Please forgive my lack of knowledge of customising my theme. I am quite new at all this but others might need to know my questions so here goes!
Firstly, even though I know I can change the colour of the text within each post, how can I, by default, change the colour of the excerpts on the home page? It seems a bit too grey for what I need and I would like to make the text black.
Regarding the post titles, is it possible to change the colour of those too if I wanted? How would I do that?
Secondly, how do I change the colour of the background? Can I input a different colour code anywhere? Also, if I wanted to change the background to an image, could I do that? Finally, lets say my image was a very think line that had a graduated colour, could I repeat that along the x or y axis so the whole of the background becomes a graduated colour?
Sorry to ask such relatively simple questions but I would be extremely grateful for any help.
All the best,
