Changing sidebar background color, adding "read more" to excerpts and one more

Hi there!

I’ve recently received feedback that a few items would make my website (www.tworestlesshomebodies.com) a little more reader-friendly.

  • change the background color of my sidebar, but am unsure how to do this since it isn’t allowed for in the customization tool.
  • add a “read more” link to the end of all post excerpts, by default.
  • reduce spacing between posts on category pages.

Any help you could provide in making these changes would be much appreciated!!

Thank you,
Meagan

Hi Meagan,

I hope you are well today and thank you for your questions.

– change the background color of my sidebar, but am unsure how to do this since it isn’t allowed for in the customization tool.

You can try achieving this by adding the following CSS code in the Custom CSS option of your theme on the below path.

Admin Area -> Appearance -> Customize -> Additional CSS

#secondary {
background-color: #edeff1;
}

You can change the color value in the above code to whatever you want to use by referring the following pages.

– add a “read more” link to the end of all post excerpts, by default. – reduce spacing between posts on category pages.

To help us keep support thread separates could you please create new thread for each of your other questions here https://colorlibsupport.com/c/activello/ instead of asking them in your single thread as it makes the thread messy and hard to read.

If you want to you can also add reference of this thread in your newly created thread.

We would be more than happy to help you on your new thread.
