Changing Blog Title and Description Text Color

  • cttl


    Hello. I have started to use this theme for our blog and like the simplicity and cleaness of it. The slider is a nice touch to the blog too!

    My question is how to change the text color of the Blog Title and Description. Depending on the header image, I will need to change the text color to stand out from the image.

    Initially I believe I was able to use the Header Text color option under in the Header menu under the WP Appearance option block. However, I am now using the child theme feature in WP 3.1 and cannot figure out how to change text color. I have tried, for example, including the following code into the child-theme style.css, which just adds the “color: #385B6B;” line:

    #header h1 {
    font: bold 28px "Trebuchet MS";
    position: relative;
    left: 38px;
    top: 80px;
    width: 852px;
    color: #385B6B;

    This did not do anything (and yet if I change the “left: 38px” to 380px, the title moves).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.



    Hi, I got this to work. For some reason the Header text color managed by WordPress did not work earlier, but is working now.




    Hey, I have the same problem actually. When i change the color in the dashboard it doesn’t change. When I change it in the code it also doesn’t change. How could I do ?



    Well I made header.png in PS / PSE

    Then disable header text.

    In my point of view the best solution.




    Ok. For SEO reasons, it is better to put far away the title and description and not to disable it.

    Why is is so hard to simply change the Color of the title or description ?

    Thanks anyway



    Well I just think SEO is quite okay with tagline from

    /wp-admin/options-general.php & You can make it look

    better the other way.
