[resolved] Blogolife - changing style to remove red title icon (7 posts)

    I used this Blogolife template to create this website http://muskokastaffing.com/wordpress/ (still a work-in-progress). I've altered some of the style.css to remove the page title and a big red box that appeared beside it as well as the page being encompassed in a grey bordered box. However, as you can see in the top left corner under 'welcome' there is still a small red bar appearing there. I can not find where to remove this anywhere! I'm hoping once it is removed the content is centred properly as well. If someone could have a look and let me know their thoughts/ideas it would be greatly appreciated!

    figured the red box out:
    <div class="col1 fleft">
    <div class="postformat">
    <div class="format-icon"></div>
    <!--div class="left-corner"--></div>
    but it didn't fix the page centering problem!

    Not sure what you mean about the centering - it looks okay to me. But you really should not be making changes to theme files but rather using a Child Theme http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    Otherwise all your changes will be lost when the theme is updated.

    Looks like you have some errors that are likely causing problems:

    thanks WPyogi. Can i just copy my styles.css into a new child theme folder on my ftp site and it will keep everything i've done? Then i would delete my parent theme and reinstall a new blogolife theme so that it updates okay?
    Let me know if i have this correct. Or, should i just start over since it appears i have lots of errors that are causing problems? I appreciate your feedback as i'm pretty new to wordpress. Thanks!

    Page looks OK to me too (in Safari on Mac)

    If style.css is the only file you have updated, make a copy of the CSS file (or just in case, make a copy of ALL your current Blogolife theme files, you never know...), remove and reinstall the Blogolife theme, create a child theme as per the WordPress Codex instructions (with folder and css-file with specific "import instructions") and activate the child theme. It works like a charm!

    However, if you go more into more complex child-theme things... you run into more complex issues ;) As I currently am :(

    @jopsvanthof I agree with you?

    But your not sure? Hahaha!

    Sorry, I made a mess of that post. In short: the <!--more--> tag works, but the resulting "continue reading" link does not. And I'm afraid that is because of my child theme :(

    I now have to dig deeper in (1) the WordPress magic and (2) the Blogolife magic (as that seems slightly different than the default WordPress themes...)

    You think I should remove the confusing part of my last post? ;)
