Changing the color of the site description?

Solved Changing the color of the site description?

Post by Jellydonut on January 6th 2012, 4:31 am

The site description on my site is useful, but its black, and totally stands out of my light blue themed forum. I tried using BB code to change the color, but that doesn't work. Its not possible to not have a site description. Is there any way to make it a different color?

Or add to Stylesheet:
Code:
div.maintitle h1{
color: #COLOR !important;
}
Here you have to choose the color: http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_colors.asp

Thank you both!
One more question, is changing the color the only thing I can do to it, or can I also make it bold or change the font?
If there is, can I have a code for that?

Thank you! This post probably helped the most
The code seems to work, but the color still isn't changing, so I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I'll probably figure it out...

Hi,

Did you add your color code in it where it says #COLOR !important; ?

color: #COLOR !important; You need to replace #COLOR by a color name, or a hex color. Read http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_colors.asp

Try Sanket's code. That code goes to the site description field. Smile

Yay! It worked
I thought I was supposed to put that code in the CSS, that's probably why it failed
So do I do the same thing for bold?
