    Normal link color is too close to text color. I only want to change the regular link color as you are reading.

    I cannot find where in the CSS stylesheet to change the color. Can someone please tell me where in the Style.css to make this change?

    Thanks,
    Susan

  • Hey Susan,

    How are you today?

    You should be able to change color of the links in your content with some custom CSS.

    To do that please try adding the following CSS code in the style.css file of your child theme or add it in your site using the following plugin:

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-custom-css

    .entry-content a {
        color: #265e15;
    }

    You’ll have to replace color hex value to display another color. You can use sites similar to this one to get hex value for the color of your choice: http://www.color-hex.com/

    Hope this helps 🙂

    Cheers,
    Bojan

    Thanks so much! I had Jetpack installed, so did the custom CSS through that and it worked!

    How do I save the custom css offline so I can put it back in when the theme is updated? I do FTP everything, but not sure where this is stored.

    Hey again Susan,

    Glad to hear code is working. If you used Jetpack custom CSS or custom CSS plugin I mentioned above your CSS is safe from theme updates since it is not actually located inside theme files so you have nothing to worry about 🙂

    Have a great weekend!

    Cheers,

    Terrific. Just one more question. When I make a change, it doesn’t update the website immediately after saving. Even after I clear the cache it takes quite awhile. Is there a fix for that?

    Thank you so much!

    Oh, also, how do I add that the link (decoration) should be underlined? Thank!

    It really depends what you mean by clearing cache, if you’re clearing cache in your browser that will not help if you’re using caching plugins for example. In this case you’ll have to clear cache somewhere inside plugin options.

    Oh, also, how do I add that the link (decoration) should be underlined?

    Replace the code above with this one:

    .entry-content a {
        color: #265e15;
        text-decoration: underline;
    }
