How Do I Change Link Colors in Narga Theme? (9 posts)

    Hello,

    I'm using the Narga theme on this site: http://www.itissochoice.com and I've been trying to figure out how I can change many of the blue links and headers to another color. I've been googling and reading through this forum but it seems the information doesn't apply to the Narga theme.

    If anyone can offer some suggestions, I'd be greatly appreciative.

    Many thanks,

    Matt

    Goto - /themes/narga/stylesheets/foundation.min.css?ver=2013-08-12

    Search - `a {
    color: #2BA6CB;`

    Change the colour to whatever you wish.

    Then search - `a:hover, a:focus {
    color: #2795B6;`

    Change the hover colour to whatever you wish.

    Hi CombatPost,

    I apologize, but you may need to hold my hand a little more, new to WordPress and very new to CSS and the whole stylesheet thing.

    When I'm in the admin page of the site, I can go to Appearance>Editor and I find myself at the stylesheet but I don't see "foundation" nor do I find the color codes you've listed when I search the page/sheet.

    Can you tell me what I'm missing? Sorry for being a newb.

    Hi Matt,

    Don't worry, we've all been new. Do you have FTP access for the website in question?

    My partner who works on the site figured it out though I'm still in the dark on it. I've asked him to follow up on this thread to explain in case future users are having the same issue.

    Alright. Go to your webhosting/ftp (ours is godaddy)

    navigate to the files you're hosting on your wordpress site.

    Then, navigate to - /themes/narga/stylesheets/foundation.min.css like CombatPost said. Open up the file in the editor, or some way you can change it through notepad or whatever. Find the colour using ctrl +F

    Then go to a site that has HTML colour codes.. example: http://html-color-codes.info/

    Copy and paste your new colour over the old one in the file. Save it, and you're done.

    goodluck!

    It's actually very inadvisable to change theme files - those changes will be lost when the theme is updated.

    A better approach is to use a custom CSS plugin or a child theme -

    Ah, good point. Thank you for that link, we'll have to set up the Child Theme.
