How to change font/color of text for page titles? (3 posts)

    My site is starting to look decent via all the custom controls, but now I'm trying to tweak things that can only be changed in CSS (which I have limited knowledge of). The default text for page titles in my theme do not match the style of the rest of my site (they are large, blue, and not a good matching font). How do I go about changing these attributes for only the page title text? There are so many references to text in my style.css that I don't know which ones to change or how to locate the correct one. Thanks for any help!

    The best thing to use is Firebug or for IE hit F12 (brings up developer tools).

    You can identify which css controls what and make changes in the css. But you should also check this, http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes as changes to the css should be made this way.

    This work is done using a web inspection tool such as Firebug, Chrome Inspect Element, or IE's Developer Tools...among others.

    Using these tools will reveal the classes and/or id's used for the elemement(s) in question.

    This will involve learning/knowing CSS...

    That said there are a few plugins that may help with some elements...just make sure it's one listed here, well used, and up to date...
