    Is it possible (without screwing everything up) to change the color of the tagline in my header? If so, how? Be gentle; I’m not very WP proficient. Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is


    Hi there!

    Your website is looking really good. Keep up the good work!

    So if you want to change the font color of your tagline “Tips, time-savers and local info for Nashville visitors and newcomers” then you will need to be on either the premium or business plan so you can access the CSS editor.

    -Go to “My Sites”
    -Select “Customize” under “Personalize”
    -Once that loads, go down to “CSS”

    From there this is the CSS that is currently assigned to the line of text you want to change.

    .site-description {
    color: #999;
    font-size: 1.1em;
    font-weight: 400;
    line-height: 110%;
    margin: 20px 0 0 0;
    text-align: center;
    text-shadow: 1px 1px 1px rgba(0,0,0,.25);

    Change “color: #999;” to whatever you want it to be.
    You can use color names (eg: red, yellow, etc), hex codes (eg: FF0000, FFFF00) or decimal codes (eg: 255,0,0).

    Just copy that code, paste in the CSS editor and you should see the change you’d like to see.

    Hope this helps!


    Thank you very much. I wasn’t sure if this change was possible with Baskerville 2 or required an upgrade. I appreciate your detailed response.


    Anytime. Happy I could lend a hand!
