edit text in widgets

Hi, this may need two threads…
My site is http://southcumberlandcommunityfund.org/home-2/
I want to do two things:
1. Change the color of the links text (blue doesn’t show up well against the green)
2. enable a link in the text of the Text widget containing the video (so that the words ‘Youtube channel’ can be a link)

And, since I have no experience with CSS, I’m hoping I can do these things in the Widget Styles areas.
Thank you!

    Hi Patrick,

    You can fix/change this with some custom CSS. If you navigate to Appearance > Custom CSS, you’ll get our custom CSS editor. Just add the following code.

    .entry-content a{
        color:SELECT YOUR COLOR !important;

    change SELECT YOUR COLOR to the color of your choice. For your second issue kindly open a new thread for it and will jump to it. We encourage one question per thread :-)

    Thank you for your patience and understanding

    Thread: enable url link in text widget

    Hi, I hope I’m following good forum etiquette – I’m posting here because it’s the same issue.
    I changed the text in the first box on the main page at southcumberlandcommunityfund.org and the text color has reverted. It’s not black, as desired, and as the custom CSS is supposed to stipulate.

    So the existing custom CSS didn’t get applied to it. ?

    Hey Patrick

    Sorry it took us so long to get to you.

    Let’s approach this from another angle. Edit the row concerned by clicking the wrench icon far right then click Attributes and enter a row CSS class in the first field:


    Then, go to Appearance > Custom CSS. You’re using Vantage Free to install our stand alone CSS plugin first: https://wordpress.org/plugins/so-css/.

    Insert the following:

    /* Custom Page Builder Styles */
    .black-text * {
    color: #000;

    Give that a go and let me know how it goes.

    Hey Andrew,
    My turn to apologize now.
    That worked perfectly. Thank you so much!

    Awesome :) Glad to hear you’ve made progress.

    If anything else comes up, let me know.

    Cheers for now.
