Quintus Theme - change colors background and text

  1. I not very custom with CSS, done it years ago, but forgot a lot.
    Please could somebody give me a hint how to change

    1) the background color where the text is to white
    2) the font color to black
    3) the color links (hyperlink) to red

    Thanks, Barb

    The blog I need help with is skalabara.com.

  2. 1) the background color where the text is to white

    Do you mean the header area? to override the blog header image with a color, try this:

    .blog-header {
    background: darkOliveGreen;
    }

    Adjust the color as necessary.

  3. 2) the font color to black

    This depends on which fonts you want to change. Here are some examples.

    If you want to change the font to black inside posts, add this to your Appearance → Custom Design → CSS page:

    .entry-content {
    color: black;
    }

    If you want to change the fonts in the header, add this:

    #site-title a, #site-description {
    color: black;
    }
  4. 3) the color links (hyperlink) to red

    To change the link color in the Quintus theme to red, add this:

    .content a {
    color: red;
    }

    That will change anything that doesn't have a more specific rule for color set, including post titles. If you wanted to change post titles back to black, you could add this:

    .entry-title a {
    color: black;
    }

    There are additional, specific color rules set for some links in the Quintus theme which you can identify and update separately if you'd like. You can look for any "color" settings in the original Quintus stylesheet to see which links have specific color settings.

  5. Thank you very much for your help. I managed to change the font colors and hyperlink color.
    To 1) - I did not describe this properly - I would like to change the post background. Quintus has a color background and I prefer to have it white.

    Another question to font colors : how can I change the sidebar font color to black (i.e. topics, email subscriptions, blogroll, archives, my little cloud ....)

    The Quintus theme has a custom background feature which is found here > Appearance > Background and you can either select a background color, or you can uplaod a custom image background there.

  7. @timethief, thanks for your help. I have played with this feature.

    But I want to change a different background color - in the site where the uploaded posts are. It is found here > Appearance >Theme options. Here I can choose between Default and Archaic. But both themes have a color background where the posts are uploaded. This I would like to change this to white or to a very clear color.

  8. I would like to change the post background. Quintus has a color background and I prefer to have it white.

    I see you got this covered with the following CSS:

    div#page {
    	background:#fff
    }

    Nice work!
