Change the theme color on a wordpress site.

Does anyone know how to change the theme color on a wordpress site? I am trying to change the default color (black) into a different color. I can`t change the color simply in the theme. Where do I need to look in the HTML or CMS to change the color. 

I did look at Google Chrome (inspect element) and I found the code, but I did not see it in Wordpress

I know this is super vague!

  • Jon Tromans: There's a customise button in the left admin menu of WP that gives you some very basic changes.

    Appearance --> Customise

    Other than that you'll need to make changes to the CSS. Some themes have a custom code box or header box where you can slot in some extra code.

    Put any changes within a style tag and remember to use !important at the end of the css change.

    eg....

    <style>
    body {background-color: !important;}
    .nav a {font-size: 14px !important; color: #333 !important;}
    </style>
  • Julio Marquez: you can do that using style.css coming with your wp theme ;
