Fasttrack theme - problem with link categories (2 posts)

    I like the fasttrack template (found at alexking.org) but have run into a problem trying to customize it. Namely, by default it does not show WordPress link categories along with the links (which seems like an oversight, or am I the only one who uses link categories?). Anyway, I replaced this in its index.php:

      <?php get_links('-1', '
    • ', '
    • ', ' '); ?>

    with this:

      <?php get_links_list(); ?>

    This shows the link categories ok, but... the link font sizes are SMALLER than the link font sizes of the other items on the sidebar (which looks wrong). If I REMOVE the UL tags, the font size is correct but each link category shows a bullet next to it. I have tried putting both "list-style: none" and "list-style-type: none" in about every place imaginable in the style.css but the bullets will not go away. Very frustrating. I want the links to be the same size as every other link on the sidebar, with no bullets.

    I do not see this problem with the default kubrick theme (it is using get_links_list too), but I just cannot get it working with fasttrack. Any ideas?

    For tracking down these sort of CSS problems, your best friend is Firefox with the Web Developer extension installed. It allows you to edit your CSS and see the results on the fly. Without a link to your site to see the exact CSS you are using; it will be nigh impossible for people to solve this for you. To take a guess at the problem; I'd try editting the following part of the CSS to include the font-size you want.
    #sidebar ul li {
    margin: 0.5em 0 0 0;
    padding: 0;
    #sidebar li a:link, #sidebar li a:visited {
    color: #8a3207;
    text-decoration: none;
    #sidebar li a:hover {
    color: #753206;
