    I did some searching, and didnt come up with much, i am making a new theme based of the Kubrick template, you can view my progress at http://www.thegeekdom.net/blog

    Anyways i have some questions that i am hoping anyone can help me with.

    1.) where can i adjust the link colors for the page? the blue highlights, obviously dont fit my theme any longer?

    2.) where can i adjust the background for the sidebar? i want to change the color, and add a nice graphic line, distringuishing the difference between the sidebar, and the main page?

    - the two questions above, i did look inside the css file etc, but no luck, i am very new to the coding part. sorry.

    3.) How can i make the search form, aside on the bottom left side of the header? i tried adding the php command that sits in sidebar.php to the header, but it just sits at the top, center, and doesnt function any longer.

    thanks for any help, anyone can offer.

    Q1: Look for CSS tags the references to "a" like these:


    h1, h1 a, h1 a:hover, h1 a:visited, #headerimg .description {
    text-decoration: none;
    color: white;
    }

    h2, h2 a, h2 a:visited, h3, h3 a, h3 a:visited {
    color: #333;
    }

    h2, h2 a, h2 a:hover, h2 a:visited, h3, h3 a, h3 a:hover, h3 a:visited, #sidebar h2, #wp-calendar caption, cite {
    text-decoration: none;
    }

    .entry p a:visited {
    color: #b85b5a;
    }

    There are others but hopefully you get the point.

    Q2: Try setting a color here:


    #sidebar {
    font: 1em 'Lucida Grande', Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;
    }

    That might work, maybe.

    As for Q3, that'd be harder to do. You'll probably have to use a new div tag.

    Your blog caption, "I'd love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code" -- interesting. What if we live in a non-linear universe? If it's true, and it sure seems to be in so far as I can tell, then everything you do, or don't do, makes a change. This is partially why it is said that a butterfly flapping its wings in China can start a hurricane in the Caribbean... Be deliberate ;-)
