how to change the footer color?
Have you looked in the styles settings within the theme options yet? If there is no setting to change the specific color panel you want, then use Chrome or Firefox+Firebug and right click on the area you want to change and choose Inspect Element. That will bring up a console that shows exactly which lines of CSS in exactly which files affect that element so that you can go in and change the style how you see fit.
This helped. Thank you.
