[resolved] Unable to change tagline color and main wrap color on pages other than Home (8 posts)

    Question 1: Trying to figure out how to change the tagline font color on my site (http://www.larrydmorrison.com/) top left-hand corner directly under the logo. I have done a lot of googlin on this issue and the only CSS code that comes close is the following. Unfortunately this code only changes font-size but does not change the color at all. I assume there must be some code in the theme that is overriding what I am trying to add to the custom CSS.

    .desc {
    font-size: 15px;
    color: #ff9900;
    }

    Question 2: Trying to change the main wrap color (color behind posts on Home page) on the Meet Me, Ministry and Media pages but there does not seem to be a way to do this in the theme options. Would like for this change to apply to any new pages created on this site as well.

    TIA for any help!

    Hi,
    Use the !important in the custom css for overriding other theme css.

    .desc {
    font-size: 15px !important;
    color: #ff9900 !important;
    }

    Thank you for the reply King. I added the !important to the custom css as you suggested like below but font is still dark grey. Any other ideas?

    .desc {
    font-size: 15px !important;
    color: #ffffff !important;
    }

    Like this:

    .desc p {
    font-size: 15px;
    color: #ff9900;
    }

    For the background behind your posts:

    .ch_main {
    background: <some colour>;
    }

    Thank you WPRanger! That worked for the tagline. Any idea on question 2? There appears to be no way in the theme options to modify the main wrap for any pages other than Home. What custom css would I need to add to modify the main wrap (background color and font color) for the Meet Me, Ministry and Media pages?

    Thanks,
    Bryan

    WPRanger ch_main only changes the background behind the posts on the Home page. Any idea how I would do this on the other pages like Meet Me? Thank you again for the reply.

    Disregard the last question. Added the !important to ch_main and that forced the changed on the other pages as well. Thank you both for the assistance.
