    I’d love to be able to change the comment text color for each of my pages. It’s just too dark for any of the themes. And if I change anything else, the theme isn’t customizable enough. I’d love to be able to actually change colors for every area. Can that be done? My main concern is with the comment boxes being such dark text. Thanks! :) I have the upgrade color choosing options, but it’s not detailed enough to control the appearance of my site. What should I do?

    The blog I need help with is


    Hi there. Which parts of the comment box would you like to alter? Perhaps we can provide you with Custom CSS that will do the trick. Cheers.



    Thank you for responding! It took me a while to get back to you, because I was trying to decide if I really want it changed… I do. It’s actually the text color of the actual comments/responses and the names of the people posting replies to posts. It’s like a green on a purple background, and is very difficult to read. I’d love plain white (or perhaps very close to it, as an off-white – and to have those comments & names be perhaps one size larger.

    How do I do that? Is it something you can do? I don’t want any other changes or colors altered.

    Thank you!!!!

    Howdy! It appears the color contrast issue was a bug — thanks for bringing it to our attention. I’ve just made a change, and there should now be adequate color contrast between the background color and comment colors. Take a look, and feel free to adjust your color customizations to get the desired result.

    You can increase the font size of the comments by applying something like the following to your Custom CSS panel:

    li.trackback {
    font-size: 110%; /* This value can be adjusted to suit your tastes */



    Hi @kristinsmusicstudio! Do you still need help? Cheers!



    I’m closing this out. Feel free to open another thread if you need more help. Cheers.
