Support » Fixing WordPress » Can’t get link colors to change

  • Hi,

    I’m working on a website (www.creepysites.com) and i’m trying to change all my link colors to green. I was able to get most of the page changed to green, except for the advertisements on the left and right hand sides of the page. I’ve gone through style.css a few times and changed all the colors to green without any luck. Any ideas?

    Also, i posted this before and was wondering again if anyone can help me. I’m having a problem where i can’t get the comments to work. When people click on “no comments” it brings them to the comments page but there is not option to post a comment, even though i have comments on on all my posts in wp-admin. If anyone can help me with this it’d be great. Thanks again.

    regarding the comments problem: Look in your template (single.php) there should be a line in there (most likely towards the bottom) that has this: <?php comments_template(); ?> That will include the comments form into the template when run.

    If that line doesn’t exist. Then you’ll need to add it where you want the comment form to be.

    Your ads are blue because you probably need to create a new style in your CSS. For Adbrite ads, they put a class in the link markup that you can use <a class="adHeadline"> in your CSS:

    a.adHeadline {color:green}

    Ok i figured out the comments problem (i accidentally deleted the single.php page without even realizing it) and i have one more question. Now when I click on “no comments” and go to the comments page, i’m getting a white bar in the middle of the page. Anybody know how i can get rid of it? Thanks a lot.

    If you don’t already have them, I’d suggest getting FireFox, and the Web Developer Toolbar. I’d have gone nutz w/o the WDT. I’ve got two buttons that are starting to fade becauseI click on them a lot. Under the Outline menu, select the Block-Level Elements. Then under the Information menu, select Display ID & Class Details. The first one will create colored borders around everything so you can see what boxes are where. The other one will tell you the ID and class name for all of those now outlined boxes. Find out where your mysterious bar is located and see what class/ID is associated with it. Then just find the right entry in the CSS and modify accordingly.
