    Hi –

    How do you change the text color? There doesn’t seem to be an option in Theme Options.

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    You are correct; there is no option for this, unfortunately. These sorts of modifications to the template outside of the theme options are CSS customization you’d need to make to the theme.

    For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the overriding edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    For example, here’s how you can target the main body text for the theme:

    body {
    	color: #000;
    }

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – http://vimeo.com/20917974. The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.
