  1. Hello,

    I love the theme ” Twenty Fourteen”, but i want to change the colour from black to blue. Can you advise me how to do this please? I can’t seem to work it out.

    1. Hi Danielle, You just need to activate the Fourteen Colors plugin, you will then have a option to change colours in the customiser.

  2. Hi I am using the jetpack plugin extra widgets on the Fourteen Colors plugin but can’t get the twitter widget to appear on the site and it seems that I have it set up properly – any ideas why it isn’t on the site?

        1. Hi,
          On the TwentySeventeen theme the sidebar only appears on posts and post archive pages. It does not appear on Pages such as your welcome page. You could put the widget in one of the two footer widget areas.

  3. Hi

    I am looking to see if we can get a guide to help with building the school website.
    Can you please point me in the right direction on where I can find this please.
