Static page title color not matching blog title color (11 posts)

    Hi: I'm using a child theme that I modified from the web. My static page title color... http://annmariedavis.com/about-2/ (about me)

    is a different color than the blog generated title color... http://annmariedavis.com/blog1/
    I intended for the title color to be the teal blue, but I really want consistency above all. I am not a coder, I use dreamweaver to alter stylesheets, so I don't mind if you talk to me like I don't speak in css.

    The actual blog page titles are grey, but I don't mind it, because it is consistently grey.

    Thanks.

    -Try using Firefox with the Firebug add-on for this kind of CSS work. http://getfirebug.com/

    I did see it in firebug, but I'm trying to download the css and fix it in dreamweaver. I can see the code for the wrong color, I just don't know the syntax well enough to fix it properly.

    You need to stop using Dreamweaver and learn to create/use CSS in a plain old text editor. You can even test CSS on a live page using Firebug.

    Yes. Well. If wishes and buts were candy and nuts we'd all have a wonderful Christmas. I'm a poet/artist. I'm already out on the teeny branches. I need I need I need more chocolate in my life. More chocolate less dyslexia.

    If you cannot manage this yourself, perhaps you need to consider hiring someone to carry out the work for you.

    You need to add a color to this:

    #content h1.entry-title {
        border-bottom: 2px solid #669999;
        font-size: 28px;
        line-height: 32px;
        margin-bottom: 10px;
        padding-bottom: 5px;
    }

    And certainly agree that you are making things much harder by trying to use Dreamweaver and up/down loading files all the time. Firebug is the way to go -- no question about that.

    Thank you WP yogi. I appreciate your generosity.

    Esmi, I did consider hiring someone. I also considered the jail time I would do for knocking over a liquor store to pay them. But then, I would have lots and lots of time to finish all of my art and writing projects, not to mention all of the friends I would keep for life. Peace.

    Actually, Esmi, I realize that there is a lot of truth to what you are saying. My world is a bitch goddess sometimes, I've already looked at the obvious answers.

    It's not working. I have tried the firebug thing before. I'll come back at it on another day.

    There's no color added to that CSS -- just to be sure you're on the right track -- changes in Firebug are not permanent -- you use it to test changes and then go make the changes in the actual files.
