    Hi Bryan, sorry to bother you with what is surely an amateur question.
    I’m using your colorsnap WP theme for my site. I’ve had my header set at a particular color for months and recently it went white (maybe post colorsnap update?) In my appearance settings it is still set to the original color (a darkish red) but the header remains white and will not let me change it. There’s probably a way to go into the code and change it
    but I’m just not that sophisticated. I went in there and could not
    discern the precise point where I would insert the proper code. A
    friend did this awhile back to get me the color I wanted because this
    seems to a be a long standing issue but somehow his work was undone. It would really make my day to finally be able to control the color of my header without having to be a wordpress whiz. Please sir, I beg of you!

    I hope you are well. thank you Bryan…

    It looks like the correct theme color is triggering for the menu, but if you want to manually style it:

    nav {
      background-color: #777 !important;
    }

    And of course change the color code.

    Thank you Brian, but it’s not the theme color that’s off, it’s the header color. If you go into appearance and look at header you’ll see it’s set to red but appears white on the website and is unresponsive. There is a basic glitch in the theme.

    Not sure I understand what’s going on then, can you please share a screenshot of the problem?

    Thank you.

    I’m sorry, I don’t know how to include a screenshot. If you open up the home page http://www.essentialecology.com you see that the header or title is in white letters. [Essential Ecology Health Coaching ; Physical Resilience. Mental Hygiene. Spiritual Nutrition.]

    These letters should be red and in the normal place one would put their color preference I have done so but it is unresponsive. Perhaps it can be changed by going directly into the code but I don’t know how to do this. A friend did it once for me and it worked for a few months but recently the color changed back to white on its own. I have another friend who could probably help me here but I was just hoping for a real fix so that in the future if I need to change the title color I can just click into Appearances, click on Header, change Header Color, save, and be done! Header color has never been responsive, it is the only problem I’ve encountered with this theme, from the beginning. Is that clear? I apologize for the extra attention this is taking, I’m sure I’m one of your least sophisticated users. Thanks Bryan…

    I understand what you mean now. The word “header” can be confused with multiple things. Technically, you’re right, it is a header, but for future reference most people refer to it as the site title and this will help move things along quicker.

    There’s no built in option either from the theme or WordPress to customize the site title and the proper way to customize is with CSS. So the way your friend helped you before is the proper way to handle it.

    The reason you may have lost the customization is from upgrading, assuming you weren’t using a child theme (http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes).

    Here’s what you’re looking for:

    #site-title a, #site-title h1 a, #site-title h1 {
      color: #FF0000;
    }
