change tagging/categorizing/comment color in Pilcrow

  1. Hello,
    using Pilcrow without a Custom Appearance upgrade and the default blue colored meta stuff (tag, category, Leave a comment etc.) is really messin' with my steez... is there a way to change that?
    And actually, is there anyway to make it more discreet (ie: not highlighted like a Blockquote)? In the case of a simple two sentence post, the whole shebang takes up more space than the post itself!
    If there is another single column-theme where this is possible, I'm willing to change over.
    Thanks a lot

    The blog I need help with is inspireemag.wordpress.com.

  2. without a Custom Appearance upgrade

    If you are expecting to be able to click a button and change fonts throughout your blog then it’s not that easily done.

    These are 3 ways to change fonts on wordpress.com blogs.

    (1) Changing font families, colors and size in text in posts or pages either post by post or page by page by coding into the HTML editor. http://en.support.wordpress.com/editors/font-size-color/

    (2) Changing font colors in text in posts or pages either post by post or page by page using the #4 icon (Select text color – change the text color) in Row 2 the Visual editor. http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#row-2

    (3) Changing all font families, colors and sizes throughout the whole blog by purchasing an annually renewable Custom Design upgrade and using Typekit Fonts with Staff support. http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/

    Note: A few themes do provide for changing font color in the Blog Title and/or optional Tagline and/or links. In the majority of themes font changes to font families, colors and size in the blog title, tagline, menu, post titles, page titles, categories and tags, widget headings, comments, and links cannot be done without CSS editing.

  3. I assume this is your blog http://inspireemag.wordpress.com/
    Please link it to your username so we don't have to hunt for the URL when you post to the forums. Here’s how to link your username to your blog in your blog Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings -> then scroll down to Account Details. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Website‘ select the URL for your primary wordpress.com blog and then save changes.

    Then every time you sign into the forum we can all click on your username and your blog will be linked to it. And every time you leave a comment on a blog your username can be likewise clicked and your blog can be instantly located.

  4. I'm sorry about the link not being there, didn't mean to waste your time-

    It's not the text inside the posts i'd like to change, i figured out how to do that somewhere else in the forum :)
    If you check on http://inspireemag.wordpress.com/ you'll see that I made some pink lettering in the last post.
    it's not the text inside the comments or tags I'd like to change
    It's the actual name "Tags" and "Categories" and "Leave a Comment", the blog's instructions, i would say, that I would like to change. If you take a look, those are the only things in bright blue on the blog.
    If that's only possible in other Themes, please let me know how they are referred to exactly, so I can research it in other Theme details?
    Thanks again!

  5. You can only change the font color in text in posts and pages on that theme. You cannot change the color on the Tags" and "Categories" and "Leave a Comment" without a custom design upgrade and the required CSS editing.
