Gallery caption font colour makes it hard

    Hello theme dev,

    I have a blog post here:

    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



    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 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 :/




    It seems you’re right, this is a premium option – Sorry, but there’s nothing I can do as I won’t change theme for individual requests.
