Support » Theme: Ignite » Change footer color; change text color

  • Resolved Todd Marchand


    Hi. I’d like to change the footer color, the text color for page/post titles, and the text color for the body of pages/posts.

    I’m guessing this can be done with Customize > Additional CSS, but I didn’t find pre-made CSS snippets for these. Can you help?

    Also, is there a tutorial or simple instructions for changing a style element with Additional CSS? That is, is it a matter of copying a portion of the CSS style sheet (creating one’s own snippet), adjusting the portion copied, and pasting it in Additional CSS?

    Hey Todd,

    You can use this CSS to make all three of these changes:

    .site-footer {
      background: #cecece;
    .entry-content {
      color: #cecece;
    .excerpt-title a {
      color: #cecece;

    The first part is for the footer background, then the post text color, and lastly post/page the titles. I used light gray so you can see it take effect, but you can modify the hex codes to any color you’d like.

    I would recommend writing the snippets rather than copying from the stylesheet. I’ve got a tutorial here that can help you with finding selectors to use. Then it’s a matter of choose the right property like “color” or “background.”

    The Additional CSS section is the best place to add all of this code.

    Thanks! Very helpful — I’ll look at the tutorial. Really enjoying the Ignite theme, and having fun customizing it to carry forward my existing branding.
