CSS: Change Font Colors Site-Wide — 5 Comments

  1. THANKS A LOT, MARION, FOR ALL THIS USEFUL INFORMATION!
    Is this working also when you have a specific theme which has theme options for itself? Is it overriding the theme or does the theme override what you insert into the additional CSS section of WordPress?
    Thanks for the info.

    • If you’re using a theme which has lots of options then it makes sense to use the theme’s customizer instead of CSS. The custom CSS is usually the last thing that gets loaded so it overrides anything that comes before it. That being said to force an override when the CSS doesn’t appear to be working you can add !important just before the semi-colon
      e.g.
      p {
      color: #1a1a1a !important;
      }

      • Thank you for the info, that helps – and I understand the meaning of “important” (=override). Learning never ends. And thanks for allowing and enabling us to learn!

  2. Hi Marion,

    Thanks for this excellent video on changing font colors site-wide. I took note of your comment on the website comment exchange group and here I am having a look at your training!

    Now I will go ahead and make the change to a darker font on my website, as what I have had to now is a bit hard to see on some screens plus for people like me with eyesight issues, it is needed.

    My next question for you is anout font size. I like a somewhat bigger font for my posts, is there a way to do a change site wide for that too?

    Thanks a lot for your advice and training, have a great day!

    Dave
