Support » Themes and Templates » [Theme: Pinboard] How to change the font color on sidebar text

  • Hi,

    I recently moved from WP.com to self hosting. I am very new to self hosting and still figuring out how to customize a theme. I am hosting my food blog at http://www.MyWeekendKitchen.in using the Pinboard theme.

    I have a lot of questions, but to start with how do I change the font color on the side bars? Currently it is very light grey and not so easy to read.

    Thanks!
    Ashima

    Does your theme have custom CSS or another way to make changes without modifying the theme files? If not, first create a child theme — so that you won’t lose all your changes when the theme is updated.

    Once you’ve done that, this is the CSS that is setting that color — assuming you mean the links that are hard to read:

    .widget-area a {
        color: #7597B9;
    }

    So you can copy that to the child theme style.css file and then change the color code.

    The best way to work with CSS is by using Firebug – which lets you look at what CSS is affecting elements on a page.

    The theme does have a custom CSS.

    Thanks downloading firebug now.. I have to change the font type and colour at so many places that I didn’t know how to ask in forum! 🙂
