    Is there a way to change the font color in the sidebar menu? It is a very dark blue on a black background and some are telling me they cant read it. I wanted to change the font color but cant seem to figure it out.

    Can someone advise?

    Thank You,

    Joe

    Do you have a place in the dashboard to hold your CSS modifications (other than directly in theme files)?

    To change the font colour you will need to make a code modification. Appearance modifications are generally made in CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and this modification is no different.

    Is there an apparent section of the dashboard named, "Custom CSS", "Edit CSS" or "Custom CSS Manager"?

    Under Appearance > Editor I have the following:

    (Style.css)
    (Rtl.css)

    Is one of those what you are referring to?

    No, install this Custom CSS Manager plugin and use its section of the dashboard to hold this code:

    #secondary a { color: deepskyblue; }

    Andrew, I found it. In the theme options there is an option for "Accent Colors". When I changed this color, it changed the font colors i the sidebar. Thank You so much for the offer of help. It really is awesome when others reach out to help. Thats what makes WordPress so awesome is people like you that honestly want to help. Thank You again, so much.
