changing header text on all pages

    hi there!

    i am using the “elegant grunge” theme and I recently went into CSS and changed the font size of my header text to 70px. this change shows up when I am on the home page, but not when I click into any of my indiviual posts.
    i.e. when I click “continue reading” and am in the full post page, the change to the header isn’t showing up?
    same thing with the post title color – I changed the color to #f028b6 and this is showing up on the home page but not in the individual post pages.

    does anyone know what I should be doing to ensure that the changes are visible on each page?

    the weird thing is that I changed the color of the widget headers and these ARE appearing on all pages.

    any help would be most appreciated! :)

    The blog I need help with is


    a) You’ve added this:

    #header h1 {font-size:70px;}

    Change it to this:

    #header h1, #header h2 {font-size:70px;}

    b) Add this (and change the size number):

    h1.entry-title, h2.entry-title {color: #f028b6;font-size: 2.4em;}


    oh wow, thank you so much! that worked perfectly! :)

    two more questions for you, if you don’t mind:

    1) in my header text, the bottom of the letter “y” in the word vinyl is getting cut off. it wasn’t like this when i first changed the text to 70px but now it is. to fix it, do i need to make the text smaller (i.e. 65 or 60px?) I’d like to keep it at 70px if possible – is there any way to shift the text up a little so the “y” doesn’t get cut off?

    2) how do i change the title color on the different pages – i.e. the “about”, “book review criteria”, “book review final grades”, “contributors” pages? the titles (headers) are black now which i might just keep, but if I wanted to change the color in the future how would I go about it?

    sorry for all the questions, thank you SO much for your help!! :)


    You’re welcome.

    1) I can’t really help, because I’m not seeing this in any of the three browsers I’m using. (Are you using Explorer perhaps?) I don’t know if nudging the text up will help, but anyway you can do it by changing this:
    #header h1, #header h2 {font-size:70px;}
    to this:
    #header h1, #header h2 {font-size:70px;bottom:5px;}
    (You can change the bottom number, of course.)

    2) Like the code for posts, with “page” instead of “entry”:, {color:#f028b6;}


    ah, you are quite right! i’m at work and viewing it in Explorer, but when i go into Firefox it’s fine. Nevertheless I will try out your suggestion! :)

    Thank you SO much for all of your help!!! :)
