Site Title Color and Font - I read through other threads (6 posts)

    Hey - Noob here. I read through other threads before posting a new one.

    Anyways, I wanted to change the website title's color, font, and size. I was able to install a plugin that enabled me to install whatever fonts I want, and I designated h1 (site title) to be a specific font I uploaded.

    However, I wanted to make the site title (h1) a different color (and possibly larger), and I went into the CSS style sheet and edited it to say:

    .site-title {
    margin: 0 0 0.5%;
    line-height: 1;
    text-align: center;
    color: #d33434;
    word-wrap: break-word;
    }

    However, this (and many other attempts at looking at the h1 and header code) has had the desirable effect I wanted.

    For reference, I am using the "Decode" wordpress theme. As an fyi, I just got a new server from bluehost and uploaded wordpress into it for my band's website. We already have our domain purchased a while ago from another company, and the nameservers were orignally pointed to a different host, but I just changed them to blue host. I don't know if I can really adjust this stuff while waiting to add the permanent domain names to wordpress. Again, I'm pretty novice at this stuff.

    Thanks for the help in advance!!

    if the div that the H1 is in is class site-title

    do

    .site-title H1{
    margin: 0 0 0.5%;
    line-height: 1;
    text-align: center;
    color: #d33434;
    word-wrap: break-word;
    }

    I'm sorry, but I really don't follow what you're saying (again I'm novice).

    Hey Jondom22,

    can you provide a link to your site? this helps people know exactly what code would help without any doubts or question.

    on the host thing, usually once you update the dns it can take a half hour to 3 days for the changes to propagate. Usually takes an hour or so depending on where you are. However, with most hosts there is a way to access your site via it's ip address on your shared server.

    see this bluehost support page on the topic https://my.bluehost.com/cgi/help/wordpress_url

    although for the hassle it might be best to wait till the dns propagates :)

    Danny :)
