    First, here is my new WordPress blog:

    http://kathymoore.daynote.com

    I am pretty happy with it, but there are a couple of things I'd like to do and just can't figure out how to do them.

    First, in the sidebar, I'd either like the list title OR list items to be a different color, preferably black. I don't seem to be able to change the color. If one of those controls the post title colors, I'd prefer to leave them pink and change the other item to black.

    Second, I'd LOVE to be able to have an image behind my post titles, sort of like in the theme Almost Spring. I'd love a little gradient bar that spans the title and then a very small gif at the end. Is that doable?

    Third, I also wanted a nice gradient background, but can't seem to make it show up, even though I think I'm putting it in the right place in the stylesheet and linking to the correct url.

    In case you can't tell, I'm using just a modified Default theme.

    Thanks for any help!

    First - This affects titles (actually, header text) for sidebar elements:

    #sidebar h2 {
    font-family: 'Lucida Grande', Verdana, Sans-Serif;
    font-size: 1.2em;
    }

    Just add something like

    color: #000;

    to make font color black.

    Second - Add this to your css:

    .post h2 {
    background-image:url(/blog/images/post_title_bg.jpg);
    }

    The path to the image (and the image name) would have to be adjusted to the one you're looking to use.

    Third - Background for? What particular section of your layout are we talking about?

    Thank you so much! Okay, one and two are handled. Now, on three, what I'd like to do is center my blog and put the gradient in the background. Is that doable?

    Thanks again! I am so in love with my new blog!

    One more question...

    On the index page, the title background looks great, but when you look at a single post, the bottom gets cropped off. Can I fix that?

    Thanks again!
