    Hi guys,

    Im sure this is an easy one but not for me because I dont know CSS.

    Can anyone tell me how to make the title of the event appear blue? As in a link.

    For example the links on this page are all blue, how can I make the black title appear blue also?

    The reason I want to do this is because being black may make it hard for users to spot that its a link.

    cheers

    Hey Sebastian. You should be able to modify this in the events.css file; if you know the color you want to change, just scroll through that file and find the appropriate locations, then swap it out accordingly. Remember that you’ll need to do a template override procedure (detailed in the first “Customization” question at our FAQ: https://theeventscalendar.com/support/faqs/) correctly so your work doesn’t get override next time you update the plugin. Hope that helps.

    Hi Rob,

    I got no problems setting it up as a child etc as I also purchased the old ECP plugin.

    But like I said I am hopeless at CSS. I literally need to be told what line # or code where what I want to change is lol. I dont know what locations mean what etc.

    If you could just provide what I need to edit in the style.css i can take it from there, thanks

    Hey man. It looks like the different views for the event titles (in list view, grid view, venue list, etc) are controlled between lines 40 and 87. In terms of colors you can use, there are some good options at this site: http://www.december.com/html/spec/color.html/

    Hope that helps. Let me know if not.
