    I need to edit a theme, in which it is changing the colour of the background.  However,  I do not have visual studios or the old CSS file to edit it through web applications. There is tons of settings already coded so I do not wish to recode the whole CSS file. Is there a way to edit the theme without using Visual Studios?

    Hi Stepahnie,

    You can try to get the css files you need to update by download them from the backend: Administration > File manager.

    Alternatively, as temporary solution, you can try to change the styles by using the CSS Widget and !important clause on a page/page template in order to override them as needed.

    I hope this helps.
