In this video, learn how to edit a CSS property that already exists.
- [Instructor] Before we start changing our CSS, … there's one thing that we should do. … We should look at what settings … we can change through the customizer. … Sometimes I'll spend an hour customizing dozens of colors … only to realize those colors were controlled … by one setting in the customizer … and I could've saved myself a ton of work. … One thing that this thing does … is it filters our blog images … and overlays a color on top of them. … And by default, that color is blue. … I could spend a lot of time customizing those colors, … but instead let's change that setting in the customizer … and then write code for things … that we can't change in the customizer. … So I'll go to appearance, customize, … and then I'll go to colors. … I'll change the primary color to custom … and here I can select any color I want. … If you notice, the links at the top are changing … and if I click into blog, … you can see that the images for each of our blog posts … are also changing as well as the links and the block quotes. …
