Parament theme – changing the category and "Leave a comment" hover colour

    I’m desperate to change the hover colour of these two links (which appear above each post) from the standard orange of the uncustomised theme; it’s now the only orange left and it looks daft.

    I’ve been completely unable to find the code for this on the stylesheet, and any pointers would be much appreciated.


    PS The blog concerned is

    The blog I need help with is


    Add this to the end of your custom CSS and then edit the color hex code as desired. This will also change the “Posted in” text color.

    .entry-meta, .entry-meta a {
    color: #7C8196;

    If you only want to change the actual category and leave a comment text colors, then do this instead.

    .entry-meta a {
        color: #7C8196;

    Thank you – tried that and it didn’t have any affect on the two links concerned.

    Could it be somewhere else in the stylesheet?


    Ok, let’s use the CSS hammer. Try these.

    .entry-meta, .entry-meta a {
    color: #7C8196 !important;
    .entry-meta a {
    color: #7C8196 !important;

    Oh and make sure and change the color codes. The ones shown are the original colors.


    An, now this could be the cause of the problem. It’s not the grey font colour I need to change, it’s the orange colour seen when hovering over the two link elements of the text.

    I think the colour code you’ve given me is the grey, hence my response.


    Ah, my bad. Add this and change the two color codes. The first is the bottom border when hovered.

    .entry-meta a:hover {
    border-bottom: 1px solid #FF5A00;
    color: #FF5A00;


    Thank you – really grateful for your help with that.


    You are welcome.
