Hi everyone. I am still very new to backdrop and web site creation in general. I have been trying to change the color of text in different blocks. I know that someone may gasp at this.... I am experimenting a lot with things, as much to see what I can get away with as much as to get my site the way I want. I am using the Basis theme v1.17.4 and I moved the default header to the footer in an attempt to get the login links to the bottom of the page instead of the top. The login link turned red and is almost invisible against the green background.
My question is: Is there some secret sauce that will allow changing things like the background color of a "default" block? Or the color of the text? I grepped the CSS files until my fingers were blue, but I couldn't get the clue. (I don't know CSS and I am a slow learner <<grin>>) I could not really figure out how to get the custom block to do something like switching the links based on whether the current user is logged in or not. I don't know what I don't know if you know what I mean. I am probably asking the wrong question, since I think it's likely that I am not the first one to want to do this.
The Basis theme is fine for what I want to do as far as the layout goes. I am mostly interested in figuring out how to change the colors and maybe the locations of things. I would like to have a footer block with things like "login" and some other links to different sites.
