    You would do it in your stylesheet. Since I don’t know which theme you are using or your website, I can’t be more specific than that.

    If you provide me with a link to your site, or let me know which theme you are using, I can tell you what you should be looking for in your code.

    The default font on Minimum can be found by searching for this in your stylesheet:

    [css]font-family: ‘Open Sans’, sans-serif;[/css]

    Replace that font with the font of your choice.

    For link and hover colors look for this:

    [css]

    /* Hyperlinks
    ———————————————————— */

    a,
    a:visited {
    -moz-transition: all 0.2s ease-in-out;
    -webkit-transition: all 0.2s ease-in-out;
    color: #ed702b;
    font-weight: 700;
    text-decoration: none;
    transition: all 0.2s ease-in-out;
    }

    a:hover {
    color: #3e3e3e;
    text-decoration: none;
    }
    [/css]

    The colors are the 6 digit (or 3 digit) numbers with the # in front of them.

    Any color can be changed to the colors of your choice.

    Thank you. and a few more questions:

    on the featured image: It’s not showing on my homepage next to the posts. I changed layotus and it shows fine all my previous posts w/ featured images from the past template. I just tried making a blog today and sized the image very small (smaller than the others on ohter pages) but it’s still showing so huge it’s taking up the whole screen.

    How can I solve this?

    this is an example of the large featured image

    http://www.abbymalonephoto.com/snow-dogs/

     

    In the theme settings it’s set for “featured image” as “home top which is like 400x 200″

    It’s still not displaying featured images on the front page

    In addition I put the code snipped to remove the site description and header and it’s still not gone from the front page
