    Hello Martin,

    Just add the styling you need to your custom child theme stylesheet to override the styles you need.

    Hello Martin,

    Sorry I was thinking you were a little more comfortable/aware with styling.

    If it’s only a couple elements you need to change, then provide an URL and let me know what you’re trying to change on that page and I should be able to provide more details on how you can target those elements.

    Otherwise…
    You would need to add the new class name, or the one you want to overwrite, to your custom stylesheet (in your child theme folder) or possibly add it under “Theme Setup > General Setup > Custom CSS/Javascript > Custom CSS”.

    Note: If this sounds overwhelming or you’re not sure what I’m referring to then I’d recommend finding someone that could help more hands on.with that. Would be easier/quicker to help.

    If it helps: Here’s a relatively simple CSS tutorial that may help explain how CSS works and other aspects.:

    I activated a Child Theme (Auction Theme 5)
    And i changed colors, BUT now:
    (see in picture)
    i will change the color from “1” but the color from “2” changing also.

    I found “bg-primary” who changed both.

    @Martin
    Honestly, posting an URL would be ideal.
    Images don’t show what’s going on behind the scenes.
