    I have been modifying the Eschelon steel blue skin (very nice!!!) and I can get all of the changes I need except I can't get the background box behind the sociable icon to change (it is steel blue). I have removed all custom CSS and the only plugin I added was Hide My Site, but I added that AFTER I had the problem with the background behind the sociable. Thanks for you help!

    Also, I have been able to change all of the fonts except the blog preview fonts. I want to change the color. See attached.

    And now the slider doesn't allow for staged photos--they all show up full size.

    Add this to your custom CSS.

    .sidebar .widgettitle { color: red !important; }
    .sidebar .post_title a { color: blue !important; }

    Sorry--that didn't take care of anything. I still have the gray background behind the sociable icon, the slider pictures are not staged, and I don't know how to change the font on the sidebar for the blog heading or preview.

    I have been playing around with every possibility in the manage skins feature and I have fixed the blog widget font (shows up as "ALL THINGS DESIGN" in the image above). I still haven't been able to change the individual blog title font in the widget (shows up as "Our new web site" in the image above.)

    I also have not been able to get rid of the odd little piece of steel blue background behind the sociable font. And the slider pictures are still showing up as full size, even though I have specified them as staged.

    Please help! I am trying to get this site up as soon as possible and I need to get these things fixed!

    I have figured out work-arounds for almost everything posted above. They are not all pretty but they have worked. The one item that I have NOT been able to resolve is the the individual blog title font in the widget (shows up as "Our new web site" in the image above) and the blog date (shows up at 08-3-15 in the image above).

    I realize that by posting this additional note, my question will probably be put back to the end of the cue. I decided to post the note anyway so you don't waste your time answering questions that I have already resolved in one way or another. That being said, PLEASE TELL ME HOW I CAN CHANGE THE BLOG TITLE FONT AND THE BLOG DATE FONT as shown in the image above. Thanks for your help!

    Add this to your custom CSS.

    .widget .post_title, .widget .post_title * { font-size: 12px !important; font-family: verdana !important; }
    .widget .post_meta, .widget .post_meta * { font-size: 12px !important; font-family: verdana !important; }
