Support » Theme: BlackBird » Changing the text color of widgets

  • I need a bit of help! I’m trying to change the text color of the titles of my widgets. At this point, the titles are defaulting to white and are blending in with the white footer wrapper i’ve created.

    If you go to my page, scroll down and highlight the white space above the widgets at the footer. The text is definitely showing up, it’s just a matter of changing the color.

    Can someone help me find the part of the css i can edit, or something to add in to change the color to something more suitable? I tried installing firebug, but i couldn’t figure it out. Thanks a ton for your help. (I’m using the free version of blackbird)

  • Hey Alison,
    Thanks for emailing me.

    I sure can help.
    The line of code you need to change is #1467 and is placed in your style.css file.

    This is the code

    .footer h1, .footer h2, .footer h3, .footer h4, .footer h5, .footer h6 {
        color: #FFFFFF;
        font-size: 26px;
        padding-bottom: 12px;

    You need to change #FFFFFF
    To any other color code you wish, like #040404

    And I also advise you to make all these css code canghes in your child theme.

    Hi James!

    This worked perfectly. Thanks so much for your help today. I will definitely be reaching out to you in the future for stylistic questions. In the meantime, I’ll work on setting up a child theme.. although I’m nervous I’ll somehow mess up. Is it easy to transfer the changes i’ve already made to the site to the child theme? I’m worried they’ll somehow get lost.


    Well, if you follow the guide I gave you it should work.
    I’ve done it myself.

    And yes, feel free to get in touch if you have any type of wordpress “hiccups”.

    I’m constantly learning something new and trying to help others as I go with what I have managed to learn so far.

    And if I don’t know something I’ll always have someone else to recommend or somewhere to point you 🙂

    And actually I’m even working on a site where I’ll be posting anything new I learn about WP and talk about most frequently asked questions.

    I’ll keep you updated on that.
    Good Luck Alison 😉

    James Richman
