Customising fonts and colours for widgets titles and text

    Hi there,
    I was wondering how to customise the fonts – size, style, colours – of the titles and text within the widgets. I have CSS but don’t really know what to do or if it’s possible??

    Many thanks

    The blog I need help with is


    To customize widget title font size, style, and color in the Linen theme, add this to your Appearance > Customize > CSS panel:

    #wrapper #sidebar h2.widgettitle {
    	color: red;
    	font-size: 1.5em;

    If you wanted to you could add the following to the example above as well, but I think we’d be better to change the font via Appearance > Custom Design > Fonts if that will work for you.

    font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;


    Here’s an example that will change the text and link color inside most widgets in the Linen theme:

    #sidebar .widget,
    #sidebar a {
    	color: #0000ff;

    You can change the color code to a color of your choice, see

    If you find that some text didn’t change color, that means there is a more specific CSS rule for whatever that text is and will need to look at it in more detail and add a rule for that case.


    Thanks designsimply! Really easy so I will have a play around.
