Font color change for custom CSS - Modularity Lite

  1. I just bought the custom upgrade in order to change the embedded text from blue, to white or army green (http://genereedfoto.wordpress.com). I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how this works. It seems I'm too dense for the WordPress explanation. Can anyone help or at least point me in the right direction? Thanks!

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

  2. I'll be honest with you; I can't figure it out either.
    Changing the color of font should not be - and need not be - so complex. Why on Earth in 2011 should we still need to know anything about HTML just to change font colors? That's ridiculous.
    I'm switching to Weebly or Tumblr - both of which are infinitely easier to navigate.
    I want to write - not spend all my energy learning overly complex things that have already been made user-friendly on other platforms.

    I have flagged this thread so it gets moved to the CSS Dorum by our Moderators. There you can receive Staff support or help from a Volunteer who gels with CSS editing. I also did a search and turned up this > http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/modularity-lite-font-change?replies=5#post-516818

    You bave not stated whether or not your have purchased the annually renewable custom design upgrade or not. 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: Any font changes to font families, colors and size in the blog title, tagline, post titles, page titles cannot be done without CSS editing.

  5. Well - thanks for the reply. I presume you work for WordPress.
    I'll be completely honest with you. I am just starting a new blog here. Long time blogger on Weebly and Tumblr.
    If I had known how complex (and expensive) such a simple thing as changing font color was on WP before purchasing a domain name here - I wouldn't have done it. All of the features of your Custom Upgrade are MUCH easier on both Weebly and Tumblr - and they're also free.
    Question: since I haven't yet made one single posting (because I've been spending all my energy trying to change font colors etc) - can I cancel with WP, get a refund, and switch my domain to another host? Or - must I just pay a new host to transfer my domain and just lose the registration fees I already paid to WP?
    thanks,
    Udey

  6. Delete all the informational text from the CSS edit window and paste in the following and then edit the hex color code as desired.

    a {
    color: #428CE7;
    }

    The following would be the color when you hover your mouse over a link (white right now).

    a:hover, a:focus {
    color: #FFFFFF;
    }
  7. Tried it. Didn't work. Not surprised.
    Trying to simply change my Title's font color has resulted in one of the most frustrating days of my blogging life.
    Codes? In 2011? You have got to be kidding me.
    Now I just need to figure-out how to move my domain to somewhere where simple editing doesn't require a 3 hour tutorial.

  8. @udeyjohnson, the information I posted above was not for you. It was for the original poster in this thread. CSS is theme specific and you are not using the same theme as the person who started this thread.

    If you have the CSS upgrade, and you want help changing something on your site here, start a new thread in the CSS forum and I will help you with those changes. If you do not want to do that then I wish you well.

  9. On second though, here is where the title colors are for the Simpla theme. The first is the normal orange color. The second is the red hover color. The third is for the tagline color.

    #header h1 a {
    color: #E87830;
    }
    
    #header h1 a:hover {
    color: #CC0000;
    }
    
    #header p {
    color: #AAAAAA;
    }

    In the future, if you end up hanging around wordpress, if you are asking a theme related question, please do not post in an existing thread for a different theme as all it does is end up confusing not only the people who have the other theme, but it also ends up confusing you.
