  • 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?

    everything else looks good.

    With 1.0 you shouldn’t be including 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.

    Can someone tell what did I do wrong with this. I would like for the background color to be black but yet it’s white. What did i do wrong.
