    I like the simple Marketer theme but it comes with an orange widget background on upper right corner that I can’t seem to change to white or another background. If i delete widget then next widget moves up and will also assume the orange background. I have also changed the background to white and saved but still reverts back to orange. Is there some sort of theme override on this or maybe i’m missing something.

    Also, how do I get the blog snippet text to show up on the home page. ONly displaying the posting title and image at this time.

    If it isn’t something I can change it is a big enough issue that I just may switch themes.

    Thank you!

    Hi there,

    The first widget is colored by this CSS in the Additional CSS field in the customizer:

    .sidebar .widget:first-child {
        background-color: #e86000;
        color: #fff;

    You can either remove it so or set it something else.

    As for displaying only the title and image on posts page, set the content type to excerpt and word count to 0:

    Featured image options are also in the same panel as well:

    Let me know if you need more info 🙂


    Thanks for the Reply Leo. I did figure out the child orange background rather easily

    However, I’m still not seeing the post excerpt and “read more” button even by default load up compared to the marketer preview.

    I set the excerpt to 60-word count under the archives blog content section and selected the “read more” button to display but neither are showing up. Why is this?

    You can go see my site now with default settings on the theme and it has no excerpts on the homepage (something I absolutely want) and no “read more” button displaying.

    Hi there,

    That’s strange – something must be preventing the excerpt from coming through.

    I just tried to check out your site but it doesn’t seem to be using Marketer anymore. However, your blog still doesn’t have any excerpts.

    Do you have any custom functions on the site? If so, can you try disabling them?

    If that doesn’t work, can you try disabling your plugins one by one to see if one of them is causing the issue?
