Styling the Octopress Blog
Wow, this was super confusing.
But I think I successfully changed the color scheme to something more stylish.
How I Did It
With lots of help. Specifically, this post and this one from the Octopress folks. Basically, I went into the sass directory, where I uncommented a couple things and played around with them before substituting some cool colors in and seeing what would happen. Apparently, if you use
and then navigate your browser to localhost:4000, you can see your changes in real time. Cool.
While I'm doing this, I'm also learning how to use Markdown, so please forgive any weird formatting.
I'm still having trouble changing the hover color on the h1 title links for each post though, so if anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate it.
Well, that's it for now. I think I've pretty much done all I wanted to do today. I'm also not doing too well on separating my git commits, so sorry. Work in progress.
