Changing Index Page Colors (10 posts)

    In the CSS page, which part do I edit to change the background colors?
    I have two shades of color currently, white on the center and dark green on the two left and right columns. Would like to know how to change colors. TIA.

    You can use the BODY selector:
    body {background: #fff;}
    This would give you white on your whole page. Then in your #menu-left and #menu-right selectors you could add the same line as above, but change the colour codes to whatever you like.
    #menu-left {background: #039;}
    #menu-right {background: #c1f;}
    Could you post a link to your site?

    With 1.0 you shouldn't be including links.websogs.com.php anymore, it's now wp-includes/links-update-xml.php

    Yeah sucks. I was working on the template and the layout.css when something screwed up.
    I went back to version 072.

    I don't know if this is useful here, but I've just modified the CSS for my page for links display in the main body.
    The links are now a shade of red, and they go orange when hovered.
    To use it, you'll need to use
    Just drop this into the wp-layout.css anywhere.
    a.main:link {
    color: #cc0000;
    outline: none;
    text-decoration: none;
    a.main:visited {
    color: #cc0000;
    a.main:hover {
    color: #FF3300;
    text-decoration: none;
    a.main:active {
    color: #FF9933;
    There's probably a more elegant solution, but this does for me :)

    Okay .. since doing this, I've been manually putting in 'class="main" ' when adding links, and that got boring. So I had a look, and it was easy to get the program to do it for me.
    In the file quicktags.js, the second function from the bottom should be amended to read;
    if (!edCheckOpenTags(i)) {
    var URL = prompt('Enter the URL' ,defaultValue);
    if (URL) {
    edButtons[i].tagStart = '';
    edInsertTag(myField, i);
    That sorts links from the main login panel.
    In the file bookmarklet.php, the line above /* /big funky fixes */ should read;
    $content = '
    That sorts links when using the 'Press-it' function.
    They aren't big clever things, but they make my blogging better :)

    Try #2
    Second function from the bottom is
    function edInsertLink(myField, i, defaultValue)
    Put 'class="main" ' between the a and the href of that statement.
    In the line of text which is above "big funky fixes " (it's about halfway down), do exactly the same thing.
    Of course, you could put any declared class in there for your links.
