I've just started checking out the Twentytwenty theme but I can't change text color in my pages because the body color is set inline within a <style> tag called twentytwenty-style-inline-css which is generated by wp_head.

I understand the importance of these styles, but why override body?

I've looked all over and I cannot seem to find how to stop wp_head from generating these styles.

Is there any way to easily fix this or should I just us an older theme?

  • you can change colors in the admin area -> "Appearance" -> "Customise"

  • There doesn't seem to be an option for page text, just ones for links and background colors. Nov 22, 2019 at 17:29
  • oh yes I read to quickly. to customise the text color, you can use the filter theme_mod_accent_accessible_colors.

  • Have you tried !important in your own CSS. Not ideal but it will tell you if its a priority problem. If it works let me know and I'll write it up as an answer. Nov 22, 2019 at 19:51

    @STEAMworksLearningCenter well yeah it would work but I'd rather not build my CSS around !important since that'd probably end up breaking other things. Nov 23, 2019 at 18:19

 add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', function() {
        $styles = wp_styles();
        $styles->add_data( 'twentytwenty-style', 'after', array() );
    }, 20 );
  • This worked for me - I was able to remove the inline styles from the head using this. Mar 26, 2020 at 15:42
