    I am using the Piano Black theme and I cant seem to find where to change the default color of the text and links. Where might I find this exactly to edit it? http://www.candlelitlife.com Thanks in advance.

    element.style {
        color: #CC99FF;
    }

    change this in tour custom.css to below:

    element.style {
        color: red ;
    }

    if it's not in any stylesheet, make it happen in styles.css and add !important to override any inline style

    At the bottom of your style.css file, add,
    For text

    p{
      color: #fff !important;
    }

    For links

    a, a:visited, a:link{
     color: #9966ff !important;
    }

    a million times thank you :) one more question ... How do I change the default color for the date stamp on my posts? Its super light gray and I rather have it a white or something else.
