Support » Fixing WordPress » Imbalance Theme Title and Hover Colours

  • Resolved anniedemer


    Hello everyone, thanks for reading my post.

    I have just installed WordPress and am really excited about it, but I have a couple of problems that are holding me back.

    The first and most important issue is that I cannot seem to get the Imbalance title to change to my blog title. I have tried customising the theme and going into “settings” to alter it, but to no avail! I’d really like some help!

    Secondly, I would like to be able to change the hover colour from its default red. Can anyone help me with this as well?

    As I said, the first issue is the one that is really, really bothering me. ANY help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you all,

  • Hi anniedemer,

    1. Checking out the Imbalance theme, it appears that the ‘Imbalance’ text is actually a logo image that comes with the theme. If you navigate in your Dashboard to Appearance > Theme options, you’ll want to find the section that looks like this:
      There doesn’t appear to be a way to just disable the logo, but you can certainly upload your own logo image in its place. Just look for the section marked ‘Upload your logo’.
    2. If the ‘hover colour’ you’re referring to is the red links used in the theme, you’ll need to edit your stylesheet (Navigate to Appearance > Editor > style.css). The rule you’re looking to edit should be this one:
      li.article .postmetadata a {
        color: #FF3706 !important;

      Just change #FF3706 to whichever color you’d like to use. You can use to get the hex code for any color you like.

      Hope that helps.

    Oh Drew, thank you so much! I was actually having a poke about the Appearance Editor and also realised that it’s a logo – what a numpty!

    That was all very, very helpful, thank you for such a quick response! I’m actually completely distracted at the moment, looking at your site – it’s awesome.

    I hope this helps other people as well, it goes to show how awesome the WordPress support is!


    Happy to help. Don’t forget to mark the thread as resolved 🙂

    Blast, the colour still doesn’t seem to be working! Does anyone (Drew included) have any further thoughts at all?!

    Sorry guys, I thought I it was sorted 🙁


    Were you referring to the text color or the red lines when you over over ‘Uncategorized’ for instance?

    To change the color of the red lines, the rule you’d be looking for in style.css is this:

    #categories ul li a:hover, #archives ul li a:hover {
        border-bottom: 1px solid #FF3706;
        border-top: 1px solid #FF3706;

    Aha, I have it! Many thanks for all your help Drew, I was indeed referring to those red lines, but I have now transformed them into my preferred and slightly weird mustard yellow colour 🙂

    I’ll mark the thread as resolved now, your help was great, I really appreciate it.

    Many thanks again!
