I'm new to Sitecore XMCloud. I am trying to make a partial design of a footer for a website.

Somehow, I selected a Dark Background color for the footer, and now I cannot undo it.

I am not sure where I was when I set it, whether in the Pages editor, the Experience Editor, or the Content Editor.

I have looked everywhere and do not see where that is set, but now everything I add as a footer to the page will have a dark background, and I cannot figure out how to either undo that, override it, or even make the font of words white so that they show up.

I have tried deleting the partial design and adding new ones, but no matter what, the basic page template has anything going in the footer section as dark.

I cannot see where to change the most basic base page design template either. I know this is probably a simple question, but I am a bit overwhelmed by all of the options in the different editors.

  • How are you selecting the background color? Is this in the component builder?

This would mainly depend on how you are applying background color. So first thing we can check is how it is configured in Sitecore. I would suggest you to check few things,

  • Datasource Item : Please check if it has any field to specify background color. If yes, do confirm if it is being populated from standard value. You can try creating a new datasource item and see what changes.
  • Component Properties : There are 2 things to look here. Rendering Parameters and Paint Bucket Styles. Background related value can be specified here as well.

Mostly you should find your problem here itself. If you don't then there is a rare possibility that somethings happening with custom styles. Just inspect page elements to locate where dark background property is set. And now you can investigate how is it set ?

Hope this helps !

  • Hi, thank you for the response. Where am I checking these things? In the Pages Editor, Content Editor, or Experience Editor? And what item am I checking? Is there a base page template to look at? Any screenshots would help if possible.

  • All these properties belong to a rendering, so you can check it in Experience editor as well as content editor. Commented Feb 22 at 4:59
