Misty theme css upgrade help

    I just purchased the css upgrade, and I am completely new to css. I've managed a couple of changes, but am stuck on this: I want to change the color of the headers, which are all the same green, to a dark blue.

    I assume this is the chunk of code I want to change (?) :

    #content h3 {
    font-size: 1.4em;
    font-weight:normal;
    margin: 1em 0 0;
    color: #265e15;
    }
    #content h4 {
    font-size: 1.1em;
    margin: 1em 0 0 0;
    }
    #content h5 {
    font-size: 1em;
    margin: 1em 0;

    I put in the editor:

    #content h3 {
    color: #191970;
    }

    And nothing changes.

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

  2. That does change h3 to dark blue. Do you have any text formatted as h3 in your posts? Or do you mean you want to change the post and widget titles? Those aren't h3.

    Ah. I want to change post and widget titles (also, next I was going to change the widget text color, which is also green).

  4. Assuming you want the same color for blog title, post titles, widget titles and widget lists:

    #header h1 a, .posttitle h2 a, li.sidebox h2, li.sidebox a { color: #191970; }

    If you're using Firefox, add the Firebug and Aardvark addons: help you identify selectors.

    Thanks so much. Worked beautifully, and thanks for the Firefox tip.

    I needed to know the same thing. Thank you!

    Do you mind if I add another question? My header photo disappeared somewhere along the way. Can you tell me how to get it back?
