    Hi Jamie,

    I’m getting completely lost on where to change some fonts and colours. Also not sure if the ones giving me trouble are within the Canvas options or WordPress generally. I’ve spent hours changing font colours just to try and identify which settings change which fonts on the page. Is there a simple way of identifying where the settings are for each? I’ve worked out most by tedious trial and error, but have a few I can’t find or change. For example, on the Gracewood site how do I change the font and colour for the Blog page post listings under Recent Posts and Archives – they are currently in blue. Thanks in anticipation of your help.

    Hi Patrick,

    Can you share a link to the page in question, and I will take a look for you :)

    Hi Jamie,

    Th example is on every page of my site – the blue font of the post listings under Recent Posts and Archives. I just can’t find it anywhere!

    Hi Patrick,

    Those are links, hence why they are coloured blue.

    My recommendation would be that you leave them as blue – as this is a well known convention for links.

    However if you want to change the colour, go to Canvas / Theme Options / Styling and Layout and change the ‘Link Color’

    Let me know if that works :)

    It was more the font and the size. I still can’t find how to change that.

    Hi Patrick,

    You can change those in Canvas / Theme Options / Styling and Layout / Widgets

    Feeling really slow now..! I can’t see which option under Widgets changes the post text titles. I’ve tried a few, just to see if anything changes, but the option names are confusing – which one changes the font size of the post listings?

    Hi Patrick,

    It’s the widget text option. Just change the size in there.

    Thanks Jamie, sorted. What fooled me was that the Widget text item had its colour set to grey. I was looking for items throughout the whole dashboard that had a text colour setting for blue. Didn’t understand that all widget text for posts shows as a link i.e. blue. Links = blue, regardless of text colour setting. Hope that helps others – I’ve spend hours looking!
