  • How do I change the default gray font color.
    Can I have the link to change all the writing colors on my page from the gray to purple( I have the code).
    I will like to change all the fonts in the back end to make them generate purple instead of the gray.

  • Hi Abena,

    !! Make a backup of your site, before making any changes.
    !! Make changes in a childtheme!!

    Make changes to style.css:

    Add to the bottom of the css-file:

    *, p,h1,h2,h3{color:#800080;}

    I know there is a custom CSS. But where is the childtheme.
    I did some manual font color changes under custom CSS. I’m just not show what the childtheme is.

    If you have custom CSS, you don’t need a child theme (unless you want to make other changes to theme files — i.e. php files). You can just add the above code to the custom CSS section.

    This explains a child theme:

    Oh I see. Thanks I’ll make a back up b4 any changes too.

    So does this link always need to be the last on the custom CSS.
    I ask because I started custom CSS on different colors font sizes on different parts of the site.
    Just wanted to be sure if the link you gave should always stay the last link?
    Also the code you gave is it a type of purple?


    That code wasn’t from me :). You can put it anyplace in the custom CSS file – it’s only if you are adding it to the existing style.css file (not a good idea) that it should go at the end.

    What would the code do.
    Would the default writing be purple or after adding the code are there anymore changes I need to do.

    Without looking at your site, I can’t answer that. Try it and see – you can take it out if you don’t like it. Or post a link to your site so someone can look at it.

    Or maybe let me ask another way.
    What did you think the code would if I insert it?

    It will change a lot of the text on the site to purple. Specifically, that CSS says to change all elements (* = all elements) and p, h1, h2 and h3 tags to purple.

    It won’t change all text on the site, however, because some other CSS styles are more “specific” and have other colors defined.

    Thanks It worked for the headers and my site didn’t break.
    Any links to change the body or do I do them one at a time?

    I’m new at wordpress and coding and manage to change a lot of things with some tips I got here. But I was not able to change the color of the home page headings or the footer.
