BB Styling not Working in Headway Theme

I am using the BB plugin with the Headway theme. I just started using BB so this may be a basic question but I created the home page ( on this site and used the BB Minum template on the page. None of the BB styling took affect. All BB font sizes, button bg colors, etc were ignored. Am I missing something?

In further playing, this only seems to happen when I bring a template into a page. When I bring the modules in individually and build a page, I have complete control over the styling. any thoughts on this?

Hi Dan,

I viewed the page you linked and I am not seeing any issue. Is this now resolved?


No - Here is a link that shows how it should look and how it looks on mine All the styling for the fonts and button backgrounds don’t work. Is there a way to show screen-shots on this forum? I couldn’t find any.

Hey Dan,

Do you think you can share temp admin access to the site so we can check further? You can post the details here using the private reply option below.

Hey Dan,

Sorry, I just realized what the issue is. Where did you get the first screenshot from, the one with the Green button? Most of the element’s styles are obtained from your theme so you’ll have to set them there.


I got the first screenshot from the BB layouts page I’m not getting how the plugin works. For instance in the callouts module if I go into the BB styles I can style the heading as an h1 with a custom font size of 50 px and that’s how it’s styled. If I do the same thing in a BB heading module, the styles are ignored. Why is BB able to style some elements and not others. If, as you say, most of the elements styles are obtained from the theme, why does BB have so many style controls, if they don’t work?

Hey Dan,

The problem here is that your theme has a separate styling for headings which is overriding ours. I’ll go ahead and file an enhancement report so this will be looked at. Thanks for the heads up! :slight_smile:


Hi Ben - You’re right. It seems to be mainly a heading issue. Thanks for looking into this as it would be great to not have to switch back and forth (from theme styling to BB styling) when laying out pages.

No worries at all, Dan! What’s probably gonna happen is that we can make our styling have a more specific selector so it gets a higher priority. This should be easy enough to implement that it should be out on the next maintenance patch. :slight_smile:


I’m having the same issue and would love for BB to overwrite my Headway Theme default settings.

Hey Chris,

We have just released 1.7.6 which should fix this. Can you give it a shot and let us know how it goes?


Wow @bencarlo that was fast.

Works perfect on my end…thanks!

Just so happens that the patch was released on the same day you posted. :slight_smile:

Have fun with BB!
