    And I will change font type. thanks

  3. To change the body text, I used Firebug for Firefox to determine that the element to target is the class entry-content.

    This means you can change its font attributes by adding some custom CSS like this:

    .entry-content {
    color: #666;
    font-size: 16px;
    font-family: Georgia, "Times New Roman", Times, serif;
    }

    You can use any colour you like.

    Don't edit the theme files directly, otherwise your changes will be overwritten when the theme is updated.

    An easy way to add custom CSS like this is to install the Jetpack plugin and activate the Custom CSS module. You could also install a standalone custom CSS plugin, or create a child theme.

    Also a heads-up that it looks like you've carried over some formatting from an outside program (likely Word or another Microsoft app) since I see this "garbage code" in your browser source:

    <!--[if gte mso 9]><xml><br />
    <w:WordDocument><br />
    <w:View>Normal</w:View><br />
    <w:Zoom>0</w:Zoom><br />
    <w:Compatibility><br />
    <w:BreakWrappedTables/><br />
    <w:SnapToGridInCell/><br />
    <w:WrapTextWithPunct/><br />
    <w:UseAsianBreakRules/><br />
    </w:Compatibility><br />
    <w:BrowserLevel>MicrosoftInternetExplorer4</w:BrowserLevel><br />
    </w:WordDocument><br />
    </xml><![endif]-->
    <p class="MsoNormal">

    I suggest you use the Paste from Word button if pasting from Word to remove this code.

    Thank u so much Presner. As you can see I am able to change the font type and size. But is it possible for me to change the page, the title and the subtitle color? I want the site to look like a casino website. regard http://www.casinowhizkid.com
    As with the formatting you said I have carried out I cannot understand.

    Learning how to target your site's CSS will help you make certain design changes. Here are some very helpful posts that will help you customize your site with CSS:

    Which part are you having trouble understanding?

    Hi there! Sorry if I'm bumping a dead thread, but the forums said not to make a new one if there was one already relating to your question.

    My question is not how to change the text color, but specifically the header color for blog posts. I tried looking at the CSS through Firebug and I've activated Custom CSS through Jetpack, but I can't really make heads or tails of it. I've tried modifying the .entry-content class, but that only changed the body text color. I tried .entry-title, and that did the same thing.

    What class should I change in order to change the header text from green to a navy blue (I was thinking hex code #016)? The theme is Misty Lake, and the website is ericaconverso.com. Thanks so much!
