    I would like to know how to change the color of my link in my posts. I already changed the color of all the links but it didn't change the ones in the post only when they are hovered on. Can someone help me? My site is http://ritareviews.net

    The links in your posts look different from the theme defaults in my browser (they're currently orange instead of brown) so I'm not sure what you're asking. Are you trying to change the post title colors or something else?

    No it was the links.So it must be just in my browser. I use Firefox and they all look one color in the post on mine so I wasn't sure if I had actually changed them or not. Thank you for checking it for me.

    I thought before it may have been just my browser but now I see that I may not have explained things correctly. I am wanting to change the color of words that I have linked within a post. All of my links are the colors i want. I want the words links in a post to be the same color as my other inks. If you click or hover on them they change. I have added
    }
    .postContent a {
    color: #e05e4a;
    text-decoration: underline;
    }

    .postContent a:hover {
    color: #e05e4a;
    text-decoration: underline;
    }
    to my css but it didn't help me. For example on my post: http://ritareviews.net/2012/04/shutterfly-for-mothers-day/ the words "photo gifts" in the second sentence is a linked word but it is the same color as all the other words. Can someone please help me change this?

    .postContent is not a class in this theme, which is why your code isn't working. Try replacing that with .entry-content instead.

    You may also need to add a third section of code with a:visited to catch any links that have already been clicked.
