    Helena Pro has some pretty great features. However, the “slider” based features: FEATURED SLIDER, FEATURED CONTENT AND LOGO SLIDER – all have default fonts that I would like to change to “Veranda, Geneva, sans-serif”. Can this be done? If so, how? I’m not a “coder” so please make it step by step, ok?

    Also, I would prefer it if the FEATURED SLIDER did not require a TITLE. If you do not put one in, then it defaults to ‘FEATURED SLIDE #1’ and ‘FEATURED SLIDE #2’… No option for having NO TITLE has been provided… and I find it very annoying. Any way to resolve this?

    @barrycotton: Go to => Appearance => Customize => Additional CSS and add the following CSS Code

    #feature-slider .entry-container, .entry-title, #featured-heading, #logo-slider-title {
    	font-family: Verdana, Geneva, San-seriff;
    }

    To remove featured slide#2 if you don’t want a title, you will need to add a bit of additional CSS
    Please post in your site URL and tell me on which featured slides you would like to remove the title and i will provide you the necessary CSS.

    Let me know if this solves your issue!

    Thanks, Skandha! The additional CSS you provided worked great. The issue I have with TITLES is the FEATURED SLIDER shown at the Helena them demo @ Helena Theme Demo

    The FEATURED SLIDER is shown just under the menu bar and the title area is a darkened black rectangle background with white text discussing “top 8 mountain getaways” and “Mountain Bar No-Bake Cookies” …

    However, when I fixed the font in the feature slide you provided me, this font was applied to all sliders so I would assume that any fix to remove titles from the FEATURED SLIDER would remove titles from all sliders and I don’t want this.

    As you scroll down the Helena Pro Demo, titles appear in the next gallery showing PHOTOGRAPHY, ROUTES BUILT FOR RIDERS, etc. Next, titles show in FEATURED CONTENT and again in the LOGO BAR labeled “Our Associates”, which is a TITLE, itself… as it changed to Verdana, Geneva, San-seriff when I entered the CSS you provided. For this reason, I have to assume that the same CSS applies to all SLIDER TITLES in the Helena Pro Theme… make sense?

    Skandha,

    Forgot to mention the site I’m working on is “under construction” and this is why I provided you with the Helena Pro Demo URL link to illustrate what I am talking about.

    Thanks,

    Barry

    @barrycotton: If you mean to remove the titles from only a selected featured slides, yes it is possible using a bit of CSS Code. But for that i will have to take a look at your site which you said is under construction.
    You can always post in your site URL when your site is live and i will be more than happy to help.

    Skahndha,

    I have removed the UNDER CONSTRUCTION status of my URL to receive your help. I have several issues as follows:

    1. FEATURED SLIDER: I don’t like the title’s black background because it detracts from the image. The actual titles are ok. Is there CSS to remove the background only?

    2. LOGO SLIDER: The background color for this slider is set to WHITE and I would like to change it to the TAN (#e2d9c0) that I am using on the page. Can you give me a way to change the background of the LOGO SLIDER to tan – #e2d9c0 ???

    3. On the HOMEPAGE (middle section) and on all pages (select any from the menu), the TAN text area is good but it is surrounded by WHITE. I’m not sure what that WHITE area is called in web building… but I really wish it were TAN #e2d9c0 – any way to make it TAN #e2d9c0 ???

    Really would appreciate it if you could help me fix these issues.

    Thanks,

    Barry

    Skanda,

    Wow! You’re great… everything solved that I asked for. However, I forgot to mention that on the HOMEPAGE, the middle section that lists Blog Posts picks up two with TAN background but two others have a white background. It seems to be an issue where half the page is TAN #e2d9c0 and the other half is white

    Is it possible to fix this?

    One final fix I would really appreciate.

    The FEATURED CONTENT SLIDER at the bottom of the HOME PAGE show text CENTERED… which does not read well. I would prefer it to be JUSTIFIED.

    Can you justify the text in the FEATURED CONTENT SLIDER?

    I really do appreciate your help, Skandha, Thanks again.

    Skanda,

    One minor issue I have noticed is that the EDIT OPTION that used to appear at the bottom of a page now seems to be obscured after the page background was changed from white to tan. If possible, access to EDIT at the bottom of pages would be very helpful.

    Thanks,

    Barry

    @barrycotton: Go to => Appearance => Customize => Additional CSS and add the following CSS Code.

    .grid-item:nth-child(2n+1) {
    	background-color:unset;
    }
    
    .entry-excerpt {
    	text-align:justify;
    	hyphens:none;
    }

    Let me know if this solves the issue!
    About the Edit Option i am not able to see any edit option even after changing the background color to white. Can you please elaborate the issue so that i can help.

    Thanks, Skandha! That worked!

    The EDIT option on a page does not always appear. However, it always showed after I updated and edit.

    The following sequence should make it show:
    1. Going to MY SITES at the upper left-hand corner of the menu.
    2. Select PAGES under MANAGE
    3. Then, for example, you select EVENTS… the first in the list
    4. There is no real content as it is just text placeholder so change anything and UPDATE.
    5. Before, an EDIT option always showed at the bottom center of the page. It was faint and not too obvious. When the page was white, it always appeared. Perhaps DEFAULT rather than WHITE would let you see it. I’m not sure. But it used to show up at the bottom of the page… after the text completed.

    Thanks,

    Barry

    @barrycotton: I won’t be able to see the edit option as i am visiting the site as just a user. The edit option only appears when you are logged in as the admin. I hope you get what i am trying to say.

    Not really sure if this is gonna work.

    Go to => Appearance => Customize => Additional CSSand add the following CSS Code.

    .edit-link a {
        color:black;
    }

    Let me know if the edit option is visible now.

    Hi Skandha,

    I have been having a lot of trouble accessing the link you provided to give you a review.

    I use WordPress.com and the support page your link directs me to is WordPress.org. I understand the difference between the two and everything you have done for me has been applied to my website on WordPress.com.

    I really want to give you an outstanding review but I can not LOG IN to WordPress.org. It says I have an account when I try to register but when I respond to LOST PASSWORD… it says it will email me a link, but it never does.

    My username is barrycotton and my email is [email protected].

    If you can resolve my login issues, I want to give you an outstanding review.

    Cheers,

    Barry
