WP RSS Multi Importer
[resolved] Titles have gray color (19 posts)

    Hi Allen.

    I am using multi-importer on homepage of the site (link below) and the titles of RSS articles are clickable but they are gray colored. I would like them to be blue colored so the readers know that these are clickable links. How can I do this?

    The tags have style="color:"

    Thanks,

    If you go into the admin for the plugin, look for the tab that says shortcode parameters. There is a parameter for changing the color of the link.

    It has "hdsize" and "hdweight". I don't see a parameter for headline color. The only one for color is "testyle" which works on Today or Earlier tags.

    I tried [wp_rss_multi_importer hdstyle="color:#FF0000"] but that did not work.

    Ok. I'll add a parameter tomorrow so you can change the link color. I'll let you know. Thanks

    In the meantime you could probably style with CSS using the template.css file

    ok..here is the easiest way to change the color

    go into the templates.css file and add this:

    .rss-output a{
    color:blue; //or whatever color you want
    }

    Hi Allen, I'm having a similar problem but the Titles are the same as the text. I tried the suggestions above but nothing seems to change. I'm looking to bold them and make them the same color as the rest of my links.

    I'm using the sidebar widget.

    ok...try this:

    .news a {

    color:blue !important; // or any color you want

    }

    note - you need to have !important in there to override your theme's CSS

    that worked, but how do I make it bold?

    ok..do this:

    .news a {

    color:blue !important; // or any color you want
    font-weight:bold;
    }

    now, remember, if you change the CSS like this you need to save it (go to the template options panel in the admin section) so when I push a new update (which overwrites all the files) you can restore the CSS file you are currently working on.

    also, if you want to make the title bigger and bolder, try this:

    .news a {
    color: green !important;
    font-size: 14px !important;
    font-weight: 900 !important;
    }

    Nope, only the color change worked. Everything else stayed the same.

    I cleared my browser cache too.

    It looks like I have some kind of issue with my Chrome browser. It loaded fine in Firefox.

    I'll have to figure my Chrome issue out.

    Thanks for your help!

    I already gave you a 5 star rating but even better yet, I've been multitasking and recommended it to my chat members about 15 minutes ago. someone actually asked for a configurable RSS importer.

    Thanks. Sounds like its a caching issue. Good luck and thanks for the kind rating!

    No Problem,
    I have it installed on all 12 of my WP sites. This is the only one I had to change the css on.

    Right. The different themes (assuming you use different themes) place different restrictions and/or styles to their sidebar widgets so that's likely why this is happening.

    Exactly.
    That's why I use yours. It auto adjusts to the size of the sidebar instead of having a rigid template that doesn't fit.
