Changing font colour

  1. I have selecta theme but I have put my own background. As it is a pale background the white font of "leave a reply" comments box is barely visible. How do I change the font colour?
    I tried searching for the correct terms to use in the CSS form - is there a list somewhere?
    Also when defining colours with numbers, is there anywhere I can see a colour chart which will give me the numbers I need to use?

    The blog I need help with is storkhunting.com.

  2. Try this:

    #reply-title {color:#ff0000;}

    Use your own color of course.

    Here is one color picker. I like it because you can get a lot of shades of your chosen color.

    Each theme is unique. The easiest way to figure out what selectors to use in a WordPress.com CSS update is to start by checking your theme's original stylesheet. Use the web inspector which is built in to modern browsers by right-clicking and choosing "Inspect Element"—it will show you all the CSS related to the thing you right-clicked and it's super handy!

    To add to houstonweaver's suggestion, you may also want to change the color for the comments title too—it's above past comments if they exist and says something like "2 Responses." Here's a CSS example to try which will change the color of the comments and comment form titles like "Leave a Reply" as well as the borders below them:

    #comments-title,
    #respond h3 {
    	color: black;
    }
    
    #comments-title, #reply-title {
    	border-color: black;
    }
