Support » Themes and Templates » Change Colours in Sandfish Theme

  • I would like to change the colour scheme in the Sandfish wordpress theme. Can someone suggest:

    How I change the colour of the heading name, the header bar underneath it, the tag line, the post headings.

    Also how do I remove the icon next to the heading name?

    Is it possible to upload a jpg picture to the header to go next to the heading of the site?

    Thankyou for your time. Rachel

    You do this in the theme’s stylesheet: theme.css.
    for the heading name look for:

    div.container.header div.header h1 a {
      font-size: 2.25em;
      color: #f30;
      letter-spacing: -4px;
      font-weight: normal;

    And change the color: #f30; to whatever color you want with a colorpicker
    For the header bar look for:

    ul.topnav li a {
      color: #fff;
    ul.topnav li.current_page_item a, ul.topnav li.current_page_ancestor a {
      color: #FFD700;

    and change the colors.
    same for the tagline:

    div.container.header div.header div.description {
      color: #888;
      font-size: 0.95em;
      margin: 0.5em 0;
      margin-left: 20px;

    And postheadings:

    h2.title a {
      color: #f30;
      text-decoration: none;

    To remove the picture look for:

    div.container.header div.header.inner {
      background: url(../image/logo.png) left center no-repeat;
      padding: 20px 0 10px 60px;
      border: 1px solid #fff;

    remove background: url(../image/logo.png) left center no-repeat;
    Or put an image of your liking in the theme’s “image” folder and change the url part to url(../image/my_image.jpg)
