Mantra

    I'm a newbie and just started playing with Mantra as a theme. Is there a way I can remove the text shadowing on titles etc. I find it makes the text less easily readable.

    Try removing:

    text-shadow: 2px 2px 0 #FFFFFF, -2px -2px 0 #FFFFFF, 3px 3px 1px #CCCCCC;

    from:

    #content h1, #content h2, #content h3, #content h4, #content h5, #content h6 {
        color: #0E85CD;
        line-height: 1.5em;
        margin: 0 0 10px 20px;
        padding-left: 10px;
        text-shadow: 2px 2px 0 #FFFFFF, -2px -2px 0 #FFFFFF, 3px 3px 1px #CCCCCC;
    }

    in style.css

    Thanks esmi
    That did the job on the headings on the page. I also removed the "text shadow" code that followed

    #site-title {
    float: left;

    font-size: 50px;
    line-height: 60px;
    margin-top:10px;
    margin-left:20px;
    padding-left:20px;

    I hope you realise how important your help was, you just helped me lose my virginity, that's the first css I've ever changed!

    See - it's not that hard. :-) If you use Firebug in conjunction with the CSS resources I gave you in your other topic, you should be able to work through these kinds of issues one at a time.

    Ok, so what's Firebug? (I really did mean NEWBIE!)

    WOW!

    Yes, I can see how that will make learning to play with this stuff much easier.

    Thanks again
