    Hi, I am trying to change the color of the header bar on my site. I found a previous thread that referred to going to appearance-customize-global settings but I can't find 'global settings.'

    You might be able to edit it trough the theme settings like you say, but some themes don't give you that option necessarily. One way to change the color (I assume you want to change the large gray bar area) is to edit the style.css file. If that is the case then use this code

    .site-header {
    background: #FFFFFF;
    }

    The "#FFFFFF" is hexadecimal color which is where you change the color of the bar.
    The best way to do it is through a child theme but if you have more questions just ask.
    Hopefully this helped.

    Wow, THANKS! I was able to get my purple color bar. Now ... I am trying to figure out how to change fonts (color, size, style) I will do a separate post for that. Again, thanks for your help.

    Glad to help. I would recommend, if you haven't already, to make a child theme just because if you update the parent (or regular theme) you may loose the changes.
    There are lots of resource out there on that topic too.
    The idea is the same though.
    Cheers!

    Hi, I am also trying to change the gray bar to white and I did what you suggested (background: #FFFFFF) but nothing seems to be changing. I changed it to a red color just to see the real difference but it is still gray. Any suggestion?
