    Glad you like the theme!

    First, I’d suggest creating a child theme for any modifications. You can download a child theme template from my themes website if you need one, or you can follow the instructions here.

    Once that’s done, you can add some code to your child theme’s style.css to change the link colors, something like this should work:

    .navigation .alignleft a,
    .navigation .alignright a {
        color: #000000; //Change to the hex code for your desired color

    I also recommend using a program like Firebug. You can use it to “inspect” the website and find out what styles are being applied to which elements on the page for future CSS issues like this.

    Thanks so much for this beautiful template. I LOVE IT! And I am jealous that you know how to create such wonderful pages. Would you tell me, is it possible to make some minor changes to Scrappy without a child site? I would like to change the post title color from light blue to a bit of a darker blue and I would like to change the light green boxes on the right to a bit of a darker green? Would you please tell me how to make those changes directly?

    You can make changes without a child theme, yes, but the next time the theme is updated you risk your changes being wiped out.

    The post title color can be changed in style.css, something like this should work:

    h1.entry title,
    h1.entry-title a {
       color: #000;

    The boxes in the sidebar use a graphic background. You can either edit style.css and remove the background-image property from h2.widget-title, then change the background-color property to the green of your choice. Alternatively, you could make a new background graphic and overwrite the existing background image in the img folder.

    Like for the poster above, I recommend using Firebug for this kind of CSS work… makes finding the classes and line numbers much quicker!

    (Please post any future q’s in a new thread since this one’s quite old. Thanks!)

    Thanks! I hope you like the color we chose. Sorry for posting here but I did not see where to create a new thread.

    Hi I have a blog through wordpress using your wonderful scrappy theme and hosted by It’s A friend was helping me with the FB Share that had somehow disappeared. Anyway we now seem locked out of the site to fix the error. nothing we try lets us back into the site to fix the problem. do you have any suggestions. This is the message we get.
