    OK, will try to keep this simple. Using Start Up Pro and just in the beginning on things. URL http://www.indoorfootballdigest.com/fever2/

    Starting from top to bottom

    1. Need to remove included nav bar. I managed to remove part of iot, but the background remains. How do I remove it completely so my custom nav bar is all that’s showing.

    2. Margins and paddings around the content area. If I understand correctly, main content area is defaulted at 960, but overall container is 1000. I need to remove the padding around the content area, left, right, top, and bottom. How?

    3. Border around content container area. How do I remove this border?

    Thank you in advance. So far, nice theme and once I get some of this basic stuff out of the way should be a good one for me to build off of.

    1. Use:

    nav {
    display: none;
    }

    2. Use:

    #content {
    padding: 0;
    }
    .entry-content {
    margin: 0 !important;
    }

    3. Use:

    #container, #breadcrumbs, #twitter-feed {
    box-shadow: none;
    }

    Thank you very much, those all worked. Now have an issue I haven’t run into before. I am using a custom columns plugin (1/3, 2/3, etc) I’ve tried two plugins with the same result, the default text (color and size) comes through even though I’ve over rode it in the custom options. I do need the 3 column format for a custom home page. How can I get the text to conform to my custom settings? If you have a better idea for columns that won’t interfere with the custom text, I’m all ears. http://www.indoorfootballdigest.com/fever2/

    Assuming this is one of the customizations you would like to make:

    .GTTabs_divs {
    color: #FFFFFF;
    }

    If you have other specifics in mind, please let us know and we’ll try and accommodate.

    Well thanks for the try, but that didn’t work, but (yes another but) doesn’t matter as the only text will be pulled from other pages and that comes through in the right color. I am not sure anything can be done here, but compare two headlines. Both use the same plugin (WP Category Post List Widget) In the first theme we see large headline text http://www.indoorfootballdigest.com/custom/ Now in your theme http://www.indoorfootballdigest.com/fever2/ the headline comes through the same size as the content text. Anyway to set the headline portion to a larger size?

    Actually, we have pretty much full control over the look and feel of your website, just having difficulties understanding the specific areas and how you would like to style them.

    If possible, can you take a screenshot and then perhaps circle the areas you want to style with further notes?

    You may also attempt to find the specific classes/IDs yourself with the methods outlined here, where I can then further help you style them:

    I’m sorry if I lost you. Take a look at this page, . http://www.indoorfootballdigest.com/fever2/41/ Here I’ve used three separate widgets that use custom text input. The main content area of course is the stock archive page, no widget there. As you will notice the font color is the default gray, not white as I put into the options area.

    Here’s what you need:

    body #content, body #sidebar {
    color: #FFFFFF;
    }

    Note that you did set the body color correctly, however it won’t take precedent over all areas. Some things need more specificity.
