    Already changed the code for the font color in the CSS template but has zero effect. Maybe its locked down somehow!

    Its one of the elegant themes templates.

    This is what you do -

    Open your css file based on color of the theme:
    *style-Blue.css
    *style-Red.css
    *style-Green.css
    *style-Purple.css

    Then find
    For the sidebar
    The colors you need to change are highlighted above in red! :)

    Hey, thanks.

    I enjoyed this mini tutorial on css. I always get so confused and it takes me hours of trial and error to figure out how css affects my web page. I think it is super powerful though. I'm curious as to how you guys learned it? Are you guys cs/ce majors? I wish I majored in cs. I just got my chemical engineering degree and it has nothing to do with IM! :p
