    I have the Oxygen theme and I'm trying to make the template dark. But with this, I need to change the text colors on my blog.

    I am wondering if anybody can tell me how I change the main text color, the post title color on a post page (i.e., http://strangesquatch.tk/blog/cryptobiology/2013/02/20/the-top-5-cryptids-of-north-america Right now it's black and you can't see it.), and the hover link color and underline.

    Thank you. My blog is

    In your Custom CSS section of the dashboard, or Child Theme stylesheet, add this;

    /* Main text color */
    body {
     color: deepskyblue;
    }
    
    /* Post title color for home, archive and search page color */
    .home .hentry .entry-title a:hover,
    .page-template-front .hentry .entry-title a:hover,
    .archive .hentry .entry-title a:hover,
    .search .hentry .entry-title a:hover {
     color: deepskyblue;
    }
    
    /* Post title for other pages */
    a, a:visited, .page-template-front .hfeed-more .hentry .entry-title a:hover, .entry-title a, .entry-title a:visited {
     color: deepskyblue !important;
    }
    
    /* Hover title color */
    .home .hentry .entry-title a:hover,
    .page-template-front .hentry .entry-title a:hover,
    .archive .hentry .entry-title a:hover,
    .search .hentry .entry-title a:hover {
     color: deeppink;
     border-color: deeppink;
    }

    I created a child theme. This is my style.css for it:

    /*
    Theme Name:     Strangesquatch Theme
    Theme URI:      http://example.com/                      /* optional */
    Description:    Child theme for the Twenty Twelve theme  /* optional */
    Author:         Your name here                           /* optional */
    Author URI:     http://example.com/about/                /* optional */
    Template:       oxygen
    Version:        0.1.0                                    /* optional */
    */
    
    @import url("../oxygen/style.css");
    
    /* Main text color */
    body {
     color: deepskyblue;
    }
    
    /* Post title color for home, archive and search page color */
    .home .hentry .entry-title a:hover,
    .page-template-front .hentry .entry-title a:hover,
    .archive .hentry .entry-title a:hover,
    .search .hentry .entry-title a:hover {
     color: deepskyblue;
    }
    
    /* Post title for other pages */
    a, a:visited, .page-template-front .hfeed-more .hentry .entry-title a:hover, .entry-title a, .entry-title a:visited {
     color: deepskyblue !important;
    }
    
    /* Hover title color */
    .home .hentry .entry-title a:hover,
    .page-template-front .hentry .entry-title a:hover,
    .archive .hentry .entry-title a:hover,
    .search .hentry .entry-title a:hover {
     color: deeppink;
     border-color: deeppink;
    }

    But when you go to http://strangesquatch.tk/blog/ there is no Oxygen theme, it doesn't even look like there is a theme. Am I making a mistake?

    I would try changing the top part to:
    `
    /*
    Theme Name: Strangesquatch Theme
    Template: oxygen
    */

    I think those comments might be causing problems.

    Thank you Andrew and WPyogi! It worked!

    But I yet still have another few questions. When you go to http://strangesquatch.tk/blog/cryptobiology/2013/02/20/the-top-5-cryptids-of-north-america you can still tell that the post title text color is the same as it was--black.

    Also, when I am using the menu bar in WordPress and I'll hover over my blog name, all the options ("Dashboard," "Themes," "Customize," etc.) are the color I chose for the text of my blog.

    Lastly and sorry, when I hover over the featured image of a blog post on the homepage, it says "Read Article" but it's blue.

    Thank you!
