Change h1 text color in Oxygen theme?

  1. Hello. I am trying to darken the color of the header text (e.g. the grey word HOME on the home page) in my Oxygen themed blog so that it shows up better against the background. I couldn't find anywhere to do this in the theme, so I am trying to utilize CSS. I am trying to use CSS code like below with no effect:
    h1 {
    color: red;
    }
    However, I can get the background to change using the following:
    h1 {
    background-color: blue;
    }
    Can anyone help me understand what I need to do differently to darken just the header text?

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is kevinandjannbradford.com.

  2. I had to put in the important designation to get this to work. Try this:

    .entry-title{color:red!important;}

  3. If you use css or html there is a table of colour codes to use. You don't have to stick with the basic ones.

  4. @realism... Yes, I like the one at http://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_colorpicker.asp because of the way it shows lighter and darker shades of your color.

  5. Thanks Houston.

    Happy to help.

  6. That (!important) worked great, thank you both!
