Hi, I am not sure were to look, I don't think there is an easy option in the theme?

Is there an easy way to change the colour of the text after "Read More:"

By default it is the same colour as the posts.

Thank you

There is no specific option for that. You generally use CSS for that kind of styling.

I am talking about the short text showing on post/excerpts after the: ... >> "Read More":
It would look very nice to have a different colour there.

Actually, the short text is a link to the full post, with title of the post.

use FireBug in FireFox and you can examine the element to see if there is a class associated with it. You can then use that to construct a CSS selector and rule to change the color. Just put that into the theme's CSS Inserts and you will be good to go.
