    I edited custom.css to to include body { background: #000000; }, but this change is not reflecting in the page.

    Overall I am not too happy with this theme. It takes a lot of discovery to change simple things.

    I had made one mistake. I had forgotten to update the file. That problem is now cleared.

    However, I am still challenged in making overrides to the original CSS, so I ended having to edit the original CSS itself, which I know is not the right thing to do

    For example, I want to change the font color of the items in the main menu. I found the CSS reference using Inspect Element in Google developer tool, but when I add that override in the custom.css file it is not updating. May be the syntax is

    Here is what I see in the layout.css

    #primary-menu li a {
    color: #ffffff;
    }

    In custom.css, I add an entry

    #primary-menu li a {
    color: #color: #ec5e57;
    }

    and the new color is not getting reflected.

    thanks

    The correct syntax is

    #primary-menu li a {
    color: #ec5e57;
    }

    If you use google developer tool to find the CSS property, it will easy to customize.

    Can please tell me your website link? I will send you the custom CSS soon.

    You can also add the custom CSS into ForClover Options > Custom styles > Custom CSS field.

    BY THE WAY, it’s a white style theme, I’ve not provide the option to change it to another color style, so if you change the background of the page, you may also need to change some other styles like text color, border color and so on, so generally, this is a customization issue.
