  • I’m having difficultly changing the appearance of the buttons for bolding, italicizing, etc. on my comments.php file. I was able to change the color and give the buttons a border, but I cannot seem to affect their size. I don’t want them to be big and in two columns. I would rather they be a size relative to the text in the button and not all the same size. For some reason the changes I make in the stylesheet affects the search button in the sidebar, but not the buttons in the comment form.

    For the period that you are requesting help, I suggest that you switch off your registration requirement. Asking people to register just to see the problem is a bit much.

    I think you should be looking to alter the button size in the code inside the comments file.

    Sorry. I forgot that was enabled.

    The buttons near the comments are run by javascript, so I can’t see what the javascript is using to identify these buttons differently from your “search” button.

    Your search ID is searchsubmit and I don’t know what the id reference (or if there is one – check with the javascript author) is, but you can limit your styles to the search, hopefully, by putting them in the searchsubmit reference like this in your style.css:

    #searchsubmit {border:none; background:transparent; text-align:left; color: #006633; font-size: 14px;padding-right: 10px; }

    Or whatever you want in there. This is from my style sheet. Hopefully, it will then only change the search button and not the little quicktag button-like things you have on your comments. To change those, you will have to check the javascript or the author of it.
