CSS Meta Tag

  1. Hello, I just wanted to inquire how I could add this to my blog: thecanadiantechie.com

    In the latest version of Android, 5.0, if you install the Chrome Beta app on a Android phone running the latest version of Android, you will see that the status bar of Android will change colours along with the website.

    Here's an example: http://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/nexus2cee_2014-11-10-22.54.10_thumb.png

    In this article it says:
    The process is super-simple. All you need to do is add a tag to your page's <head> with name="theme-color" set to any CSS color you like. For example, to set the header color to a nice relaxing indigo (as above on AP), you'd do <meta name="theme-color" content="#3F51B5">. There's also support for high-resolution favicons in Chrome v39, which will look nifty in the new app switcher.

    Except the colour I would like is: #0e71b4

    So I would like to do the same for my site,

    I am not too familiar with CSS, just to put that out there.

    The blog I need help with is thecanadiantechie.com.

  2. Hi there, this is not something that can be done via CSS. It would require editing the theme files themselves, and we cannot do that at WordPress.com.
