I am new to PHP (most of my programming is done in ASP.NET and C#) so please bear with me. I am trying to add a horizontal list of my categories in my header, but am having some issues. Currently I am using the "list_cats" function (http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/list_cats) (which works, except I can't change the font color in the CSS, only the font size and font family). Anyways, the list_cats function is saying it is depreciated and any of these functions (http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/) should be used instead, but I can't get them to work.
(I hate being a n00b again). Thanks in advance.
