    We have a background picture so we want all our page and post titles and text to be in back. I am unable to change page/post title colour - they are orange. Plus the bullet points in the content of page/post are also orange. Can this be changed?

    Hey RedScuba,

    This can definitely be changed. If your theme does not give you the option to change them, you can always complete this by creating a child theme, and copy and pasting custom code into its style sheet.

    Do you have the link to your website so I can check it out for you?

    Cheers!

    Could you explain this in a little more detail using a specific example?

    I am unable to change page/post title colour - they are orange. Plus the bullet points in the content of page/post are also orange.

    Another option to change colors would be to use a CSS editor such as the one that comes with the Jetpack plugin.

    Using the Sunspot theme demo site as an example, here is some CSS you could start with to change the links, site title, menu links, linked post titles, and small screen menu links from orange to white:

    a,
    a:visited,
    .site-title,
    .site-title a,
    .main-navigation li a,
    .entry-title a {
    	color: #fff;
    }
    @media (max-width: 650px) {
    	.menu-toggle {
    		color: #fff;
    	}
    }

    You can pick and choose what selectors you want to keep and you can change #fff to a different color code.

    I looked for orange colored bullets on posts at http://sunspotdemo.wordpress.com/ but couldn't find any. I would recommend right-clicking on the bullets you're seeing them show up as orange so you can look around in the HTML and CSS panels to see if you can find where the color is getting set. Here is a guide to help with learning how to find CSS in case you need it:

    @designsimply:Thank you contributing to the forums but please do not encourage people to edit theme files directly. At best, they will lose all of their changes when they update the theme. At worst, they could bring their site down. They should be recommended to create a child theme or use a custom CSS plugin for their changes.

    @esmi, editing theme files directly is not a good idea, and I don't recommend doing that.

    In my earlier reply, I suggested using the custom CSS editor that comes with the Jetpack plugin.
