font colour, modularity lite

    hi guys – wondering if someone could take a look at my site – see the text appearing in blue (tags, post categories etc.)

    How can I change the colour of these? I have type kit installed and figured out how to change post titles but can’t figure this out. I have the custom CSS upgrade but have never used it or CSS – that stuff terrifies me so i’d need a step by step if changing involves this tool.

    thanks for any help in advance!

    You need to change it in two places. Add the following to your CSS and edit the hex color codes as desired.

    a {
    color: #428CE7;
    #sidebar .widget_categories ul li a, #footer .widget_categories ul li a, #sidebar .widget_twitter ul li a, #footer .widget_twitter ul li a {
    color: #428CE7;

    yes, its mostly worked! I still have a ‘more from me’ in one of the widgets appearing blue though – any idea for thaT?

    May I also ask – see the back lozenges around my ‘tag’ boxes – how would I edit the colour for those, also the grey background – want to change to white as per my overall theme background?

    sorry for sneaking those in. amazed at your rapid responses guys!


    The flickr widget has its own styling and I didn’t notice that the link at the bottom didn’t change.

    #flickr_badge_uber_wrapper a:hover, #flickr_badge_uber_wrapper a:link, #flickr_badge_uber_wrapper a:active, #flickr_badge_uber_wrapper a:visited {
    color: #3993FF;

    On the background for the tags this should do it, and for the grey text color it’s in the .quiet selector.

    .postmetadata {
        background: #000000;
    .quiet {
    color: #666666;

    I’m a little confused on the “grey background” you mention wanting to change to white. The only grey background I see is for the overall container.
