    Hi there,
    I am trying to use a css code to be able to change the font size and colour of my tagline – I have managed to do this for the title – but no matter what I try I cannot get the tagline to change. Please can someone help with this.
    Kind regards
    Mike

    An example:

    #masthead p.site-description {
        color: green;
        font-size: 200%;
    }

    To add or override CSS: use the “Additional CSS” option in the customizer. https://wordpress.org/support/article/appearance-customize-screen/

    Learn to use the Chrome Developer Tools or Firefox Developer Tools to help you see and test changes to your CSS.

    Thank you so much for this, it worked a treat 🙂

    I don’t suppose you know the CSS for changing the menu bar background colour (I have tried several variations and cant get this one either).

    Thank you so much for your help.

    Kind regards

    nav#site-navigation {
        background: blue; /* or whatever */
    }

    Thank you so much for this you are an absolute star – funnily we tried .nav site-navigation {background: black;} but it did not work.
    Just a few more questions if you do not mind:
    What would we do to change the text colour in the navigation bar?

    Also, is there a way to change the background colour of the posts on the blog page?

    We changed the header font using – header {Font-family: “Papyrus”;} – but for some odd reason the font-weight doesn’t not work (we were trying to bold it and add/or add a shadow) – am I doing this incorrectly under the header css? How would we change this to make it either bold or add a white shadow to it?

    Thanks for your help – it is amazing how much the CSS changes from one theme to the next – such subtle changes, but enough to throw you for a loop.

    Kind regards and thank you again for your speedy responses and help.
