    How do I change the default and hover color of the social media icons? The gray/black to gray/orange for instance. there a way to modify the color of the blog name if it’s two words so that one word is black and the other is orange? In other words, how do I modify the code so that my blog title is 2 different colors? Thanks!

    Right now, the way the social media icons are set is that they display different opacity on hover. I think that they are set to 60% transparency and then 100% on hover.

    So changing them to grey/orange instead would involve creating a new set of icons and doing lots of css changes.

    Do you have a child theme already in place? If so, I might be able to put some code for you.

    Hi Christine. Okay that’s what I thought. I can handle that. What if I want to change my blog title to two different colors. Is there an easy way to do that? Thanks so much!

    Hmmmm that’s a good question.

    I don’t think that it’s that easy. You may need to either use an image or hardcode your blog title in your header.php of the child theme. Then you could just insert a span and give it a different colour.

    Gotcha. Thanks so much! 🙂

    Hellow Christine..
    Is there a way to make social buttons to open in a new page/tab!
    thanks in advance!!

    Kofoe, this issue needs to be asked on your own thread. It’s difficult to keep-track of who’s having which issues otherwise.

    i thought this post was similar issued so took the risk to ask..
    i will ask in a new thread..apologies

    Kofoe, if you look at the theme templates on line 54 of the header.php is where you will find the first link. You could add target=”blank” to each link.

    Of course it would be better to make a child theme so that your changes don’t get overwritten if there’s a change in the theme, but I don’t plan on making changes to it anytime soon. 🙂

    thank you so much!!!
