    I’ve a novice here but having fun learning.
    Can anyone tell me how to change the color and font of a submit button on the search widget that comes with this theme?

    These kinds of edits are CSS customizations you’ll need to be making to the theme. Specifically for this, we’re not actually using any kind of font; this is a background image. So, you’d need to create a new search icon at a different color and apply that.

    .themeblvd-search input[type="submit"] { background: ...; }

    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 edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – 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.
