Featured Event Color Will Not Change After Update

    I’m getting a similar issue to the Colors Messed up After Update thread (https://theeventscalendar.com/support/forums/topic/colors-messed-up-after-update/#post-1408907). Featured Events are always blue, even when the color is set to something else in the Customizer. Any help on how to address this either via Customizer or in CSS to enter a custom color would be appreciated.

    Good afternoon Daniel and welcome to the Events Calendar Support forum!

    Thank you for reaching out to us.

    We are sorry to hear about that issue.
    I would love to help you with this topic.

    In a nutshell, could you try the recommendations of my reply here: https://theeventscalendar.com/support/forums/topic/colors-messed-up-after-update/#post-1409465

    Additionally, could you please send me a copy of the latest version of your WordPress theme and child theme via a link to a .zip file link (stored Dropbox or Google Drive) so that I can run some tests on my end ? I recommend a private reply for that purpose.

    Please ensure you are using the latest files as found on your actual website.
    This way I will get access to any updates or customizations you might have made.

    Hang in there!

    Geoff B.

    Good afternoon Daniel and happy new year!

    Thank you for the files.
    I was able to reproduce your issue on my end.

    Try adding the following CSS rule to your style.css file or in your Custom CSS metabox (with the color of your choice):

    #tribe-events-content table.tribe-events-calendar .type-tribe_events.tribe-event-featured {
        background-color: #dd3333 !important;
    }

    Let me know how that goes.

    Best regards,
    Geoff B.

    Hi Geoff,

    I added that CSS code to my style.css in my child theme, and it appears that it does not change anything. I also tried adding the CSS code to the Additional CSS section of the Customizer with the same results. Any other thoughts? If that works on your end, I could try playing around with it on my local test version.

    Good afternoon Daniel,

    Thank you for writing back.

    Actually, the code did change something… but only for the month view.

    Here is some more CSS to add to the mix (on top of the previous one)

    .tribe-events-list .tribe-events-loop .tribe-event-featured, .tribe-events-list #tribe-events-day.tribe-events-loop .tribe-event-featured, .type-tribe_events.tribe-events-photo-event.tribe-event-featured .tribe-events-photo-event-wrap, .type-tribe_events.tribe-events-photo-event.tribe-event-featured .tribe-events-photo-event-wrap:hover {
        background-color: #dd3333 !important;
    }

    Let me know how that goes.

    Best regards,
    Geoff B.

    Hi Geoff,

    Thank you for pointing out that the first fix changed the color in month mode. I completely missed that. And the second piece of code did the trick! Thank you! At first it did not do anything, but after closing my browser and re-checking the color changed for Photo View (which we use the most) and other views. Thanks again!
