[1.5] Title Color Change (5 posts)

    I must be some sort of idiot...

    I am trying to change my blog's header title color. (NOT!! the post titles) I apparently am completely unable to find the correct place to do so and as a result I'm getting incredibly frustrated.

    Several searches on these boards brought me threads on changing post titles but not the actual header words. I've changed the header background image (using the default Kubrick-based theme) and would much prefer the title color to fit in with my general color scheme.

    Including a link to my blog would probably be relatively useless as I haven't transferred any of the original Blogger posts yet. I'd rather have the base site built and the technical aspects of the blog solidified before I start having my readers change their bookmarks and links.

    Hopefully, this query is making sense without making too many of you laugh uncontrollably at my ineptitude.

    I think this is the perfect post to unveil my new tool:

    Kubrickr lets you find Creative Commons-licensed images on Flickr for specific tags, crop the image to size, and then use that image to replace the big blue blob in the Kubrick header.

    There are instructions in the process for what to do with the image when you've created it.

    Please leave comments on my official announcement post.

    To answer your question...

    Open /wp-content/themes/default/style.css and look for this line:
    h1, h1 a, h1 a:hover, h1 a:visited, .description

    Change the color from "white" to whatever.

    Actually, you want to find these lines....h2 is for post titles.

    h1, h1 a, h1 a:hover, h1 a:visited, .description {
    text-decoration: none;
    color: white;
    }

    This will take care of the blog description as well.

    Oops. I think I copied the wrong line. Duh. Yeah, definitely H1.

    I think I need a vacation from this WordPress stuff.

    YES! Thank you!

    I was trying to do that with just the plain h1 line.

    Now if I could only find people as helpful as you to help me with the CSS coding on my website... *sigh*
