    Hi,

    Do you have the Custom CSS upgrade from WP.com?

    http://en.wordpress.com/products/custom-css/

    Try something like this to change the color of this area:

    .post-bottom {
    background: #888;
    }

    If it’s the color of the text you’d like to change try:

    .post-bottom a:link, .post-bottom a:visited {
    color: #323232;
    }

    Best Regards,
    Scott

    Hi scott,

    Thanks alot for that. It’s not possible to edit my blog’s CSS stylesheet. I viewed my blog’s original stylesheet but am seeing, it can’t be edited. How do i do it?

    Thanks

    In the custom design page, it’s written upgrade active. I think I upgraded when i was using a previous theme. Or where do I upgrade CSS. I’m still CSS learner.

    Thanks,
    Robert

    Hi Robert,

    The CSS Editor can be found under Edit CSS in the Appearance menu of your dashboard. It consists of a blank area for typing and two buttons:

    Do you see this?

    You should be able to add the CSS I provided above:

    .post-bottom {
    background: #888;
    }
    .post-bottom a:link, .post-bottom a:visited {
    color: #323232;
    }

    Best Regards,
    Scott

    Scott,
    I did paste on top of stylesheet and it worked. The color is only a problem now. I wanted white, your code is of brown or something close to that. And a code of the header, want that Facebook color of bluish. I appreciate your invaluable assistance Scott.

    Thanks,
    Robert

    Hey Robert,

    Try this instead:

    .post-bottom {
    background: #FFFFFF;
    }
    .post-bottom a:link, .post-bottom a:visited {
    color: #0079B2;
    }

    Let me know how that works. Thanks again!
    Scott

    Hi Scott,

    I am so sorry. I had to come back. I tried changing on my own with no success the footer color, the sidebar text color and the comments area color.
    I want the footer and comments sections to be white and the sidebar text color to be blue. I appreciate your help.

    Sincerely,
    Robert

    }

    #comments {
    background-color: #ffffff;
    }

    #comments h3 {
    color: #000;
    }

    2. Sidebar Text

    .widget ul li a {

    Hi Scott,

    Thank you so much Scott. It really worked. One more request; want to change my header color to grey. I think it will suit and complement the rest of the other colors of the blog. Please.

    Thanks,
    Robert
