How Customisable Is Redbud And Other Ithemes?redbud customisation
Posted 11 February 2013 - 11:31 PM
I'm just starting out in the blogging/website world and have been searching for a premium theme that I like, Redbud caught my eye, coupled with the fact that ithemes is listed in Wordpress commercial themes list. I'll be using Wordpress and Bluehost but I haven't found a 'stock' Wordpress.org theme that I like 'as is'.
Forgive my "green-ness", but how customisable is Redbud (or other ithemes child themes), particularly for a newbie? For instance, can I change colours of elements of the site and choose my own fonts? Can I do things like that without having any coding or HTML knowledge? I hope to learn more about, but for now I just want to get going with a good-looking, user-friendly theme!
BTW, a couple of my 'pre-sales' questions were answered already by searching your forum,, such as Builder being included with the child theme - thanks. One clarification though: I see that purchase only gives support for one year. What is the cost for ongoing support after the first year if I purchase this theme? Is it one-time or an annual cost?

Colours of certain elements can be changed using Style Manager. See Style Manager's scope/limitation. For everything else, you can use a tool like Firebug to help you arrive at the needed CSS code and place it in style.css.
It is possible to add fonts in Style Manager. @font-face and Google fonts can also be added with little effort. See this codex article. It is meant for Rotating Text - but the overall idea still holds valid.
My colleague will answer this question for you.
