    I’m new to wp – trynig to convert from blogspot. I’m trying to spend as little $ as possible. Is it possible for me to change the font color and the link color on my blog with the current theme I have?

    I’d also like to bring my blog out to the sides so there is not so much empty space. Is that possible?

    If these are not possible, does anyone know of a free theme that allows for:

    custom background color
    custom font color
    custom header
    custom margins

    Thank you so much. I’m getting a little frustrated! :)

    The blog I need help with is blog.caroldunniganphotography.com.

    There are search filters in the Themes Showcase you can use.
    http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/features/custom-background/
    http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/features/custom-header/
    These are 3 ways to change fonts on wordpress.com blogs.

    (1) Changing font families, colors and size in text in posts or pages either post by post or page by page by coding into the HTML editor. http://en.support.wordpress.com/editors/font-size-color/

    (2) Changing font colors in text in posts or pages either post by post or page by page using the #4 icon (Select text color – change the text color) in Row 2 the Visual editor. http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#row-2

    (3) Changing all font families, colors and sizes throughout the whole blog by purchasing an annually renewable Custom Design upgrade and using Typekit Fonts with Staff support. http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/

    Note: A few themes do provide for changing font color in the Blog Title and/or optional Tagline and/or links. In the majority of themes font changes to font families, colors and size in the blog title, tagline, menu, post titles, page titles, categories and tags, widget headings, comments, and links cannot be done without CSS editing.

    Re: margins
    It’s important to comprehend that WordPress.com blogs are not free standing and we cannot edit templates or themes. We are all blogging on the same multiuser blogging platform. Every blog wearing the same theme is using the same underlying template. Only Staff can access those files and edit as every edit they make affects all blogs wearing the same theme.

    Yeah, I saw that. I would have to go the CSS route – $$ lol

    One more question. When I was looking at your option #3 a few hours ago, it only looked like font and not color. Is that correct?

    No. “Changing all font families, colors and sizes throughout the whole blog” :)
