    Changing color of discussion meta

    div.Meta.DiscussionMeta a{
    color: #000000 !important;
    }
    
    div.Meta.DiscussionMeta {
    color: #000000 !important;
    }
    

    Change the text inside post:

     div.Item-Body div.Message{
         color: #000000 ! important;
    }

    I would also spend some time to learn how to use firebug :)

    Sounds like you need to learn

    1) how to clone a theme
    2) how to change the custom.css in the theme.
    3) web-developer tools

    Thanks to both of your answers. I have fixed my issue by finding this code in Firebug and adapting it.

    .ItemDiscussion .Meta, .DataList .Meta { color: black; font-size: 14px; } .ItemDiscussion .Meta, .DataList .Meta { color: black; font-size: 14px; } .Meta, .MItem, .MItem a { color: black; font-size: 14px; }
    I did know the basics of CSS, but i did not know how to apply styles to an item i did not know the name of.

    Thanks for showing me Firebug. My websites just got a lot better.
