    Thanks

    Also (sorry!) how do I change the title colour on each page I've created, for example I've set my pages as about us, prices, contact us etc, the navigation bar colours are fine but on each page you have a title for that page and this is still black I want #8A2BE2

    Whenever you open a new thread, please post a link to your site, even if you've done so on other threads; then we don't have to go hunting around for it. I presume this is your site:

    It looks like you've made your changes directly to the TwentyThirteen style.css file. You should be warned that you shouldn't be modifying the theme files directly because there's a good chance that you will lose your changes if/when the theme gets updated because of security patches, feature updates, etc. Instead, you should create a child theme or, if you are just making CSS changes, use a plugin like Custom CSS Manager.

    I've set all the colours I want but can't seem to change the brown footer block just above the "powered by word press" footer

    How did you try changing it? If you use a web debugging tool like Firebug or Chrome Developer Tools, you'll see that the brown area is your secondary widget area, and the background color is set by this CSS rule:

    .site-footer .sidebar-container {
    background-color: #220e10;
    padding: 20px 0;
    }

    So to change the background color, you would add a rule to either your child theme's style.css file or through your plugin's Custom CSS option that looks like this:

    .site-footer .sidebar-container {
    background-color: #8A2BE2;
    }

    how do I change the title colour on each page I've created

    Again, if you use a web debugging tool like Firebug or Chrome Developer Tools, you'll see that your page titles have a class called entry-title, so to change the color of your page titles, you'd add this to the end of your child theme's style.css file or in your plugin's Custom CSS option:

    .entry-title {
    color: #8A2BE2;
    }

    Just above the brown footer on each page is a leave reply section, I would like to remove this! How??

    From your admin dashboard, go to Settings > Discussion, uncheck the box labeled Allow people to post comments on new articles so that new pages don't get commented on. Then you need to disable comments for each page:

    1. From the admin dashboard, go to Pages > All Pages
    2. Click the checkbox next to the Title heading so that all of your pages are selected
    3. From the drop-down box that currently has Bulk Actions selected, pick Edit.
    4. Click the Apply button.
    5. A section will open up beneath the heading. For the Comments drop-down, select Do not allow, then click the blue Update button to the right.

    Comments will now have been disabled for all of your pages.

    CrouchingBruin, thanks for the detailed reply! I encountered the same issue and apparently had mistyped one of the elements in

    .site-footer .sidebar-container {
    background-color: #8A2BE2;
    }

    Your response confirmed that I was on the right track, and when I copy-pasted it into my code it worked.
