    I did not use Rehub theme, but it should be adding a Rehub menu on the Wordpress dashboard (after you log in). From there you can make modifications to the theme and set preferences. (Google Rehub documentation for help)

    Most theme like this will also offer "custom css" or "custom codes" from the dashboard theme's settings.

    If those are not enough for what you need, then you can locate the files to modify them yourself (Html, Css, Php, etc.)

    For this, go to the Wordpress dashboard, and from the left menu go to Appearance -> Editor and there will be a list of the files used by the theme on the right and you can modify them there or copy them to notepad (or any editor). Copy back on the dashboard and save when you are done.

    If you prefer using FTP to fetch the files, then the files will be in ../root/wp-content/themes/"theme's name"/css (or anything you need) on your host's server.

    Good luck

    If you know CSS op and only want to make some minor changes you can tweak the stylesheet css which can be usually found in yourwebsite.com/wp-admin/theme-editor.php

    If you are using wordpress do not make changes to the code without using a child theme, when wordpress update which they are doing a lot lately then changes you make will be lost. Just make a child theme and do all changes there.

    you don't ever modify actual core code, always use a child theme otherwise changes will get overridden next update. Child Theme is a must

    I have just looked at the theme and see they give you a free child theme, why are you editing the core code? use the child theme
