    How do I change the default and hover color of the social media icons? The gray/black to gray/orange for instance.

    Also..is there a way to modify the color of the blog name if it's two words so that one word is black and the other is orange? In other words, how do I modify the code so that my blog title is 2 different colors? Thanks!

    Right now, the way the social media icons are set is that they display different opacity on hover. I think that they are set to 60% transparency and then 100% on hover.

    So changing them to grey/orange instead would involve creating a new set of icons and doing lots of css changes.

    Do you have a child theme already in place? If so, I might be able to put some code for you.

    Hi Christine. Okay that's what I thought. I can handle that. What if I want to change my blog title to two different colors. Is there an easy way to do that? Thanks so much!

    Hmmmm that's a good question.

    I don't think that it's that easy. You may need to either use an image or hardcode your blog title in your header.php of the child theme. Then you could just insert a span and give it a different colour.

    Kofoe, this issue needs to be asked on your own thread. It's difficult to keep-track of who's having which issues otherwise.

    Kofoe, if you look at the theme templates on line 54 of the header.php is where you will find the first link. You could add target="blank" to each link.

    Of course it would be better to make a child theme so that your changes don't get overwritten if there's a change in the theme, but I don't plan on making changes to it anytime soon. :)
