    Titles are displayed using the HTML H2 (header 2) tags. To change the color you would need to edit the CSS file and change the font color for H2 in posts.

    Is there a way to know how to do that?

    Can I do that in html section of the post. There is visible and html section on the post area. Can I do it there. Would you let me know how and where to do that?

    I really appreciate your support here.

    You can go into style.css in the appearance editor. Look for the line:

    .post h1, .post h2, .post h3 { margin:0px 0px 5px 0px}


    and change it to:

    .post h1, ..post h3 { margin:0px 0px 5px 0px}

    .post h2 { margin:0px 0px 5px 0px ; color:#999;}

    change the 999 for the color you want. The digits are red,green,blue

    don't forget to hit save at the bottom of the screen.

    That would change the H2 tag for every H2 in the post wouldn't it.

    How do you change the color only for the Post "Title"

    This is controlled in the styling tab.

    When users want to change the color of an in post H tag they just use the kitchen sink tool and use the color option.

    This gives way more flexibility to the user.

    YES OK I can see your point. Just would have been easier to have all titles consistent through out the site especially with auto blogging.

    Another thing I noticed is that the CSS scrunched up all the Headings - I figured out to change the CSS h1 h2 to have padding. Nice if it was padded by default.

    What is going to happen to my CSS fixes when the upgrades come thru?

    I thought they were consistent which was the problem.

    The padding is fixed in 2.2. We have a custom css box and child theme option in 2.2 as well.

    Make note of your css changes and you can just paste that css code into our custom styling box.
