Title font color changes back to black on Product theme with New Blog Template after making it templ

Hi gang,

I have a subdirectory install, so I created a new site, lets say: id/ tim. Then I use the Product template to make a nice customized template, domain map it which makes it an active blog, then daringly make the site a template blog, so I can use it to make a bunch of baby blogs.

What is weird is, my original blogs title font reverted back to the color black from magenta, and now I cannot change this H1 font, or even HR1 font, or even Link font color. I am dead in the water.

Any guidance is mucho appreciated.

regards,
Tim
