....from a newbe....

I suspect this is easy, if I knew where to look!

Q; Where do I go to change the default color for H3 element in the product description?

Many thanks in advance for assistance!

CC 5.1.5 (site still in development)

Depends on the skin you are using. If patterned after a stock skin, you should find it set in the skin's stylesheets folder under common.css unless the skin has various color choices, then it may be in common.css or in the skin color stylesheet folder usually in layout.css. If you still have trouble finding it, post a link to an online version of the site and I'll have a look.

Hi markscart:

Thanks you for your response and greeting from SW Newe Mexico.

I am using a standard CC template (Kurouto) and noted two instances of "H3" in skin/Kurouto/styles/common.css:

}

.sidebar > div > h3 {

background: #595755 repeat-x;

border-top: 1px solid #4F4F4F;

color: #FFF;

height: 26px;

line-height: 26px;

padding: 0px;

text-indent: 4px;

text-transform: capitalize;

}

and:

}

div.category_product h3 {

margin: 5px 0px;

text-indent: 2px;

}

But neither of these seem to deal with color for H3.

Likewise in layout.css there is only one instance of H3:

}

.sidebar > div > h3 {

background-image: url(../../images/green/h3_background_gradient.png);

}

Which again does not seem to deal with the color of H3 element.

So, again, I am a newbe. What do you suggest?

Regards,

The .sidebar > div > h3 does address color for h3 in sidebar, color is set as white (color: #FFF)

Since there seems to be no style to set a color for h3 specifically in stylesheet, the color will be the default text color. You can set a different color for h3 in the stylesheet by doing this:

h3 {

color: #cacaca;

}




or,




h3 {

color: silver;

}




In both of the above examples, I'm assigning "silver" as the color for h3, you get the idea. Now, this will set h3 color for every instance of h3 across the site, if you want to isolate a particular class of h3 on product page you'll have to do a little more.



In Karouto, the product description area has a title using h2:




<h2>{$LANG.catalogue.product_info}</h2>




Now if I truly understand your question, you are wanting to set a color for h3 within the product description only, is that correct? If so, note also, that styling can be changed in the wysiwyg editor where product description is entered. Be aware of that.



The product description is coded into Karouto like this:




  <div id="product_description">

   {$PRODUCT.description}

<p><strong>{$LANG.catalogue.product_code}</strong>: {$PRODUCT.product_code}</p>

  </div>




So, to affect any occurrence of h3 only within product description, you can try adding this to the stylesheet:




#product_description h3 {

color: #700000;

}

Note that I have written it to use a dark red color, just use your own color in place of #700000

That should work for you, as long as the color is not altered in wysiwyg editor which would override the stylesheet.

Let me know if I have misunderstood your intent, hope this helps.

Markscarts:

You understood me perfectly! Many thanks.

On styling with the WYSIWYG editor (CKEditor): my goal is to use standard elements in 99% of all descriptions and use CSS for styling. This way when my client sez "...for Christmas season I want all product descriptions red on a silver background" I can do it with two CSS changes. I will use the WYSIWYG editor for creating truly uniquely formatted descriptions when this is (rarely) required.

- Cheers.
