Alpine theme: Changing Color of Background and Fonts

I have minimal developer skills.
For the Alpine theme, what CSS elements do I edit to change:

  1. Background color
  2. Text color of title and body of posts
  3. Font size and text color of the navigation text.
  4. Remove the “Also on” button

I’ve done a couple of the changes you mention (like the background color, text color, also changed how the links are decorated).

The background color is simple enough, include it in a custom CSS (don’t change the theme directly):

body {
	background-color: #eee8d5;

Now from what I can tell, Apline is based on another theme, and it shows in the code, you have style.css and alpine.css. The trick is to sometimes modify them in both. I don’t have the changes I’ve made in front of me, but I remember that to remove the link decoration from that highlight was a pain, because it’s defined in one css and the animation affect I think was in the other CSS.

I know this is not what you’re asking for specifically, but hopefully it puts you in the right direction. Some of the basic concepts I put on my wiki.
