I am working on a draft theme to replace our current theme, which is a clone of our current theme. Simple stuff, updated to our new logo and colors, etc. I went through and was able to change everything except for a couple areas. The alert (with the bell) background didn't pick up the button color that I selected. Also, the badges on the left that give a number status to search results didn't pick up the button color. We also have custom links enabled in the navigation and there is nothing in the custom css that is coloring the links/hover color, but they are still the old color. Help documentation seemed to imply that changing the button color would change the alert/badges:
But not sure about the main navigation link colors and if there is just simply something that I missed. Inspecting the CSS says that the colors are coming from "temporary-jive-css" if that helps...
I figured it out. It was because I had the Advanced Header and Navigation style changed to custom. I had to temporarily change that back to reduced or basic to get the blue dot... then it was straight forward.
