    Hello theme dev,

    I have a blog post here: https://dailyanimeart.com/2016/04/29/death-note-2016-live-action-film-characters-and-video-teaser/

    As you can see the, I am using the thumbnail grid style to show the caption for the images, but as you can see within the captions themselves, they are quite hard to distinguish, so I was wondering if you could change these a little in the back end and somehow get them to be more visible, thanks.

    The blog I need help with is dailyanimeart.com.

    Hi sunite. using the element inspector in your browser’s debugger you can see that the color of the caption is controlled by .gallery-caption color: #c4c4c4;

    .wp-caption .wp-caption-text, .entry-caption, .gallery-caption {
    margin-top: 5px;
    margin-top: 0.5rem;
    color: #c4c4c4;
    }

    You should be able to override this using the CSS editor. I’m not sure about the exact syntax… I’d have to play with it…

    .gallery-caption color: #000; /* for black color */

    you could tweak the font-size too if that helps make it more readable
    .gallery .gallery-item {
    font-size: 14px;
    font-size: 1.4rem;
    line-height: 18px;
    line-height: 1.8rem;
    }

    I don’t think I have access to the CSS, also I am talking about the .com version of wordpress, which is hosted by them, and without a paid upgrade, I don’t have access to the CSS.

    I agree with paulmozina, you should do it in “Custom CSS”. I’m pretty sure you should be able to access it on wordpress.com blog, you do have an access to Customizer?

    Yes I am on he customizer screen now, down the left I see options: Custom Design, Site Idenity, Colours & Backgrounds, Fonts, Header Image, Menus, Widgets, Static Front Page, Theme Options.

    I used to be able to see the custom CSS option somewhere, but can no longer find it. Seems like it’s a Premium option :/

    Hello,

    It seems you’re right, this is a premium option – https://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/. Sorry, but there’s nothing I can do as I won’t change theme for individual requests.
