    I have been trying for days to figure out where to change the color of my titles to each article. Probably looked right at it 100 times. I would like it to default to white. http://www.beyondessential.com

    Try adding this to the custom CSS:

    .entry-title a {
        color: white;
    }

    Awwwwww, YES! Thank you so much!!!

    Is there that simple of a way to change the links to white? basically I need everything white on that back ground.

    Try:

    h1 a:hover, h2 a:hover, h3 a:hover {
        color: #009900;
    }

    You need to download and learn about Firebug for this kind of CSS work :).

    :{ that one didn't work. Is that code for hover? Is there one just to get it to show up?

    Thanks for the recommendation of Friebug, I have already downloaded it. Don't have time right this minute to really get in an look at it, just need my website to be readable. I just switched from WP.com, and this is a stretch for me. I'll get it, but I'm slow. I tried changing things in the stylesheet but just don't know which ones.

    I got it!

    <style type="text/css">
    a:link {
    COLOR: #0000FF;
    }
    a:visited {
    COLOR: #800080;
    }
    a:hover {
    COLOR: #FF0000;
    }
    a:active {
    COLOR: #00FF00;
    }
    </style>

    Thanks for pointing me in a direction, that's all I needed:}

    That code above was not changed on your site...

    Don't change ANYTHING in the stylesheet - your changes will be overwritten and lost when the theme is updated. Only make changes to Edit CSS - you need to copy the code from the stylesheet (using Firebug makes this VERY easy) - and paste it to the custom CSS - and make the changes there.

    Learning Firebug will be well worth your time :) - it's really quite impossible to do web work without it.

    Got it, no changes in stylesheet. I didn't do anything important, just tried to change font color.

    It is good for now, have to figure out a few more things like the back links and post a comment are still wrong color, but got to run now. Thanks again:}
