Hi

Also are you using a default theme from the template in question?

Hi, The template in the images is "boost". I am using the default template and it looks like the theme is "zentea". However, I'm not happy with the background that's shown in a different site that uses "ecolife". It would be nice to know how to change it.
Thanks

Sorry but I have one other question that may be somewhat related.
I would still like to know the answer to my first question. But in addition, I would like to know how to hide some or all of those same buttons below the editor.
Thanks again

Oh boy! I made a mistake...
I don't actually care about the buttons at the "bottom".
However, I do want badly to selectively remove the buttons "above" the editor as in the attached image.

A user could really mess things up using the publishing, language and metadata buttons :(

I'll need to check with the developers on the background - It seems to depend on the background that is chosen in the settings which is a problem with the black as you say

Buttons wise are you looking to hide them for all front end users?

Yes, i guess that would work. It would be nice to turn them on and off (so to speak) when needed.

Are you needing this to be fixed urgently?

Looking at the button question

I think the only way would be to use css and display none

.edit.item-page .nav.nav-tabs li:nth-child(4) {display:none;}

the number (4) in this example being button 4 of the list element

I would also check it doesn't affect any other buttons in the edit interface

With the logo text I'd use one of the sites on the internet to create the look you want and paste the css across

#logo h1 a,
#logo h2 a,
#logo h3 a,
#logo h4 a,
#logo h5 a,
#logo h6 a {
color: #ffffff;
text-shadow: 4px 4px 2px rgba(150, 150, 150, 1);
}

for example

Thanks so much...
I just pasted your code at the top of the theme's css file and it worked. Is that the best place to put it?
I'm a noob and concerned that by changing the css on this shadow issue and the buttons that my changes will be lost when I update the template.

For customisation - we have this documentation

docs.joomlabamboo.com/zen-grid-framework-4/theme/customisation

I'd suggest adding it to the custom.css file
