  • Good morning.

    I am having trouble changing the color of the main navigation bar using a child theme of the Boston theme (using WordPress v4.1.1, Boston Theme v1.0).

    I set the new color in the theme’s customizations window, and the Preview text directly below the option shows the intended color:

    Menu: Appearance > Theme Options > Navigation
    Section: Text – Font
    Item: Fontcolor

    This works file with the Boston theme activated, but when I activate the child theme, it changes the color of visited links but not unvisited links.

    While the child theme is activated, I see with inspect element that the color I chose is applied via customcss.php (I’m guessing this is where custom settings from the theme are implemented):
    Rule: header .main-menu a { color: #D508D4; }
    File: [siteurl]/wp-content/themes/boston/7league/css/customcss.php

    But the chosen color is outranked by what seems to be the default setting:
    Rule: header .main-menu a { color: #EEE; }
    File: [siteurl]/wp-content/themes/boston/style.css

    With the Boston theme activated, the opposite is true, the custom setting outranks the default setting.

    The child theme was created using the instructions from the WordPress Child Themes page (http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes). So the 2 files I have in the child directory are style.css and functions.php.


    Theme Name: Torres Landscape Theme
    Description: Created by Diamante Design 2015
    Author: 7Theme.net
    Author URI: http://www.7theme.net/
    Template: boston
    Version: 1.0
    Tags: light, dark, two-columns, right-sidebar, responsive-layout, accessibility-ready
    Text Domain: Torres Landscape Theme

    /* =Theme customization starts here
    ————————————————————– */


    add_action( ‘wp_enqueue_scripts’, ‘enqueue_parent_theme_style’ );
    function enqueue_parent_theme_style(){
    wp_enqueue_style( ‘parent-style’, get_template_directory_uri().’/style.css’ );

    Can anyone tell me what I’m doing wrong here?

    Thank you for your help!


    sorry, its hard to say without seeing the source code, I think WordPress insert first the customcss.php file as stylesheet and then the stylesheet file from the child theme, so this will overwrite the styles from the customcss.php.

    Can you send us the link for the page (info @ 7theme . net ), then we can take a look at it.
