[resolved] Entry-meta color in Category pages (3 posts)

    Hi, I am struggling to change the color of my entry-meta and entry-utility info in my category pages. I edited the entry-meta and entry-utility sections in my CSS to change the colors from default blue to my desired color of grey (#888) and the color changed in my homepage and posts, but not when you click on a category. I'm using the Twenty Ten theme.

    Please help!!

    try and force the style using the !important after the format, before the semicolon:

    .entry-meta a,
    .entry-utility a {
    	color: #888!important;
    }
    .entry-meta a:hover,
    .entry-utility a:hover {
    	color: #EC74AF!important;
    }

    not ideal, but it seems to work.

    actually, this style from marketplace.css (http://parisinpink.com/blog/wp-content/plugins/wp-e-commerce/themes/marketplace/marketplace.css?ver=3.7.59) is overwriting your selection:

    .category a{
      color:#0066CC;
      }

    the interference is triggered by the body_class .category which is added by twentyten to the body tag of category archives.

    btw:
    twenty ten as the default theme of wp3 will be overwritten with the next upgrade of your wordpress version - all your modification will be lost.

    strongly consider to create a child theme: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    and keep making regular backup copies of your theme files

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    I just deactivated the e-commerce plugin (which I don't use anymore anyway) and that did the trick.

    Thank you as well for suggesting to create a child theme - I'll definitely do that.
