Change site title color for Activello WordPress theme

I know this is probably super easy, but I’ve looked everywhere and can’t find it. I am trying to just change the site title away from the super light gray color in to something more readable. I can’t find where to change it and I’m not sure what the tag is for CSS to change it either.

The website is:

Thanks so much for the help!

Hi @iamjmw,

I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

You can try achieving this by adding the following CSS code in the Custom CSS option of your theme on the below path.

Admin Area -> Appearance -> Customize -> Activello Options -> Other -> Custom CSS

a.navbar-brand {
    color: #CA5E5E;

a.navbar-brand:hover {
    color: #5ECA77;

Please change the color value in the above code to whatever you want to use by referring the following pages.

Best Regards,

Just curious, why would such a difficult-to-notice-and-read color be used as the default title color?

To give you some context behind my question, it’s a beautiful theme and I’d love to use it, but I will be automating the creation (and recreation/reconstruction, etc.) of this blog, and if I have to try to automate the manipulation of theme options in the data base, I will probably just try to find a different theme…which I’d rather not do.

Thanks for authoring and providing the theme.

@keithrbennett I requested the theme developer to change default site color on the following page so that it will be more visible.

Currently to change this color you don’t have to manipulate theme options in the data base but use the above CSS code in the theme options provided in the admin area.

@Movin Thank you for making that request.

I’m aware that regular users don’t need to manipulate the data base, but in my case I want to automate the installation, configuration, and population of the blog. Therefore, I’m trying to replace all manual user input (e.g. using the WordPress administrative interfaces) with shell scripts, Ansible playbooks, etc. There’s a lot that can be done this way, especially with the very helpful WP-CLI (WordPress Command Line Interface) tool.

If that CSS were stored internally by the theme in a text file, that would be much easier. However, as I understand it, it is stored in the data base (as is customarily done by themes in general, I think).

@keithrbennett You are most welcome here :slight_smile:

Yes i can understand your approach and agree with you.
