1.5.7).

    As for the Layer Slider tutorials…the tutorial is only to setup the slider with the sample one I have on the demo site. Unfortunately teaching how to use it is not part of the theme because this plugin is an optional third party item and any support such as documentation will have to be from the developer. For Encounters, the only thing I did was create a style template for it which the tutorial is really meant to show how to install that, but also use the import file to get the user setup with the exact demo I have. The rest will be up to the end-user.


    Can I install the new version without risking to lose anything on my blog?

    Sushil Adhikari

    You should be fine if you did not make changes to the core theme files. Updating third party themes (like mine) are done by overwriting the existing theme files. Before you do that though, always download a backup copy of your theme first before doing it. It’s also a good idea to maintain regular site backups anyway; check out VaultPress as an option.


    Well, I did change the colours… is that something that belongs to the theme core files?
    and I installed the Layer Slider… these things…
    will I have to redo that ?

    Sushil Adhikari

    Things will be lost with Core file changes which means physically changing the files of the theme itself, including the style.css. This is why it’s best to always use a child theme instead if one plans to make any core theme file changes, so that you can make theme updates when they come available. Updates only affects the parent theme but not the child theme.

    However, anything you changed from the Theme Option settings (the theme customizer like colours), these won’t be affected.

    Isn’t making websites fun! :cheer:


    Well, I did manage to change the colour of that border after all… it just didn’t show up immediately. Thanks anyway!

    It was more likely a browser cache which eventually cleared out. Cheers!
