how do i make widget text darker for sparkling theme?

Hello, there are many questions like this, but your answer does not work for me:

  1. To change font color for widgets you can add this code to Theme Options – Other – Custom CSS. This Custom CSS uses red color as an example but you can change it to any color you any by replacing color code. For example black would be #111 darker gray would be #555 etc.
.well .textwidget {
    color: #F00;

It does not work. The letters are still too light. Please help!

Try adding this code to Theme Options - Other - Custom CSS:

#secondary .widget {
    color: #111;

#secondary .widget a {
    color: #f00;

First part of this code will change color for regular text and second part of code will change color for links. Use 1st, 2nd or both parts of this code snippet and replace color code with one you want to use.

Let me know if you need any further assistance with this.

Thank you for the answer. But it does not work. Any other suggestions?

Thank you very much!

Ok, I see. Maybe try to replace existing code with this one:

#secondary .widget {
    color: #111 !important;

#secondary .widget a {
    color: #f00 !important;

Yes, that worked!!! Thank you so much!
