How do I change the font size and color in the menu section?

  1. I just started a blog on WordPress, with the "Bueno" theme. I'm wondering how to change the font sizes and colors in the menu section on the right-hand side (e.g. Archives, etc...)

    I have no experience in Computer Science/coding, so I'm completely stumped over the CSS tutorials on WordPress.
    Am I even allowed to change the font, since I didn't purchase any upgrade packages on WordPress? (I just have the free version.)

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

    No you cannot make the changes to widget titles font size and color without purchasing an annually renewable custom design upgrade and doing the required CSS editing.

  3. Basically, no. Not in the prefab widgets. You would need the Custom Design upgrade.

  4. Thank you for the answers! Makes so much sense now...I spent all last night trying to figure out how to customize the widget title fonts, not knowing I'd have to purchase the upgrade package to do that....Sucks..

  5. And thanks for the links, timethief.

  6. You're welcome. 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 purchasing an annually renewable custom design upgrade and doing the required CSS editing.

    Only a very few themes do provide for changing font color in the Blog Title and/or optional Tagline and/or links. http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/03/24/color-customisable-themes/
