[resolved] How do I change the text formating of the names of links categories? (5 posts)

    Ok so i've looked around this forum a bit and could not find what I need, sorry if this is gone over elseware and I missed it

    I want to change the text formating of the links categories name, like the way WP shows the word "blogroll". The links formating I think I can change via
    < ul > tags etc.

    But I want to change the formating, text size and spacing of the actual list name above the links.

    Where do I change this and how? Any ideas?

    (I should say I'm running WP 2 and using the DarkNight 2.0 template that i have hacked up slightly)

    Go to the Theme Editor and look at the stylesheet.css template... look for designations that have "sidebar" and it's rather simple after that. Good luck.

    Hmmm, i see designations that say "#menu" meaning sidebar in this case, but can't seem to find anything to help. I could be missing it.

    All my links are fine and all my list titles but one are fine (Categories, About, Meta , Archive etc)are ok, the only one that looks wrong is BLOGROLL, that title is small, in a diffrent font and has huge spacing...is this my template? Or am I not looking in the right place to change this?

    Hm, it's been awhile since I've tinkered with my own category bar. But if the designations say "#menu", then you experiment with changing the font sizes and such. That's what I did on my site

    I just looked over my own templates and neither of the designations for "#sidebar" actually had a font attribute. If I recall correctly, I merely changed the colors and used the global CSS font type.

    If you're looking to assign an entirely different font type, you'll need to put something like the following to give the sidebar a unique font styling:

    font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-size: 0.9em;

    Hope that's of some help to you.

    helped a lil bit...

    I think I have it now...in this theme i'm using the list link header is automatically generated between < h2 > tags which are invisable and those are a very small font size in this theme.

    I changed the font % in the style sheet for h2 tages, than found the date-header in the style sheet and made it look like this to keep it small...

    .date-header {
    margin:1.5em 0 .5em;
    font:bold 78%/1.4em "Trebuchet MS",Trebuchet,Arial,Verdana,Sans-serif;
    }
