  • Resolved tooly228


    If you visit my site, you’ll see that my under my css for the link, the code is as follows:

    a:link, a:active {
    border:medium none;

    However, I want my categories and tags which can be found just below the post title to be a different colour meanwhile they are under the code above. How do I change the colour of the categories links but not change the colour of the other links in the post content?

  • Change #3664B2 to color you want that does not change links in post. how ever it changes links in side bar.

    No, it does change the link colour in the post and the sidebar. I just want the categories links to be a different colour.

    These are the only “link” styles within your CSS.


    You would need to define a new class within your CSS and assign it specifically to the “entry2” class and then change the color on it.


    #entry2 a:link,a:active{text-decoration:none;color:#3664B2;border:none;}
    entry2 a:visited{text-decoration:none;color:#069;border:none;}
    entry2 a:hover{text-decoration:underline;color:#69c;border:none;}

    Sorry, should have been this……..

    #entry2 a:link,a:active{text-decoration:none;color:#3664B2;border:none;}
    #entry2 a:visited{text-decoration:none;color:#069;border:none;}
    #entry2 a:hover{text-decoration:underline;color:#69c;border:none;}

    OK I’ve added them to my CSS stylesheet but how do I assign the categories to that specific class when it’s in PHP. This is what I have in index.php:

    <div class=”entry2″>Categories: <?php the_category(‘, ‘) ?>…

    See the categories is under that div class but how do I make the links in the categories under the #entry2 a: class?


    Sorry, try .entry2 not #entry2. This would then match your entry2 class that you already have and tie in the A link attributes.

    Something is very screwy with your code.

    </div class="entry"><div class="entry2">Categories:

    There should never be a class=”” in a closing DIV tag.

    What template are the category tags links coming from? You will need to go to that template and add class=”entry2″ to the a href tag.

    This worked!

    try .entry2 not #entry2

    I thank you so much for your help on this. And the reason why I put class=”” in the closing div tag because I wanted that class to end and not the other class that it is under.
