    Is there anyway for us to customize the button on the Files pages? Perhaps, make it color like blue or somehow draw more specific attention to it?


    It’s one of the most overlooked navigational elements and we’re going to roll out a training that highlights how to use it to download, share, etc.


    But if there’s a way to enhance its display so it’s easier to find through a setting, I’d like to check into it.


    Also, in the screenshot, you’ll see how some users are trying to write a description of how to “use” the icon in the description area (that’s not really meant for it and more for SEO).

    Hey Kris,

    You can use the following code to change the color of the cog. Add the code to Control Panel > System > CSS Overrides .

    .et-files-detail .icon-cog {color: #0000EE;}

    Replace #0000EE with your desired color.

    I tried that and am not seeing any change. Do I need to do anything else to see the change like clear the cache or system to see it take effect? Thanks in advance

    Hey Kris,

    I didn't see the code in your site's CSS Overrides, so I added it to the bottom. You should see the color now. If you change the code, make sure to click save.

    OK I see you add the CSS. After changing the color, and clearing the cache on Chrome browser, I'm not seeing any difference in a color change to blue using this syntax:

    .et-files-detail .icon-cog {color: #0d96d4;}

    Hi Kris,

    The solution Grace provided was specifically for your files section. I have added a second line that targets the blog posts as you have shown here. It should now appear blue.

    Let me know if this is more what you are looking for.

    This worked to change the icon color but wasn't exactly what I was looking for. I was hoping that the whole button background color could be changed and then the icon turned white. Not sure if that's possible through CSS or not. Let me know if that is within the range of override we can exercise. Thanks

    Hey Kris,

    Use the following code instead. This will make the option button blue and the gear icon white on file and blog pages.

    .et-files-detail .icon-cog, .axero-blog-detail .btn.dropdown-toggle .icon-cog {color: #fff;}
    .et-files-detail .btn-group.pull-right a, .axero-blog-detail .btn-group.pull-right a {background: #0d96d4;}


  • krdale01

    That works a little better for visibility. Can we also get the black dropdown carrot to match the gear icon in white?



    Also, I'm hoping to see the background color in the dropdown menu stay the same white background OR reverse the color of the menu items to item for contrast. Is there anyway to override that?

  • gskamau

    Hey Kris,

    Use the updated code below.

    /*Gear icon*/
    .et-files-detail .btn.dropdown-toggle .icon-cog, 
    .axero-blog-detail .btn.dropdown-toggle .icon-cog { color: #fff; }
    /*Caret icon*/
    .et-files-detail .btn.dropdown-toggle .caret,
    .axero-blog-detail .btn.dropdown-toggle .caret { border-top: 6px solid #fff; }
    /*Options button*/
    .et-files-detail .btn-group.pull-right a.btn, 
    .axero-blog-detail .btn-group.pull-right a.btn { background: #0d96d4; }

    This worked great, Grace! Thanks so much. 

    I added it to Wikis and Articles and it also worked.and matches up with our other blue buttons on the site.

    Here's what it produced:
