Support » Fixing WordPress » Left sidebar text white in IE7 but fine in other browsers

  • I’m updating my site with ‘My Woodboard’ theme and have gotten bogged down with the left sidebar (.categories, .widgets). The text is coming up white in IE7, but is correct (#9A8766) in Firefox, Opera, Chrome, etc. However, the ‘h2’ and ‘a:hover ‘ colors are all working as planned.

    I can change the background color if necessary to enable the white text to become more visible, but I was hoping to keep the left sidebar color scheme as is and find a solution to the problem.

    Thanks for any help!

  • The “My Woodboard” theme has nasty spam links links in the footer (in the totally fake “credits” section). Get rid of them all. Finding WordPress themes through Google searches is a good way to end up with a spammed or hacked theme. Here is a much better place to find a theme:
