I'm running into a lot of problems adjusting Acquia Marina, so I thought I would reach out for help before I hit my wit's end! What I'm trying to accomplish is changing the colors in Acquia Marina and applying a background image to the header graphic.
ATTEMPT 1: Create New Acquia Marina Theme (Acquia New)
My first attempt was to simply find and replace all of the hex color numbers.
e1e1e1 --> 99cc99
27638c --> 003300
94ce18 --> 196828
Seemed innocent enough. My next step was opening each individual graphic up in Photoshop to match my color scheme.
My third and final action was to apply background image with the code outlined in another forum topic. http://acquia.com/node/789284
Somehow, I ended up with this mess: http://webdev.unt.edu/transferinstitute/help/AcquiaNew.jpg
The arrangement of all the blocks were completely lost and my header menu bar has disappeared.
ATTEMPT 2: Use Sub-Theming Method (Acquia Edited)
This attempt *almost* worked.
However, we still have a blue color that I don't want showing up when I hover the title of the article, the links on the tabs are also still an unwanted blue, the header background is gone, and the icon in the navigation block is missing.
But wait... there's more!
When I'm in my Administration menu, the navigation block icon and the header image are peculiarly present. We still have the blue color in the menu text (which is utterly bizarre because that color has been completely ghosted in the CSS) but at least SOME things have been accomplished.
Another thing worth noting is the missing icons and header only applies for Firefox. In IE, I can see them fine. (But, unfortunately, as soon as I hide the logo and site name, the header collapses and the background image disappears.)
- Why are their differences in appearance when in the Administration menu verses the normal website?
- Why is the menu text blue when that color exists nowhere in the stylesheet and caching has been turned off?
- Why do I lose all the block positioning in the Acquia New theme when only color was adjusted in the CSS?
- How can I keep the header from collapsing when I remove the logo and the site name?
Thank you for your help. I tried to look wherever I could online for help, but I was coming up with nothing but a headache!
Here's the site:
I attached the stylesheets in zips. I understand if you can't download them, I just don't have many more options on this computer.
