Change Site Title and Tagline color in Fresh Ink Magazine (2 posts)

    I am using Fresh Ink Magazine theme. It makes the Site Title black, and the Tagline gray. I'd like to adjust colors but not sure where in the CSS code I can do that. Have tried a few areas, nothing changes. I am under Dashboard-Appearance-Editor (new to this so not sure if I'm even in the right place) and looking for anything h1 or #Blogtitle or #tag...

    I only want to change color of these two items, not the post titles, menu, etc.

    Also, I have looked for color codes online and all I find are 6-digit codes of letters, numbers, or combination of these. Yet, on my site, all the color: # references I see are only 3-digits. Could this be the problem, or part of it?

    Thanks for the help. In case it helps, I'm working on http://www.LagoMarCivicLeague.com site.

    The colors are set in the style.css file, but you should not make any changes to theme files directly as they will be overwritten when the theme is updated. If your theme does not have a custom CSS option, you can install a plug-in to add that, or create a Child Theme. Then you will add CSS for the elements you want to change:

    #blogtitle h2 {
        color: #XXXXXX;
    }
    
    #tag {
        color: #XXXXXX;
    }

    The 3 digit hex codes are just an abreviation for 6 digit ones -- not a problem. Do some basic reading on CSS -- and you'll find this all much easier -- this is a good site:
