Most of the red colours in your theme are controlled by the png image attached to my reply. The theme uses it as a repeated background image for those divs or cells that are red. This image is located here:

To change the red colour you will need to create a new png image named line.png and with the dimensions of the current line.png but with the colour you want, then upload it to the same location above to overwrite the old line.png

Note: This may or may not work for the search button

For the small triangular corners, you need to also do process described above for You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Ha!
This one is beyond me o. I thought it was something that would be simple by accessing via the editor. I would have prefered light blue.

Some themes are able to make such changes via the dashboard options but not all. I don't know if this your own can. Maybe you can check themes settings to see if you can find anything as such.

On the other hand, Why not just look for a blue theme instead?

ok. thats actually the blue version of your theme if I am not mistaken. anyway its fortunate because I was able to get from the site the blue versions of the red files I mentioned previously. I have attached them to this reply. So now all you have to do is upload them to overwrite the red versions of the images to the proper directory as explained previously.

You may need to upload it through your Cpanel or via FTP upload
