I've created my blank Omega subtheme, and have begun messing around in global.css.

I've managed to be able to customize every attribute of every area of my theme using "inspect element,' the Admin Appearance tab (for regions, etc.), and good ole Google, but for the life of me I haven't figured out how to modify text and link color using CSS.

As far as I can tell, it's because "color: #333," for example, needs to target specific text, such as ,
, etc. So, my question is, how do I go about changing the color of text in an entire area (being it a section, region, block,

, whathaveyou)?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Godspeed, Drupalers.

I do not use Omega; but I do use the FireBug add-on for FireFox
to discover exactly which CSS declaration
affects any element on my pages.

FireBug is the only tool I have ever used to discover
which CSS declaration is directly affecting a specific element.

To view a brief introductory video on FireBug
go to this page:


...and close to the top, and on the right, of that page,
see the box entitled "Introduction to Firebug".

Click the text link "Watch now »".


Note: While using FireBug,
Un-check the two options...
- Aggregate and compress CSS files.
- Aggregate JavaScript files.
...on your site's page
...if you have previously checked them
(by default they were originally un-checked).

Otherwise Firebug will be giving you the CSS location
for the cached CSS files instead of your theme's CSS files.

...if you understand what I am trying to say.


You might also find more specific help for the Omega theme
in that Theme's Issues Que at:

You can do a 'Search' from that page,
and if you do not find your answer,
you can click the link "Create a new issue",
and use the Category "Support request".

And / or see the "Omega Theme Documentation Handbook" at:

All the best; intended.
