how do I change the top area (the first inch of background) gradient grey colours in the cloudy theme to a gradient light blue? I normally know how to change #colours in a css, but not in a CMS. I dont know which files or lines of code in the css or scss to change, or if it is in the third party/bootstrap somewhere ... as there are hundreds of options to choose from. I cant install compass because it says I need ruby, and cant find ruby anywhere.
I would also change the navigation bar from black, to a complimentary dark blue....not sure which line of code in which file to change either.
Look in the Sitename/themes/Cloudy/layout.css file. Look in the section for "container" or the like to set the background color or image. Look for the section titled "Navigation" in the same css file and look for "Primary Wrapper" and "Secondary" wrapper to set the background colors for the navigation bar.
thanks they were in theme/css/cloudybase.css.
the gradient was in a .html class under layout and was easy to change, thank you.
The navigation was more problematical as there were dozens and dozens of nav classes and I tested out changes to over half of them and it took 2 hours but still could not find the class that controlled the nav bar. so I will leave that to the too hard basket.
.navbar-inner controls the colour of the navbar.
