Text color

    Hello, I’m trying to figure out where I can change the text color of my posts. When I post something, at the top left of the page, it’s blended in.
    Thanks again!

    The blog I need help with is squeegee-prints.com.


    The base font color for the Traction theme is set on the body tag:

    body {
        color: #444;

    Add a like like that with an updated color to the bottom of your Appearance → Custom Design → CSS page to update most of the main fonts.

    Note that if a more specific rule is set somewhere else, then that would override the general one set on the body tag. For example, there’s a very specific selector setup for the featured posts heading:

    div.feature-main h3 a:link, div.feature-main h3 a:visited {
        color: #444;

    Finally, if you want to target something like just paragraph text inside posts, you would do something like this:

    .entry p {
        color: #444;

    Ohhh ok that makes sense! I’m still having trouble changing the font color for the date of the post :(


    Oh! The date color? :) Note that it helps very much to have an example link where the issue can be seen in the first help request.

    I found a post example with a date here: http://squeegee-prints.com/2011/09/28/patch-printing/

    On that posts in Traction, you can change the date text color and text shadow color by adjusting the colors in these lines an adding it to your Appearance → Custom Design → CSS page:

    #main-top h4 {
        color: black;
        text-shadow: 0 1px 0 #DBDBDB;

    i love u…


    Hahahahaha thank you so much you are so awesome!
