I am trying to customize the colors on my blog and can only go so far because when I change the link colors, the sidebar color automatically changes to a much darker color making it difficult to see the links. When I change ANY of the colors: links, accent or headings, the sidebar immediately turns dark gray which I don't like. Please help me learn how to change the color of the side bar. Thanks.
I have the Highwinds theme.
The blog I need help with is amforte66.wordpress.com.
