changing font color in CSS

  1. Hi,
    I haven't a clue about CSS! But I really need to brighten the font color in my side bar- my background is kinda dark and the Modularity Lite Theme I am using has dark grey widget fonts. I can't even see them. Further, I don't like the bright blue fonts used for links throughout the site. I want to change them to a more appropriate color for my site.


    Thank you..


    The blog I need help with is

  2. These are 3 ways to change fonts on 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.

    (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.

    (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.

    Note: A few themes do provide for changing font color in the Blog Title and/or optional Tagline and/or links. 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 a custom design upograde and CSS editing.

  3. I did buy the CSS upgrade. I just don't understand how to change the widget header font colors for the entire site. Is this page specific or is it site specific? I am totally clueless!

  4. Okay now that I understand I will flag this thread do it gets moved to the CSS Forum where you can get Staff help.

  5. Oh, thank you so much! Should I count this as 'resolved' for this forum?

  6. Is this page specific or is it site specific?

    CSS is theme specific in most cases.

    Is your site? If so, it looks like you may have switched from Modularity Lite to Elemin. If you still need help with Modularity Lite, could you please post a link to the blog you are working on so we can take a closer look at your custom CSS so far and make a recommendation based on that?

  7. Hi Designssimply,

    I actually have several sites. But I was talking about my church site: In any case, I have had this resolved beautifully in the CSS forum. They gave me the right CSS code to add to my Custom Design CSS page. Since then, I have been doing some experimentation and research. I must say, it is quite interesting! Thanks for taking the time to respond- but I think I can consider this issue 'resolved'!

    Thanks, Timethief!


  8. Sounds good! Cheers :)
