New user here – basic coding support

  • SaoWolfe


    Hi all,
    I’m a non-techie new to buddypress and have created a site for members of my non-profit organization (health field). I only have basic coding knowledge so am hoping someone can just point me in the right direction.

    If you take a look at an example of a user profile on my site, at you’ll see that the colour scheme of my site theme, as it shows up in this table, is not working well. Where would I go to fix this? I can probably figure it out if someone could just point out which php file to work in. Is it in my theme, or in Buddypress also?

    Thanks for support. I would really appreciate it!

    You can adjust colors in your active theme’s style.css file. You will need to know some CSS probably. However, it is best to use a child theme so that when you update your theme, the style changes will not get overwritten. Not sure if you already have one in place, but here’s some more info about that:



    Agree with Sarah here. You gotta edit CSS in your stylesheet. Your current theme’s CSS is loading from: /wp-content/themes/stylish-v1.1.1/styles/

    In there you will find a number of stylesheets. But like Sarah said, you’re better off adding one stylesheet into a child theme and editing CSS there. Either way you shouldn’t have to edit any PHP just to change the colors. It’s all CSS.

    Also, use Google Chrome’s inspector to find which styles to edit. It will make your life so much easier.



    You can also use a plugin and add css



    Thank you all. I really appreciate your time and kindness. I’m going to attempt to make the changes based on your advice. Hopefully I’ll be back on here to say “Thanks – it worked”, and not Help!!!”. Thanks again from a newbie.
