  • Resolved Carmen


    Hello, beautiful template congrats to you…

    The home menu font colors seem too dark and I would like to change it, how may I do that?

    I don’t know anything about CSS but I can read some coding, to find what I’m looking for – I looked for hours on the CSS editor and all I found were the block squares for the tags.

    I am also curious about hyperlinking in red only on my posts – is that possible?

  • Hi! That is a cool template!

    I like the red hyperlinks you have in your posts! Looks like you already fixed that!

    I agree, the font color on the navigation is a bit dark…I picked up the gray from the train tracks…. try pasting this into your Custom CSS:

    /*Change Color of Navigation Font*/
    .main-navigation a {
    color: #cdcfbb;



    Hello BjScott,

    Thank you so very much, that was easy. I choose a different color to match the color scheme on the template #e6c4b0 is a very soft orange.

    so thank you again for that information.

    red-hyperlinks on my post… to me they do not appear that way, they seem to match the colors of the block squares for the tags.

    also I would like to change the color scheme tot he menus on the widgets, as well, do you know the coding for that?

    please help and thank you again!

    Try this: For Widget Heading Font colors, change where it is now #BLUE to the #color you want.(Choose Blue so it would be obvious where all it changes it!) If you want to change the color of the heading box around the text..change where it now says #100D0A;

    /*Change Color of Widget Headings*/
    #secondary .widget-title, #footer-sidebar .widget-title {
       background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #100D0A;
       color: #blue;

    This will change the list of links of each catagory or blog to a red:

    /*Change Widget Link Colors*/
    #secondary a, #footer-sidebar a {
      color: #d25349;

    Seems like Resolved by BjScott. Thank you.

    I’m very silly on this kind of things…I’m not able to change color menu like BJscott did. Maybe it’s because I don’t know where Exactly paste the…
    /*Change Color of Navigation Font*/
    .main-navigation a {
    color: #cdcfbb;

    Please help me!

    Dashboard>> Sixteen Settings>>Layout settings>>paste the code into the Custom CSS box and save. Easy Peasey

    🙂 Thanks a lot!


    With the wordpress 4.1 . I couldn’t find layout settings anymore.. but rather ‘Editor’ . I paste the code to the custom CSS it still doesn’t change.

    Thank you,
