  I can't find answers on your previous posts

I realise there's no refund with
the themes. So I want make sure I choose right theme, Can you please
answer these questions.

Can all background colours of the
various areas be changed, your webinar showed the main background
being changed, is it also easy to change the main body background and
the widget backgrounds on all the flex themes?

and can the colours of the date
backgrounds, be changed easily?

Can the fine lines around the clickable
menu buttons be added and removed easily

In 'flex Arial canvas' can the post
titles easily be changed to lower case.

I suppose I'm being a bit picky but
when funds are low the details are everything I expect the answers
are yes but it's nice to know before.

Hey Gordon -

In Flexx, only the background color can be changed through the dashboard features. The other changes, like the color of widgets, or the color of the nav bar, must be changed manually though the stylesheet and requires knowledge of CSS.

The date boxes are actually an image. So you would need to create a new image just like it in a new color and replace it. The image file is included in the download.

The fine lines cannot be easily removed, no.

Yes, you can have the blog post title be in all lowercase. Post titles are entered by you anyways so you can write them how you'd like. That demo just happened to use all caps. But you can certainly use all lowercase if you want.

Let us know if there's anything else!

My office manager purchased this theme for me and as a result of attempting to use it I have a few questions. 1. Do you have any tutorials on how to change the color of the navigation bar from black to anything else. 2. Is there a tutorial that assist with insuring that only a summary of the post appears on the home page or is there a workaround so that happens instead of the entire post appearing in whole on the home page. 3. Is there a reason some of the widget areas are totally non functional? Thank you
