    Within an hour, I realised that installing Jetpack fixes this problem in a sense, as it adds the functionality within the Customizer. That being said, as there isn’t a native option from within the theme, the result still shows the text-based blog title and description, requiring me to remove the placeholders within header.php for the space to shrink and accomodate just the logo.

    You should be able to hide the site description and tagline within the Customizer’s Site Identity panel in any theme, by unchecking the box next to “Display Header Text.”

    No file edits needed! Let me know how it goes.

    Also, if you’ve made other modifications to the theme files, just a heads-up that the best way to make changes to a theme is to use a child theme, otherwise your tweaks will be overwritten every time you update the theme. Here are some guides in case you haven’t made one before:

    Whoops! Did not notice that was there. Worked perfectly.

    One more query. I wanted the hover color for all hyperlink elements to be a shade of grey, instead of the the default green. WPcom allows for seamless changes on its customiser, but once again I can’t find this on a Jetpack-enabled site, and had to resort to replacing the 27 mentions of the color HEX in the stylesheet. Is there a CSS attribute I could add-in to set the hover color to whatever I wish?

    Sure! Again, don’t edit the theme files directly, otherwise your changes will be overwritten every time the theme is updated. Since you’re already using Jetpack, an easy way to add custom CSS is to activate the Custom CSS module. You’ll then add your custom CSS in the new stylesheet editor that’ll appear in your dashboard, under Appearance > Edit CSS.

    The main CSS declaration to override the default colour of anchor tags in posts and pages in Boardwalk would be:

    a, .entry-content a {
      color: #bb00bb;
    }

    Replace the example purple with anything you like.

    You can use a browser inspector to find other CSS rules that you may want to change as well.

    I also created a Gist for Boardwalk’s custom colour scheme if you prefer to start with that:

    https://gist.github.com/kathrynwp/68ee7fb4d0ac56766e551efd81b325ed

    This is the blue colour scheme you get on WordPress.com via the Customizer’s Colors & Background’s panel, but you can change the colours to anythig you like. It will change more than just links, but everything that’s green by default in Boardwalk’s default colour scheme.
