Here is an example:

    1. Changing the font color works for all tags, but it complete ignore h1 .amp-wp-title or h2 .amp-wp-title. I tried to add manually via Console in Chrome, but it does nothing at all.

      1. Hi MD ZOHEB ANSARI,

        1. Thank for the reply Sonali. I managed to achieve what I wanted, but that I did with hard code by editing the plugin’s original code. I now have to edit every time the plugin is updated.

          When I write h1.amp-wp-title, it gets a yellow exclamation mark saying that this piece of style code is overqualified. When I put a space between h1 and .amp-wp-title, it doesn’t give any error. However, I still tried to save both the way and it didn’t do anything. The original code overwrites or there is some problem that doesn’t let me use h1.amp-wp-title giving the overqualified error.

          I have a few websites and all seem to have the same issue, that’s certainly a bug or restriction from AMP that I don’t know.

    3. Hey, i tried adding custom CSS for editing Paragraph from AMP.


      My attempt:

      p .amp-wp-article-content {

      font-weight: normal;
      font-size: 18px;
