you right click on the spot on the page that you want to find the color etc.
it should popup at the bottom of the page.
on the left you will see the html for that spot.
on the right you will see the css for that spot.
to be sure you are looking at the correct css spot you may have to hightlight a different part of the html on the left. as you do that, it will be highlited in the actual web page above the popup.
when you have the correct spot for what you want, look at the css on the right hand side. you can uncheck boxes, change colors etc. to see if it is affecting the page where you want it to.
once you know for sure you have the correct css look for the css file name and line number to the right of the css.
now, download that css file from your server to your computer, open it in your text editor only, scroll until you find the line number ( you have to set your text editor to show line numbers and turn off wrap ) that was showing in the popup.
make your edits to the css file.
save the file, upload it back where it came from and refresh your browser.
if you have not already done so, in the admin panel on the left side menu at the bottom, click on load settings.
on that page scroll down close to the bottom and find "recompile stale style settings" set that to yes.
purge the cache .
refresh your browser.
now, you should see the changes you made. also, you will not need to purge the cache after every change from now on.
if the changes are not working. reverse them and try again.
