A few customisation questions

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Hey guys, love the theme. A couple of questions:

1) I'd like to know if it's possible to customise the top bar (where the main menu is) in the single page layout. I'd like to add a background image in place of the menu items.

2) The top menu bar is overlapping the Grid 1 item, how can I fix that?

3) How do I adjust the padding of the custom html modules? For example, the 'Philanthropy Non Profit' panel, how could I reduce the width of the text area and increase the padding between the text and the edge of that panel top and bottom?

Are you reducing the width to add other content alongside it?

No, purely to get the text to align consistently with the text in Grid 1 and Grid 5

Sorry, I was a bit confused. No, I just want to adjust the line width for typographic reasons.

Hi

You could target this a number of ways

#grid2wrap .zen-spotlight

- this is the gridwrap for the row that contains grid5

or

#grid5 .module-inner

which is targeting inside the module itself

It sounds like you would want to use padding

And would that be dropped into the them CSS? I'm not having any luck replacing that in Template.css, custom.css or the theme css

That would be the custom.css

I can't seem to see that style in that file

What seems to be cropping up a lot is server caching

In particular siteground as their caching is enabled by default

If you have added the style this may explain the problem

I had accidentally added a colon directly after the id selector. Half an hour fighting with Joomla and it turns out to be one stupid character.

Just to add, I think the problems I've had is that I hadn't quite familiarised myself with the new template backend. Now that I'm figuring it out I think it's amazing. The functionality you guys have added in is fantastic, thank you.

I remember a while back muttering to myself about a dodgy colon and my sister thought I was ill :)
