Dear All,

In GeneratePress free theme, can we actually change the colour in the the content and sidebar? The default is showing as white but I would like to change this colour to match with the background colour.

Is this possible or only the paid version allows that?

Thanks and appreciate your experience sharing.

Regards,
Richard

Hi Richard,

How about changing the background color to match the content and sidebar. This can be achieved with the free version.

Thank you Jack. I think white is good as well. Minimalist feel I suppose.

Hey Richard,

When you cannot find the training you need by searching WA (in the search textbox at the very top of this page) then it is best to seek out the help from Google.

See screen print below...

Hope you find this helpful.

Hi Trish, thank you so much! Will check in Google first before I ask next time...

Looks like it might be possible but I will have to go inside the theme editor to find the place to change the color Hex code to be the same as the background colour that I have set.

Know what might be best Richard... to go with the default colors and fonts, and focus more on your website content.

Over the years, I have discovered that the theme developers KNOW what works BEST for their themes, thus they make those settings their default settings.

You will find that you may make more money sooner when you focus on providing quality answers to your niche's biggest headaches rather than trying to take a great theme and tweak it six ways to Sunday.

You CAN do this making money online stuff... I KNOW you can!

Hi Trish, I can't thank you enough for this advise. Indeed I have been spending much time thinking and trying on the themes and not so much focusing on my niche content.

I'm currently using an Article Lite theme. I kind of like its color tone and fonts etc just, just that I got worried about performance. Do you think I should just stick to using it first and just focus on content?

Thanks.

Regards
Richard

Yes, focus on content, make sure all of your images used are fully optimized BEFORE uploading. Then every so often (and I stress every so often here) DO check your website for performance.

Make sure to limit the use of plugins too, as that alone can make a BIG difference. I USED to use a contact form for my contact page, but... not anymore.

Here's what I do now to remove the need of that plugin: The only reason I labeled this training like it is, is that SO many members were complaining about the spam they were receiving from using that form.

Thanks Trish.

I check performance on my post via PageSpeed Insight, Pingdom, and GTMetrix earlier. Would that suffice? Checking is one thing, I have no experience on how to solve any issues that may arise.

Thanks for the tip on limiting the use of plugins. I have Contact Form 7 activated. But I realise I have not been using it as I haven't thought about having a contact form in a contact page. My theme was recommending it work well with Contact Form 7 and hence I just activated it. I do get some spam mails in my website email account but I'm not sure if it is coming from the contact form plugin or because I communicated my email somewhere before (recall I did some performance checks on my website and it asked for email...).

You only need to use ONE... and PageSpeed Insight is the one most recommnended.

Using all 3 will only serve to confuse you.

I DO have a method for visitors to contact me on all sites I own. Most visitors won't feel comfortable if you do not have a contact form. However, that is up to you.
