I am playing with the Theme Wizard to change the site to warmer tones. AFter running the Theme Wizard, many(most) colors are changed but the Zone menu and box titles remain the original blue color. What did I do wrong? Should these also change with the rest of the theme?

Also, I chose the "dark theme" option, but my background stayed light. Why would this happen?

Thanks for any help.

Bob

Did it actually finish, or did it time-out and maybe you refreshed? Are you saving into a new theme, or on top of an existing one? Does it look alright in the preview?

Chris-

As I recall it did finish but I am not absolutely certain about that. I was saving into a new theme. It appeared incorrectly in the Preview.

One thing I just noticed is that the seed color is the same in 'Manage themes'.

I'll try again and make certain that I pay attention to what occurs.

Thanks for your help.

Chris-

Just tried again and the same thing happened.

Settings:
Name: test2
Source: JRC (auto-created from installation)
Algorithm: Equations
Dark theme: Checked
Inherit CSS from Default: Checked

Preview looked correct but the result is a mishmash: dark background around logo but nowhere else, box titles and zone menu still blue.

Here's what it looks like:

Tracked down, fixed ready for v7.1. It's caused by a bug in the 'inherit CSS from default' option.

Had a hunch that might be the trigger.

Yet another reason to be anxious for 7.1.
