Support » Fixing WordPress » Editing text colour

  • Hi, I’m adjusting old posts by replacing photos with smaller file sizes. However, when I go to WordPress editor it changes the colour of some of the text to black as default. I previously had all of the links set as royal blue, but when I go in the colour reverts back only on some of them.

    This wasn’t a problem yesterday and I edited several posts like this without any changes.

    I also can’t see any way to change the colour in WordPress as I used to in the past. This means using Elementor just to change the colour of that text, but Elementor doesn’t leave spaces between photo captions and the next paragraph like when I use the block format in WordPress editor. If I add a space between the photo caption and the next paragraph in Elementor I get a much larger space between them.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Hi @stufahy

    Add this CSS in Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS section:

    p {
        color: #000000;
    }

    And you will get texts like this: https://prnt.sc/sljtud 🙂

    Hi Animesh, thanks for your reply.

    I’ve input the CSS code where you instructed but I can’t see any changes. I am still unable to change colour of individual text in WordPress editor. The only text colour options available are to change the entire block.

    I can change the colour in Elementor but that changes the layout and switching between the two editors loses the changes I make in each editor.

    Do you want to change the color of the text in WordPress Editor?

    Can you please share the screenshot just to confirm?

    Ideally yes, I’d like to change the text colour in WordPress editor as the format style is better in there.

    From the original link I shared above you can see some of my linked articles are highlighted blue and others not (just bolded and don’t stand out so much). They were originally all highlighted blue and I’d like to change the others to blue too. I have no idea why it reformatted only half of the changed text colours?

    Actually I think I’ve found it now. I just had to look a little harder for it. Assuming this does what I want then I’m all good.

    Thanks for your help Animesh.

    1. You can change the color of individual text in the WordPress editor. I have made a video to show you. Please visit here: https://imgur.com/a/onl3IHZ

    2. Because you have applied this CSS:

    p {
        color: #000000;
    }

    So now all things are looking perfect (black text and links are in blue).
